Publisher's 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.

Amazing truth and power

I have often picked books like this up to read only to find it hard slog to get through the jjargon and over spiritualised description and thus I dont reach the end. listening to audio has helped as Im not the best reader, but also this book is very wrll written and continues the stories within with good pace while doing much justice to the Holy Spirit, Jesus and God the Father. thank you for making this available.

The power of Jesus

Such an amazing testimony of how by the power of Jesus, people with no hope or future and many trapped by addiction, can find healing and breakthrough. All because of the obedience of one amazing woman of the Lord.

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!

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.
