Looking for the Chinese version of Chasing the Dragon

Amazing and inspiring book!! I have attended her gatherings in HK, she still preaches to each and every one of us "Go Out and serve!" I am looking for a copy (copies) of the Chinese version of Chasing the Dragon. Please help if you can. Thank you. PTL


Jackie Pullinger writes a very different story than most you will hear. Very interesting, and with many lessons. I highly recommend it!

Life Changing

In August 1993, my wife and I moved to Hong Kong. We had briefly heard Jackie speak at a meeting in nearby Taiwan several years earlier and God stirred our hearts. So, we decided to attend the church she was pastoring at the time. As stout evangelical Christians, we had so many walls built up around us...about worshiping freely, speaking in tounges, women pastors, supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit, etc. But I picked up her book at a local English bookstore and started reading. Her story was enough pique my interest beyond my personal spiritual hang-ups. I've never been the same again. We watched Jackie and the brothers for months- worshipping and living in community, feeding the poor, healing the sick- just like we read about in the Bible. God broke down our walls on all of the above and allowed us to enter into a place of true freedom for the first time since becoming believers. We've seen addicts come off of drugs with prayer alone. We now have a deeper compassion for the poor, lost and broken that moves us to action rather than apathy and guilt. I read about 1 book a year as the Lord leads, and this is one that changed the course of our lives.

God's Grace Poured into a Willing Vessel

I read "Chasing the Dragon" about 16 years ago and then I went . I saw first hand the spirit of the contents of this book and what was written between the lines. It is about having "hard feet and a soft heart" that is what Jackie always says. It is a wonderful story of a place of concentrated darkness and in that 6 acre place more people's lives were touched with God's love and grace, more lives changed and brought to Him than any other 6 acres in all of Hong Kong. It is where darkness and light clashed and the miracles happenned. It's God's grace and love at work in the midst of broken despised people.

We think we're sold out for Christ until we meet Jackie

This book is very convicting. The book allowed me to follow her into humanity's sewer system - by herself without money or support but with loads of belief in the life-changing power of Jesus Christ.Jackie inspires me by her example. "And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'(Matthew 25:40)My thanks go to Jackie for walking the walk.

Great story.

Chasing the Dragon is well-written and fast-paced, and offers a little of everything: cops, robbers, farce, trajedy, an argument or two, and most of all, lives changed by the Gospel. Jackie has led a remarkable life, but wears her experience lightly, with a sense of humor. Having lived in Hong Kong, visited her church and known people who worked with her or become Christians through her ministry, the book was especially interesting to me. I once traveled around Asia to do research on forced prostitution and AIDs. I hope others will follow her example, in the leading of the Holy Spirit, because there is a great need. In my opinion, this kind of ministry may be one of the key cross-cultural evangelistic outreaches of our time, and this book would be valuable to anyone trying to understand either the past or the future of missions. Many of the most successful Asian evangelists I have met were once drug addicts or criminals. This book might also be a good book to give to a non-Christian friend or to a Christian police officer who has become cynical and forgotten how God can change lives.One caution: I think readers should beware of a "one-size-fits-all" attempts to emulate the exact ways in which God's spirit works in other peoples' ministries. Jesus should be the pattern for all of us. But like he said, "The fields are ripe to the harvest. Pray the Lord of the Harvest to send out workers."Author, True Son of Heaven: How Jesus Fulfills the Chinese Culture (

Jesus the Dragon Slayer

This is an amazing book. Jackie describes how she lives purely by faith, not supported by any missionary society or church, and works fulltime amongst the poorest of the poor and the most wicked of the wicked in the ancient Walled City of Hong Kong. Jackie's ministry is to the drug addicts who "chase the dragon" and the Holy Spirit comes with power and healing to rescue them. Jesus is the Dragon Slayer!I am a Christian Psychologist and I have recently applied to work as a Prison Chaplain. I think God directed me to read this book so that I would know that the Holy Spirit is wanting to help the drug addicts in Australian prisons too.
