The dramatic and inspiring true story of a small town minister called to help inner city kids everyone else believed were beyond hope...

David Wilkerson was just a young preacher in the Pennsylvania hills when he was stunned by a new calling from God: go to New York City to speak to seven young gang members on trial for murder.

But something much greater was to come. Once in New York, David was inspired to stay for a lifetime of helping troubled teenagers get free of drugs and crime. With the word of God in his ears, he founded an inner-city ministry still known as the Teen Challenge to change their paths and alter thousands of lives forever.

Lots of action and shows some amazing faith. It also leaves you thinking about the other people in the world.

Need more copies of this book everywhere, maybe even in every hotel and motel room. After reading this book you will know that bad people, murderers, drug addicts and gang members can become good people.
