Lies We Believe About God
By - Wm. Paul Young 

------------------------------ About the Book -----------------------------
From the author of the twenty million plus copy bestselling novel The Shack and the New York Times bestsellers Cross Roads and Eve comes a compelling, conversational exploration of the wrong-headed ideas we sometimes have and share about God.
Wm. Paul Young has been called a heretic for the ways he vividly portrays God’s love through his novels. Here he shares twenty-eight commonly uttered and sometimes seemingly innocuous things we say about God. Paul exposes these as lies that keep us from having a full, loving relationship with our Creator.
With personal anecdotes and sharing the compassion readers felt from the “Papa” portrayed in The Shack—soon to be a major film starring Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer—Paul encourages readers to think anew about important issues including sin, religion, hell, politics, identity, creation, human rights, and helping us discover God’s deep and abiding love.
---------------------------- About the Author ----------------------------
William Paul Young was born in Canada and raised among a Stone Age tribe by his missionary parents in the highlands of former New Guinea. He suffered great loss as a child and young adult and now enjoys the “wastefulness of grace” with his family in the Pacific Northwest. He is the author of New York Times bestsellers, The Shack and Cross Roads.

Captain Amarinder Singh: 
The People's Maharaja 
An Authorized Biography

By - Khushwant Singh  

About the book
An authentic, definitive and no‐holds‐barred narrative – packed with fascinating incidents and anecdotes – that brings alive the life and times of one of the most prominent and striking individuals (a former royal) in the sphere of Punjab politics.
Beginning with a historical background of how the Patiala kingdom came to be established and ruled over the centuries, the author moves on to describe the early years of Amarinder Singh (a scion of that kingdom). He then portrays the Indo‒Pak war zone of 1965 (where the protagonist earned his spurs) and finally focuses on the combative arenas of Punjab politics, where numerous electoral and other battles have been (and continue to be) fought.
This informative work unravels the subterfuges of politicians and others (including religious leaders) in trying to ensure their dominance. The pages reveal behind‐the‐scenes intrigues, plots and counter‐plots even as Punjab was in the vice‐like grip of terrorism in the late twentieth century. Operation Bluestar (June 1984) and its consequences have been objectively recorded.
Besides tracing the career graph of Amarinder Singh, who reached his pinnacle when he became the chief minister of Punjab in February 2002, the author provides useful insights into crucial events that have made an immense impact on that state and the neighbouring areas over the past few decades. The text also throws light on Amarinder Singh’s five‐year tenure as chief minister (marked by both positive and negative aspects) and on the following period, when Parkash Singh Badal regained that post. The contents are rounded off with an update on the Punjab situation even as all the political parties in the state are gearing up for the rough and tumble of the forthcoming assembly elections in early 2017. Through this book, Khushwant Singh highlights those factors that set apart Amarinder Singh from his adversaries, besides taking an occasional peek into his private life and idiosyncrasies. Here’s a saga that records history in the making in Punjab.

About the Author
Khushwant Singh is the author of three books: the bestselling Sikhs Unlimited (2007), a travelogue featuring extraordinary Sikhs; the gripping Turbaned Tornado: The Oldest Marathon Runner Fauja Singh (2011) and the widely acclaimed novel Maharaja in Denims (2014), a story set in Chandigarh. Khushwant Singh’s works on the Punjabi, especially Sikh, diaspora are used extensively as research material by Western universities. His column, ‘Punjabi by Nature’ in the Hindustan Times (Chandigarh), has a huge readership, earning him the title of ‘a chronicler of stories of contemporary Punjab’. He lives in Chandigarh with his family.
