Description

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.

Reviews

'Truly inspiring ... a wonderful book.' -- Nicky Gumbel, Holy Trinity Brompton 'Jackie Pullinger has helped to turn a city around and has saved lives, all because of the compassion that she's received from Jesus. She is clear and straight up in the way that only someone who is actually doing what she says can be.' -- Mike Pilavachi 'One of the most dramatic Christian autobiographies ever published' -- Church of England Newspaper 'Anyone less likely to go tripping into the vice dens of the notorious Walled City could not be found. Maybe her ignorance saved her ... or her courage.' -- Daily Mail 'A book to stop you in your tracks.' -- Liverpool Daily Post
