The Cross & the Switchblade

Pentecostal evangelist David Wilkerson has died in a traffic accident. Years ago I read both his famous book, The Cross and the Switchblade–as well as the famous book, Run Baby Run, by his famous convert Nicky Cruz,

This would actually make a useful study in synoptic variants and harmonization. Both books cover much the same ground. Both books are cross-referential. Yet, as I recall, they have far less in common than John’s gospel and the synoptic gospels–much less between one synoptic gospel and another.

At the same time, there’s no antecedent reason to think either record is inaccurate on that account.
