In the 1800s American South, Harriet Jacobs is enslaved and tormented by a cruel master. Jacobs outwits her tormentor and works in the cause of abolition and reform, and helps newly freed slaves with education and aftercare. In 2012, Timothy Ballard encounters a grieving father in Haiti whose three-year-old son has been kidnapped and sold into slavery, along with thousands of children who were orphaned after an earthquake devastated the country. Inspired by Harriet Jacobs, Tim pledges to track down the missing child to establish Operation Underground Railroad.

Not only is this book exciting to listen to but the Fact that these are stories that are true in the last couple 100 years make the book inspiring and heartbreaking and motivational all at the same time. The underlying premise of the book, to serve and love your fellow man despite any unkindness and injustice is overwhelmingly powerful and brought tears to my eyes many times. Not only for the stories themselves but because of the implication in the role I need to play in spreading this kind of love and freedom.

When doctors gave him six months to live, John Pontius (author of Visions of Glory) created a blog to leave his testimony with his children. However, thousands of followers of UnBlog My Soul were touched. Share in the journey as Pontius expresses his love and understanding of the gospel in a clear, beautiful way. This audiobook compiles the most compelling blog entries and weaves the narrative of his journey to the veil.
