About "Run Baby Run"
The book that has stunned and moved the hearts of millions. Cruz's classic testimony is still compelling reading thirty years after its first publication. A childhood overshadowed by spiritualism in his Puerto Rican home preceded a harsh and violent adolescence as the leader of one of New York's toughest street gangs. Chilling scenes of knife fights, torture and murder dominated the life of a young man proud and feared on the outside, but inwardly running scared. His fears and loneliness were brought to the surface through an encounter with the unlikely character of preacher David Wilkerson, who led Cruz to open his life to Christ - an incredible conversion that amazed all who knew him.

This book is absolutely fantastic. I first read this book when I was 17. It was a copy passed down from my mother. It is a true story about one young man when from a notorious gang to loving God. This inspiring story proves how fantastic the love of God is and that if you believe, you can turn your life around just as Nicky Cruz did. I recommend this book to everyone from the age of 12 upwards. Other good reades by Nicky Cruz are "The Devil had no mother" and also the book written by the reverend David Wilkinson who saved Nicky whose book "The Cross and The Switchblade" tells of his triumph.
Read this book for the first time when i was 16, and it touched me that much that i got baptized and became a member of my church. This book also made me realise i wanted to work with youth involved in gangscrime. Im now nearly 25 and am currently taking my degree in youth work and have a job working with gangs. That is how powerful this book is, i recommend it even to no christian friends. Just a truely powerful, moving, thought-provoking book that every christian should read in their life time.
This book is absolutely fantastic. I would HIGHLY recommend this book for all teenagers and parents. It is very powerful and truly inspirational.
