Publisher's Summary

David Wilkerson, a man on a mission, stepped onto some of the world's most dangerous streets armed only with the simple message of God's love and the promise of the Holy Spirit's power. Then the miracles began to happen. Led by incredible faith, Wilkerson left his country pulpit in 1958 for the streets of New York City, where a murder trial of seven teenaged boys churned society's antipathy toward them. Even Wilkerson was bewildered by his sense of compassion, but in spite of doubt, he followed the Spirit's prompting to help the boys.
This is the amazing story of his journey, and of the mighty power of God to accomplish the impossible. One of the most inspiring and challenging true stories of all time, it has sold millions of copies throughout the world and has been made into a feature film.

As relevant today as when he wrote it

A strong, calm performance by Raymond Todd offsets perfectly the wonderful story of the impact God made on the gangs of New York. In an age when global extremism threatens to take over from local gangs as filling the emptiness inside our young people, and drug culture remains prevelant, the lessons this book traces are more relevant than ever.
