Jackie Pullinger had only ever been sure of one thing: when God calls, she follows. In her early twenties, she followed Him into the squalor found in Hong Kongs Walled City, an area of drug addiction, prostitution, murderous gangs, and hopelessness. Fearing the Lord would return before she could do any work for Him, Pullinger left England with a one-way ticket, a small sum of money, and no mission group backing her. She didnt know where God was calling her, but she managed to stumble into the Walled City via some other dedicated Christians. She set spiritual fire to the place.
A charismatic Christian, Pullinger witnessed, helped, befriended, loved with Christs love, and made mistakesineptly on her part, exactly right on Gods. And miracles happened. Drug addicts came to Jesus and were released from their addiction. Gang members and leaders thought Pullinger was crazy, but grew to love her and her Lord. These converts had nowhere to go but back into the Walled City and the opium dens in which they worked and slept. Pullinger and a small coterie of helpers, including some of the converted Walled City people, started the St. Stephens Society to help, house, teach, and lead. The many problems, depths of degradation, interference, and totally new ways faced by Pullinger boggle the mind. She solved them all the same way, by looking to the Lord and doing whatever was needed, no matter how weird, wild, or wonderful.
Pullinger follows in the footsteps of some other exciting Christian women. If youve read about Chinese missions prior to WWII, youve met the some. Most of them were Chinese, some from missionary countries, yet all of them were going out on foot in dangerous places to present the word, to love the people, and to live however the Lord directed. Perhaps youve read of Gladys Aylward, The Little Woman, who, with nothing in hand, left England before WWII and went to China to live for her Lord. Gladys Aylward and her more modern sister Jackie Pullinger are both wild hearts for God working among the Chinese peoples.
Chasing the Dragon is an exciting and challenging book. Beware: it is dangerous to your complacent Christian life style. Dont read it if you dont want to be set on fire for the Lord and have the use of your spiritual gifts thoroughly challenged. Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

Christians like Jackie Pullinger remind us that with God nothing is impossible. This book is a treasure, her story inspiring and yes, it is hard to read about the type of depravity that existed in the Walled City, but Jesus died for the drug addict and the prostitute too. Her story is valuable because drug addiction is still rampant in the walled city of our neighborhoods and we are the ones to give the message that set the captives free.
