David Wilkerson May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011

The Cross and the Switchblade was one of the first Christian books I read as a teenager. It gave me a view of Christian life and ministry far different to anything I’d known before.

As a result of that book and the story it told, David Wilkerson became a genuine Christian celebrity – but he didn’t seem to be seduced by the trappings of celebrity and unlike so many of today’s preachers he didn’t water down his message.

Sadly he has been killed in a car accident in Texas.

More details can be found here:

A memorial service will be streamed live by the Times Square Church he established. Details will be posted on the Time Square Church website.
