Long before faith-based films became a regular feature of mainstream movie theaters, there was, The Cross and The Switchblade. The film was made squarely within the Hollywood system yet, was set apart by the unashamedly Christian vision of its producers. It went on to become a worldwide ministry phenomenon and it stands among the early sparks that ignited today’s growing Christian film movement.
Although this 1970 film bears the style of a different era, the life-changing solution that David Wilkerson brought to desperate lives remains forever relevant. And fifty years later, the film, for all its retro elements, still stands up to scrutiny as a well-written, stylishly produced movie featuring sincerely passionate performances.
Make plans to join us on Thursday, November 19 at 8 pm ET/ 7 pm CT for a special presentation of The Cross and the Switchblade.
