Mercy Triumphs by Jana Kelley

 Three women. Three impossible circumstances. One merciful God.
Mia, an American Christian, has lived in Sudan so long that persecution, harassment, and danger have become commonplace for her. Her tough outer shell threatens to harden her heart while her newly Christian friends, Halimah and Rania, former Muslims, are forced to live in exile outside Sudan. All three quickly discover that escaping danger in one place only means facing even
greater challenges elsewhere. As God’s mercy becomes evident in their lives, they must choose whether or not to offer mercy to those who don’t deserve it.
Third in a trilogy, Mercy Triumphs opens the reader’s eyes to modern-day persecution and the life of Muslims in Sudan. Based on real-life events, Mercy Triumphs reveals some of the struggles Christians face when living under Islamic law. The reader will be inspired to pray for new believers, those who are persecuted for their faith, and even for the salvation of the persecutors.

Where to Purchase

Meet the Author:

Author of the captivating novel Side by Side, Jana Kelley is a Texan who hardly ever lives in Texas. Raised in Southeast Asia, Jana developed a love for cross-cultural living early in life. Her love for writing came soon after. Jana returned to Texas to attend East Texas Baptist University. She and her husband married a month after she graduated, and by their second anniversary, they were living in a remote African town. After 13 years living in Africa and the Middle East, Jana, her husband, and their three boys moved to Southeast Asia where they currently live.

My Take:

I was so excited to be getting book three in this series. And although each book is a stand alone, I highly recommend you read them all! Once you read one, you will be so moved, you'll want to read the others anyhow. 

What I loved most about this book is the real feel. Jana does such a great job of describing the place and writing the story, you feel like you are really there. You feel the fear, the danger, and you struggle with your faith. But your faith also grows as their faith grows. Each character, is special in their own way, I felt like I knew them personally. The three women, Mia, Halimah, and Rania each have different choices to make, struggles to deal with, and learning to trust God takes on a whole new meaning as their lives change. 

Faith is the same for all of us, but we all learn it through different tests. Persecution, harassment and just trials of everyday life in a Muslim country are portrayed well in this book, including some not so fun to read experiences. Yet, I feel like you will walk away with a greater love for the Lord, readiness to share Him with others, and love for the Muslim people. I know I did!

Please pick up a copy of all three books in this series to read. Your life will be changed.
