The book allowed me to follow Jackie into humanity's sewer system all by herself without money or support but with loads of belief in the life-saving, changing power of God our Jesus Christ. Jackie inspires me by her example. 'And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'(Matthew 25:40) My thanks go to Jackie for walking the walk.

This book reveals what true Christianity looks like.

This is a life-changing book. I didn't think it was particularly good until I got past the first fifteen chapters, which were straight-forward, one-dimensional chronological accounts of the author's work in the former Kowloon Walled-City. Then sixteen and seventeen came and they were in a league of their own.Certainly not everyone's cup of tea. But for anyone curious about a literally and metaphorically dark chapter of Hong Kong, do give this one a try. It's not a book to be taken lightly.

Top 5 best books I've read on missions! Largely because it is a contemporary example. Ms. Pullinger's ministry isn't a historical relic; she is still alive and her ministry is still going on TODAY exactly as she wrote in this book! Also, it's very clear that the reason why she failed initially in her ministry is because she didn't have the POWER which comes from the Pentecost baptism of the Holy Spirit. So a very real example that is simple and cuts through a lot of the theological confusion of the day. The book is also very well-written, easy and enjoyable to read. May the Lord raise up an army of us to live like this!
