About this deal

Then into that culture comes Jackie Pullinger who seems to be the least likely person to help these people .

Here she mentions in a single sentence, out of the blue, that she was part of the Hong Kong Philharmonic for two years. Though the book is short, it's packed with story after story, so much that I found it overwhelming, and it definitely would benefit from being read over time. Jackie Pullinger, an English single missionary and her incredible journey in bringing the light of Christ to the drug infested areas of Hong Kong. She lived and worked in Kowloon's notorious 'Walled City' and by 1981 she had set up the St Stephen's Society, which provides rehabilitation homes for recovering drug addicts, prostitutes, and gang members.

Between two crimes lie decades of secrets yet to be unearthed in a pulse-pounding novel by the Edgar Award-nominated author of Unspeakable Things. It’s reminiscent of the many rags-to-riches stories of immigrants who left their countries to seek wealth except her riches are in the Kingdom of Heaven. Pullinger's autobiography of her ministry in Hong Kong's walled city of Kowloon inspires, challenges, and captivates. This is a remarkable and exciting book, filled with episodes of adventure, intrigue, crime, unspeakable cruelty and violence. Some of these pieces have never been seen; others have been read by millions of people around the world.

Jackie’s mission to just share Jesus’s love and not shy away from that, her being very direct was inspiring. The scarf that has been all over the news, belonging to a dead young woman with honey-coloured hair. The disadvantage of short-term missions is a wrong perspective based on this generation's need for instant results.

The experience of reading this was similar to reading The Glass Castle or Educated in that it felt so disconnected from my privileged life.

This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other infamous strategists. BUT very early in the book I saw a wonderful attitude that would transform us all if we adopted it . We love our people whether they turned out well or not, and the successes do not vindicate our ministry nor do the disappointments nullify it. Each had his fascinating story, and all, without exception, came off heroin without pain and trauma. Their faith did not depend on theological concepts but on seeing Jesus working in others and on their willingness to let Him work in their lives.

The 48 Laws of Power will fascinate any listener interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control. Chasing the Dragon is also a chronicle of the amazing work of the Holy Spirit in healing bodies, teaching minds, saving souls and changing the lives of individuals, communities and deprived and depraved societies. 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.
