God is Awesome!

This is an amazing story of David Wilkerson and how he was lead by God to work with the young people of New York City who were caught up in Street Gangs, Prostitution and Drugs. Amazingly it relates to instances that happened 40 years ago but (sadly) could easily relate to life in the 21st Century.

With God and the help of the love, care and spiritual support of ordinary people these youngsters have had their lives turned around - this book is inspiring and uplifting. The organisation that was founded to help these young people, Teen Challenge, is still operating today all around the world.

Sadly David Wilkerson died in a car accident in April of this year but his vision still lives on!

A Very Powerful Book.

I believe that every Christian needs to listen to this audio book! It is very moving and shows the true nature of evangelism. From the moment I started listening to it I didn't want to stop. I had to find out what happened next. The narrator read beautifully. I like the way he changed his voice tonality when he narrated the parts of the Latin American gang members. This is an amazing audio book which shows that there are no limits to God's Grace and His Mercy. Hallelujah!
