Beyond the Cross and the Switchblade by David Wilkerson (1983)



Mass Market Paperback in Very Good (VG) condition. Light discoloration on the cover, otherwise clean and straight. 

People have constantly asked what happened to David Wilkerson, the 'skinny country preacher', since the publication of "The Cross and the Switchblade". This follow-up account includes stories about the people who are well-known through the pages of the first book, and about himself and his wife Gwen. Gwen, for example, had a severe bout of cancer, but through it they grew closer together.

David Wilkerson also tells about what happened to his work after publication of "The Cross and the Switchblade", about the film, and Pat Boone's role in it. This is more than a gossipy behind-the-scenes story. In each chapter there are accounts of spiritual adventures. "It took me years to discover the premier lesson, that God has a timing all His own, and that I must not be impatient when His timing doesn't coincide with mine."

"The spirit of God is still seen changing lives and transforming hopeless cases into triumphant witnesses." — Methodist Recorder
