|Plot Summary of How To Fight Back|
|"The best-seller 'Run, Baby, Run' tells the life of Nicky Cruz as a switchblade-wielding gang leader in the slums of New York, who found Jesus through the preacher David Wilkerson (a story also told in 'The Cross and the Switchblade'). In this book, published in 1991, he tells of his more recent experiences, preaching and evangelising in America and Europe. He details the personal tragedies and triumphs of many young people and families, who wrestle with drugs, violence, rape, and abuse both within and without the church. His theme is how to fight back against the alienation so many experience in the modern world, but with practical love and turning the other cheek, not physical weapons."
