From the Book Jacket: "This is the thrilling story of Nicky Cruz's desperate battle against drugs, alcoholism, and a violent environment, as he searched for a better way of life on the streets of New York City." Now the founder of a Christian ministry that provides outreach to addicted and struggling youth, Cruz presents here the testimony of how he came to faith in Jesus Christ, and enumerates the reasons his new way of life has proved more fulfilling than his life on the streets. Includes ways in which parents, churches, and communities can reach out to gangs and to teens addicted to drugs and alcohol.
This remarkable woman spent the first 50 years of her life living peacefully with her father and sister above their watch shop in Harlem, Holland. When World War II broke out, this devoutly Christian family began providing "hiding places" for prosecuted Jews. Her great faith sustained her, then, through the several months in Nazi concentration camps, and the death of her father and sister. Since her release, she has been traveling all over the world, captivating audiences with her inspiring story. This self-styled "tramp for the Lord" told of that life in the bestselling THE HIDING PLACE. Here, as moving and dramatic, as filled with love and miracles, is the sequel to that story.
