David Wilkerson RIP

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The founder of Teen Challenge and Times Square Church in New York City died in a head on collision in Texas on Wednesday.

The Rev David Wilkerson, 79, was killed when the car he was driving went into the opposite lane and collided with an oncoming truck.

His wife, who was a passenger in the car with him, was rushed to hospital where she remains in a critical condition. The truck driver was also taken to hospital.

Read it all--one of the truly bright lights in his generation; KSH.

I read The Cross and the Switchblade as a quite young Christian; it made a deep impression for which I am still thankful to this day.
