Summary

One woman's struggle against the darkness of Hong Kong's drug dens.

Until it was pulled down, the Walled City was Hong Kong's most foreboding territory. It was a lawless place, dominated by the Triads, and which the police hesitated to enter. Strangers were unwelcome. Drug smuggling and heroin addiction flourished, as did prostitution and pornography, extortion and fear. 

When Jackie Pullinger set sail from England in 1966 she had no idea that God was calling her to the Walled City. Yet, as she spoke of Jesus Christ, brutal Triad gangsters were converted, prostitutes quit, and Jackie discovered a new treatment for drug addiction: baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Life changing book

This was a life changing book. It totally changed my ministry. I want to be Spirit led, to seek the hurting, to find and ask for God's healing. I love the Lord all the more for it because reading it cracked open parts of my heart that were closed.

Oh to be so close to God

What an awe inspiring story and I am motivated to find the courage to have the faith to even do half of what she did in my own back yard would be amazing. Well written, easy to listen to. I found driving to work has become a great time to listen to my audible books and I arrive at work inspired and ready for the day. Thank you for sharing your story!
