I know this i off topic but if anyone wants to know, if any one did read any of his books..or read his messages.  

David Wilkerson, author of The Cross and the Switchblade and founder of World Challenge Ministries, died in a car crash today, Charisma and CBN are reporting. CBN reports that Wilkerson, 79, was driving and was pronounced dead at the scene.


Wilkerson was driving east on U.S. 175 in Texas Wednesday afternoon, and moved into the opposite lane where a tractor trailer was driving westbound. The truck driver saw the car and tried to move out of the way, but still collided with the pastor's car head on, according to Public Safety Trooper Eric Long.

It's unclear what caused Wilkerson to veer into the other lane. His wife Gwen was also involved in the crash and rushed to the hospital, along with the truck driver.

The church that he founded, Times Square Church in New York City, has more than 8,000 members.

He was an amazing man of God. He spoke many years ago in my church (twice actually). His books are very good. I re-read "The Vision" last year. It is out of print but I was able to obtain an old copy of it. It made my hair stand on end as a lot of the prophecies have come to pass. He will be missed.

The author (artist) who benefits you most is not the one who tells you something you did not know before, but the one who gives expression to the truth that has been dumbly struggling in you for utterance.
