This is the story of David Wilkerson, the man who believed against the odds that God could do great things in the rejected and ignored of New York City, who refused to give up on those on the streets even when they had given up on themselves, and who saw in the eyes of the drug addicts and gang members what others failed to see—the love of Jesus Christ. But who was David Wilkerson? Many Christians don’t really know. More often than not, we saw the fruit of his faith in God rather than the man himself. When Wilkerson moved to New York from rural Pennsylvania in 1958 to confront the gangs who ran the streets, he was a skinny, 120-pound man. After the initial publicity that brought him face to face with some of the most dangerous young men of the city, he largely flew under the radar of the media, using the Word of God and a bit of tough love to help men and women of the street escape the destructive spiral of drugs and violence. Wilkerson was always the real deal, full of passion and conviction, not interested in what others said was the “right” or political thing to do. Wilkerson later founded the Times Square Church, now a non-denominational mega-church of 8,000 members, to this day a crossroads for those battling sin, drugs, and pornography, and a place where the message of Christ is discussed. He created the faith-based program Teen Challenge to wean addicts off drugs, and then World Challenge, dedicated since its beginning to promoting and spreading the Gospel throughout the world. Both now have branches worldwide, continuing the work that God began in the life of one man who believed David Wilkerson was a man of faith who trusted God would give him what he needed to enter a world of crime and killing. He was a man of conviction who took the dream God gave him and marched forward without ever looking back. And he was a man of vision who could not be shaken from his beliefs—sometimes even when counseled otherwise. David Wilkerson was the preacher of New York City.

What does Jesus mean when he asks us to count the costs of serving him? Gary and Bonnie Witherall, a vibrant young couple, were called by God to love the people of Lebanon. Willingly obeying that call, Bonnie gave herself to loving and serving impoverished Palestinian women at a clinic for the poor in Sidon--and lost her life as a modern martyr for Jesus Christ. This is Gary's story of their love, their commitment to Jesus' great commission, and their lasting legacy: a powerful challenge to live a life totally abandoned to God. Includes a photo insert and excerpts from Bonnie Witherall's personal journal.

Inside Hong Kong was the infamous Walled City. Strangers were not welcome there. Police hesitated to enter. It was a haven of filth, crime, and sin. Prostitution, pornography, and drug addiction flourished. Jackie Pullinger had grown up believing that if she put her trust in God, He would lead her. When she was twenty years old, God called her to the Walled City. She obeyed. And as she spoke of Jesus Christ, brutal hoods were converted, prostitutes retired from their trade, and heroin junkies found new power that freed them from the bondage of drug addiction. Hundreds discovered new life in Christ. Chasing the Dragon tells the whole amazing story exactly as it happened. Equally amazing has been the reach of this ministry, now detailed in this updated and revised edition. 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. Stephen's Society. Readers will be inspired by this tale of trust and loving like Jesus.

In these uncertain times, will we be gripped by fear, or will we understand how to truly live in the freedom of God's command to "fear not"? Pastor Carter Conlon exposes the tactics of Satan, who attempts to wield his weapon of fear, as well as the destructive outcomes of a life led by fear. Then, through biblical and practical examples, Conlon reveals that God offers His people a different spirit--one of power, love, and a sound mind. This is fully realized as we choose to follow God, face our enemies in God's power, and allow God's love for us to be manifested in a love for one another. It is this perfect love that will cast out all fear.
