Beyond the Cross and the Switchblade

Beyond the Cross and the Switchblade - David Wilkerson I don't remember much of the Cross and the Switchblade as it was a long time ago but I'm sure most people my age have heard of it and the story of Nicki Cruz . It was around the same time I was introduced to the Charismatic movement at age 14.I didn't see the movie unfortunately either, with Pat Boone, but I did like the hit song 'You Light Up My Life' recorded by Debbie Boone . It was on the radio quite a bit in the 70's. *sighThis book is basically an update on David Wilkersons life and mission after making the movie and writing the book and what some of the characters have gone on and done with their lives.
