Mercy Triumphs

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.

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.

My Thoughts:
I have so enjoyed this series by Jana Kelley!  Mercy Triumphs is the third book in Kelley's  series.  The previous two books were Door to Freedom and Side by Side. Kelley gives readers a bird's eye view of life in Sudan and surrounding areas. Readers also get a peek into missionary life as well.  The stories of Halimah, Rania, and Mia are challenging but encouraging at the same time as readers follow their journey with God.  This last book moved a little slower than the previous two.  I also am curious about a couple of places where Kelley seems to use Allah and God interchangeably as if they are one and the same.  In the end, readers will be encouraged and inspired.
*I received a complimentary copy of the book.  All opinions are my own.
