Chasing the Dragon: One Woman's Struggle Against the Darkness of Hong Kong's Drug Dens by Jackie Pullinger, Andrew Quicke

Inside Hong Kong was the infamous Walled City. Strangers were not welcome there. Police hesitated to enter. It was a haven of filth, crime, and sin. Prostitution, pornography, and drug addiction flourished. Jackie Pullinger had grown up believing that if she put her trust in God, He would lead her. When she was twenty years old, God called her to the Walled City. She obeyed. And as she spoke of Jesus Christ, brutal hoods were converted, prostitutes retired from their trade, and heroin junkies found new power that freed them from the bondage of drug addiction. Hundreds discovered new life in Christ. Chasing the Dragon tells the whole amazing story exactly as it happened. Equally amazing has been the reach of this ministry, now detailed in this updated and revised edition. From Hong Kong to the Philippines, Thailand, and beyond, the ministry that started with Jackie and her friends taking people in to live and care for them has continued and developed to form the present St. Stephen's Society. Readers will be inspired by this tale of trust and loving like Jesus.

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.

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!
