Walled City was a lawless place, dominated by the Triads. Drug smuggling and heroin addiction flourished. It was a place of prostitution and pornography, extortion and fear. When Jackie Pullinger set out from England, she spoke of Jesus Christ and Jackie discovered a new treatment for drug addiction: baptism in the Holy Spirit.
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. It was a place of prostitution and pornography, extortion and fear. When Jackie Pullinger set out from England, 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. This new edition marks the 21st anniversary of this phenomenal bestseller, which has sold more than a quarter of a million copies around the world.
