As her husband, David, grew in prominence in public ministry, Gwen Wilkerson found herself waging war with formidable enemies on the home front. Readers who have been inspired by David's bestselling book, The Cross and the Switchblade, will be touched by the inside story Gwen presents-her struggles with depression, the ravages of cancer, and marital strife. Gwen takes readers on a journey of faith as she discovers firsthand that the power of God can conquer pain, disease, and heartache. In this expanded version of an earlier book, she gives hope to anyone confronting a difficult passage in life. As a tool for women in crisis, as well as for pastors, intercessors, and church leaders, this book offers more than coping skills; it teaches by experience how to abide in God's strength and actually see miracles take place. With simplicity, candor, and vulnerability, Gwen shows readers how to use suffering as a springboard for spiritual growth. No situation is so hopeless, no relationship so lost that the answer cannot be found by trusting in God's strength.

What's the rest of the story? While her husband was reaching out to lost souls among the street gangs of New York City, Gwen Wilkerson was fighting battles of her own. The wife of well-known inner-city preacher and author David Wilkerson, Gwen reveals a little-known side of the Wilkerson family as the reality of The Cross and the Switchblade played out in their lives. The Cross and the Scalpel chronicles Gwen's enduring faith in God through suffering, heartache and disease in herself and her daughters. Throughout every trial she found comfort and strength in God through prayer and Scripture. Now, at the urging of many, including her husband, she shares her story of faith and hope in the shadow of her husband's successful ministry. Gwen's remarkable perseverance and faith are an inspiration for everyone, especially those struggling with health or marital problems, or with trusting God when life becomes difficult.
