Macro Friday & An Awesome Book

033
If you haven't read this book - Chasing the Dragon - you don't know what you are missing. It's probably the best book I've ever read! So many miracles were performed throughout this book, just through the work of one woman and the prayers of thousands. This book is simply amazing! Jackie Pullinger started the St. Stephen Society. I'm going to type the description that is on the back of the book for you. 

A Tough, Honest Account of One Woman's Dedication and Courage.

Inside the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong lies the infamous Walled City. Strangers are not welcome there. Police hesitate to enter. It is a haven of filth, crime, and sin. Prostitution, pornography, and drug addiction flourish. Thirty thousand people -- maybe twice that -- live in a few cramped dismal acres. 

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 she spoke of Jesus Christ, brutal hoods were converted, prostitutes retired from there trade, and heroin junkies found a new power that freed them from the bondage of drug addiction. Hundreds discovered new life in Christ. 

Chasing the Dragon tells the whole story -- exactly as it happened.  

Jackie Pullinger said, "We must have hard feet and soft hearts."
