Default The Cross and the Switchblade

Discussion is free to begin on the Cross and the Switchblade by Reverend David Wilkerson.

It is the thrilling true story of a country preacher's fight against teen-age crime in big-city slums.

I attended his Times Square Church for about a year.

No, it's for everyone. It's a megachurch.

I remember being at church one day and this guy who "caught the spirit" was running around the church. It's a real pentecostal/charismatic atmosphere where tongues and "prophecies" abound.

You know Rev Wilkerson died in a car accident this year right?

I guess I'd prefer to focus more on Catholic books at this point on my journey.

Well a great Catholic book to read is Story of a Soul.
