I respect David Wilkerson and his ministry. This book is a written elucidation of a prophetic "vision" he apparently had in the summer of 1973. I first read this book in the late 70's and have read it more than 5 times since. I am sure Rev. Wilkerson's vision was real, but I am uncertain as to whether the book is a real reflection of exactly what his vision showed him. The book contains alot of commentary and (in my opinion)is more an exposition of Rev. Wilkerson world view as opposed to a liter ...more

Interesting! David Wilkerson in my opinion was a modern day prophet.

An awesome and very sobering book, especially as the events he's prophesied are happening now!

I believe this is the most important book I've ever reviewed outside of Bibles.

The Vision and Beyond, Prophecies Fulfilled and Still to Come, by David Wilkerson, 1974—reprinted 2003, World Challenge Publications, 143 Pages, $5.00

I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t eager to know what the future holds, yet the Bible warns believers away from psychics, mediums and others who foretell the future. However, God did send prophets in the past, such as Ezekiel, Jeremiah and Jonah to prophesy about or warn o

I thought this was an excellent book. I read it back in the early 80's and it was written back in the 60's or 70's about future times, and the things are starting to happen or have happened. Very good!

This book is a very good teaching, it clearly shows that the only way you can be in a better position is to trust God. Without trusting Him, you will very much fail.
The last chapter is also something to deeply think about

This book is about what is coming. It was shown to the author in a vision and he wrote a book about it.

Just amazing, I have no words to describe how I felt while I was reading this book
Arlee Bird
David Wilkerson's CROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE is a classic of Christian evangelical literature, however this author holds a more dubious position for many analysts of Christian prophetic literature. THE VISION is mostly an artifact of Christian writing, more a matter of curiosity than a basis for real prophecy.

This book was first published over forty years ago. The prophecies described are essentially what can be found in the Bible and predictions that have been discussed by numerous other Christ

Although David Wilkerson is a personal hero of mine, I can no longer agree with his views of God constantly being about to destroy the world because of it's evil. Wilkerson was as sincere as you can get in his beliefs. I used to read his sermons regularly as a teenager. I have a lot of them saved. Looking back, David's influence really helped me in some ways and really hurt me in others.

Most of this book would be the latter-its influence had a very negative impact on my spiritual life. It certa

Vitun uskovaiset.
Tämä oli kyllä yksi hassuimmista ja eniten ääneen mut nauramaan saaneista kirjoista, mutta silti kävi ahdistamaan kävi tuo pohjaton ahdasmielisyys.
Ilmeisesti maailma sellaisena kuin me sen tunnemme loppuu n. huomenna, sillä Wilkersonin ennusmerkeistä puuttuu enää yxi: kaduilla kulkevat rajut homoseksualistijoukot, jotka raiskaavat kaikki vastaantulijat. Talouden epätasapaino, alastomuus televisiossa ja rajut luonnonilmiöt ovat jo tulleet.
David Wilkerson, ääliö.

Strange that a so called vision understates what's already available by common sense and argued by philosophy and science. The dogmatic and judging tone make this book unappealing for non-christianic readers. It's also weird that the author doesn't describe what one can do about climate change or social issues except for following the holy word blindly. One star though for reminding readers that times are-a-changing.

This book was originally published in 1977. At the time of it's first publishing, it was controversial to many. Some even labeled Brother Wilkerson as a "sensationalist" and dismissed his writings here in this book. Many of the things predicted have now come to pass...it will now raise the hair on the back of your neck! I DARE YOU TO READ IT!
