In the months before Isaac's birth, Brother Yun was in prison. His mother was about to be forced into having an abortion, though seven months pregnant, because she was carrying the child of an enemy of the state. After desperate prayer, the night before she was due to go into a hospital for the operation, she miraculously gave birth.
Through careful, detailed consideration of a host of primary documents about the young activists who formed the Underground Railroad's underappreciated operational workforce, this book offers fresh insight to the complex question, "Who ended slavery?"
Back in print after nearly fifty years–the acclaimed fiction debut of novelist H. L. Humes, co-founder of The Paris Review “Immensely intelligent and energetic, intensely dramatic and melodramatic, heroically overwritten yet sharp, insightful, and precise, The Underground City is an astonishing book by a writer of abundant gifts whose resurrection is long overdue.” –Peter Matthiessen It is the late 1940s and Paris is in turmoil. A man named Dujardin is sentenced to death for treason, sparking general strikes and threats of riots across the city. In the meantime, John Stone, a war-weary American and former secret agent, finds himself being investigated as a suspected Communist. What has brought these two men to their fates? H.L. Humes spins a thrilling account of the French underground during the last years of World War II, and the events that lead to the Dujardin affair. His many memorable characters include Adriane, loved by both Stone and Carnot, a fanatic Communist; Bruce Sheppard, the American ambassador to France, a statesman of vision and compassion; and Solange Récamier, the sophisticated young Parisian widow who finds meaning in trying to salvage Stone’s broken life. The Underground City displays H.L. Humes’s youthful literary skill and a striking capacity for fast-paced narrative. This is a brilliant tour de force. “A major achievement . . . [The Underground City] attains its full stature in poetry and truth. . . . [This is a] many-sided, absorbing novel, written on a grand scale, that holds the reader’s attention from the first to the last of its many pages.” –New York Herald Tribune “Magnificent . . . [The Underground City] has verisimilitude and scope, action and depth of emotion.” –Chicago Tribune “A work of power, maturity and distinction.” –Newsweek

An investigative journalist uncovers a hidden custom in Afghanistan that will transform your understanding of what it means to grow up as a girl. In Afghanistan, a culture ruled almost entirely by men, the birth of a son is cause for celebration and the arrival of a daughter is often mourned as misfortune. A bacha posh (literally translated from Dari as “dressed up like a boy”) is a third kind of child--a girl temporarily raised as a boy and presented as such to the outside world. Jenny Nordberg, the reporter who broke the story of this phenomenon for the New York Times, constructs a powerful and moving account of those secretly living on the other side of a deeply segregated society where women have almost no rights and little freedom. The Underground Girls of Kabul is anchored by vivid characters who bring this remarkable story to life: Azita, a female parliamentarian who sees no other choice but to turn her fourth daughter Mehran into a boy; Zahra, the tomboy teenager who struggles with puberty and refuses her parents’ attempts to turn her back into a girl; Shukria, now a married mother of three after living for twenty years as a man; and Nader, who prays with Shahed, the undercover female police officer, as they both remain in male disguise as adults. At the heart of this emotional narrative is a new perspective on the extreme sacrifices of Afghan women and girls against the violent backdrop of America’s longest war. Divided into four parts, the book follows those born as the unwanted sex in Afghanistan, but who live as the socially favored gender through childhood and puberty, only to later be forced into marriage and childbirth. The Underground Girls of Kabul charts their dramatic life cycles, while examining our own history and the parallels to subversive actions of people who live under oppression everywhere.
The Public Private Partnership (PPP) for London Underground was signed on 31 December 2002 and two consortia look after the infrastructure of the Tube network on thirty-year contracts, which are reviewed every seven and a half years. The concern of the Committee is to monitor how the arrangements are working in practice and this report, with its evidence is part of that process. The subjects covered are: major works; performance; safety; London Underground's powers; ownership. On the evidence it has received the Committee doubts that the improvements in facilities and performance are in proportion to the sums of money flowing through the PPP.
The Father's Revelation of the Son will settle you in the Truth of God's love and in His intentions and purpose for the human race. In the book, you will encounter the Truth of His love. The Personal undertaking for our salvation by His Sacrifice on the Cross and His personal interest in us; by coming into our lives to teach us and guide us fulfilling all the desires of our Father as He prepares us for His Eternal Priesthood. Remember Jesus came into the world to sow the Seed of Godliness into the heart of man (Both male and Female Gen. 5:2) and for those who receive Him; He brings and presents them blameless on that Day. To those who endure with Him during His trials against evil and the oppositions to His Love in this world, He will reward eternally. Look into the life of David- though he was anointed King during the time of Saul's Reign- He did not cross the line but waited till the time appointed by the Father for his Throne. Therefore all those who were on David's side who labored and endured with him; he rewarded with positions and places of honor at the time of his inauguration and reign. Let us press on to know the Lord through the Father's revelation of the Son to obtain all He has prepared for us in the times of our generations. Rp

Tozer brings his powerful theology to life in this book, continually reminding the reader of the incredible grace of God and delivering memorable and provocative sayings, like "Everything is wrong until Jesus sets it right!" The whole of the Gospel narrative is spread throughout this book, each page bringing a new tenet of God's masterful plan of redemption, leaving the reader inspired to quietly do the will of God.
