Book Review: David Wilkerson
For readers who know the story of Wilkerson and Nicky Cruz, much of the first part of the book will seem like repeat information. However, we are given a better glimpse into Wilkerson's heart and motives behind his bold work among the gangs of New York. What was of most interest to me where the years after the events of New York. I was unaware of the broad impact of his crusades and his work, not only in preaching the Gospel, but also in ministering to the practical needs of the world.
I would easily put this book among one of the great Christian biographies that every Christian should read. Wilkerson was not a perfect man, but no follower of Jesus has been perfect. What we see in his life, though, is what God can accomplish in and through a man passionately in love with Him and fully surrendered to the work of the Kingdom of God.
