Chasing the Dragon is a missionary biography that centres upon Hong Kong's most dangerous territory: the Walled City. Until it was demolished, the Walled City had forged a reputation as a lawless area where even police felt forbidden to enter. The area had become synonymous with drug dealing, prostitution, murder, blackmail and fear.
In 1966, Jackie Pullinger set sail from Britain with little inclination that she would be 'called' by God to the Walled City. Jackie Pullinger's missionary autobiography tells of how her strong faith encouraged brutal Triad gangsters to convert, prostitutes to quit, and drug addicts to clean up. "Chasing The Dragon" is a testament to selfless commitment and human kindness towards others.
'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, Soul Survivor
'One of the most dramatic Christian autobiographies ever published' - Church of England Newspaper
