The Walled City has been demolished but Hong Kong's need for Jesus is as real as ever before.

With extra new material Jackie updates the story of her work in the infamous Walled City of Hong Kong, bringing God to the drug delaers, madams, prostiutes and the Triad gangsters who inhibaited this man made hell.

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. It was a place of prostitution and pornography, extortion and fear. When Jackie Pullinger set out from England, 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. This new edition marks the 21st anniversary of this phenomenal bestseller, which has sold more than a quarter of a million copies around the world.

From the Back Cover:

Inside of 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 20 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. Stephens Society. Prepare to be inspired by the testimony of a life given over to the poor and forgotten and the amazing blessings that resulted.
