The Cross and the Switchblade

By David Wilkerson


“Darlene’s story set during WWII Indonesia will rivet you. It will build your faith. It will give you hope. This book is a relevant read in the uncertain days we live in. You will find yourself crying and then cheering with Darlene as she relies on the most certain Jesus Christ and His Word. I believe this book will equip you for anything that comes our way.”


Newlywed American misionary Darlene Deibler Rose survived four years in a notorious Japanese prison camp set deep in the jungles of New Guinea. Thinking she was never to see her husband again, Darelene was forced to sign a false confession and face the executioner’s sword, only to be miraculously spared in this true story of one woman’s survival against the odds.
