FORMER GANG LEADER NICKY CRUZ PENS NEW TITLE,
THE DEVIL HAS NO MOTHER—A FOLLOW-UP TO HIS 1988 BREAKOUT HIT, RUN BABY RUN
25 YEARS AFTER HIS LAST BESTSELLER CRUZ IS BACK ENCOURAGING CHRISTIANS TO BE BOLD IN THE FACE OF EVIL
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – April 25, 2013— Nicky Cruz knows all about the power of the devil.
“This guy has no mother” is an old Spanish saying used to refer to boys who seem bent on evil and destruction. I remember it well from my childhood in Puerto Rico, because people would often use it when referring to me. –Nicky Cruz, The Devil Has No Mother
From a spiritualist childhood in Puerto Rico to the gang culture in New York to an international Christian ministry, Nicky Cruz has seen humanity at its best and its worst. In his new book The Devil Has No Mother (Worthy Publishing, July 2013, $14.99, 9781617951893), Cruz draws on these early experiences and many others from his evangelistic ministry to drive home the reality of the devil’s no-holds-barred attempts to gain power over individuals and communities. This former gang leader also shows clearly why God, not the devil, will win! The Devil Has No Mother contains story after story of the reality of spiritual warfare and draws on New Testament teaching to show why Christians need to be bold in the face of evil.
Nicky Cruz has traveled widely around the world, speaking to hurting people in all walks of life, in the 40 years that have passed since he came to Christ in New York through the selfless devotion of David Wilkerson. Nicky’s ministry has reached thousands of inner-city gang members as he speaks to their need from his own experience. His ministry regularly targets urban environments in order to reach those who are most frequently trapped by destructive lifestyles and caught in a downward spiral of intense violence, drug abuse and gang activity.
