Crack in the Wall : The Life and Death of Kowloon Walled City. This book is a tribute to the work in the 1990's prior to the walled city coming down. It's about a historical zoning glich that built a dead end community of suffering and addiction. Through faith they come out into freedom

Crack in the Wall : The Life and Death of Kowloon Walled City. Through faith they come out into freedom. It is the revelation of Christ coupled with the care in the Society of Stephen workers that leads them from gangs,drugs and death to purpose and joy. It is a mind blowing piece to read.

It describes some of the most incredible stories of people she helped through the Holy Spirit. Today, the drug addicts who came off heroin painlessly are ministering to others. They go out from Hang Fook camp, "Camp of the Blessing", to families, street sleepers and back to the Walled City where those on drugs come to find Jesus.

City of Darkness : Life in Kowloon Walled City, by Greg Girard and Ian Lambot. Hong Kong : Watermark Publications (UK) Limited, 1993. To capture the flavour of the Walled City on the printed page has been an interesting challenge. Its density, its unexpectedness, its smells, its sounds and changing textures are difficult, if not impossible, to convey.

I used to be a flight attendant and traveled to Hong Kong for many years. This book is about the forgotten people of Hong Kong: the drug addicts, Triad members, and prostitutes, that make up the underbelly of this amazing city. It is a book about human degradation and subsequent redemption through the healing & transformation power of God. It is not a travelogue. It is not merely a picture-book or coffee-table book, although many of the pictures accurately depict Kowloon as it was when I traveled there. In fact, I am truly astonished that there are so many negative reviews - did the reviewers NOT read the description of the book's content? I have the greatest respect for Jackie Pullinger and what she & her team have accomplished amongst the poorest of the poor. I had the pleasure of meeting her a number of hears later when she visited my Church - Jackie Pullinger is the real deal, and this is the real story of lives transformed because one woman decided to make a difference.

While involved with a much smaller missionary project practically right in my own back yard (a man with severe dependencies and hyper mania who would easily and regularly go 10 days without sleep), my wife kept telling me I needed to read "Chasing the Dragon". She was right, I did! Chasing the Dragon gave me hope to persevere so that now we see reasons for rejoicing and I have a new good brother in the Lord.
When I heard about "Crack in the Wall", I just had to have it. Crack in the Wall is the perfect complement to Chasing the Dragon especially for those who appreciate visual input.
One important thing Chasing the Dragon did for me was to make me more bold in speaking out about the benefits of the gift of tongues and praying in the spirit that way. I have friends that are pushy about tongues. If it wasn't for their pushiness, I might have never received it. While still not quite as pushy as my friends, Chasing the Dragon has impressed upon me how important it is to share the value the gift of tongues can have. It is kind of like watching a loved one fight a battle with sticks and stones. They are quite comfortable with their sticks and stones being unaware of superior fire power easily available to them. Even when made aware they are still reluctant until they get to personally experience the difference. The problem with tongues is that you can't personally experience it until the gift is yours and utilized. You can hear all about it, but somehow skepticism remains. Chasing the Dragon should be an eye opener, causing everyone who has a personal relationship with our Lord Jesus, to desire this gift all the more. Thank you Jackie! And now with Crack in the Wall actually letting you see the faces and the places that Chasing the Dragon took place, makes it even more real. I'm very grateful I could acquire a copy of Crack in the Wall.
