Christian persecution. Refugees. Muslims. Any of these three terms, most people on earth are aware of one or more of them. Did you realize how difficult it is for Muslims who convert from their faith to embrace the salvation of Jesus Christ instead? If they are immediately killed by their family members in order to retain the families honor in their own country, then they are immediate sought after by those who now have labeled them as "infidels" by their own religious standards. I have had the distinct pleasure to read all the novels by Jana Kelley, based on the true life events of three distinct women who now have to face the foundations of the Christian faith, even if it means being killed. From an American missionary wife and mother, Mia, to one Muslim sister, Halimah, on the run for her very life, and the other Rania, trying to keep her own faith from being discovered by her family, all the while trying to figure out how to get out of the rapidly approaching arranged marriage to a Muslim man. The stakes have never been higher as each of these women will have to face just how strong their Christian faith is while living in a Muslim population where there is no tolerance for those who are trying to convert others to the Christian beliefs. From Side by Side and then to Door to Freedom, Mercy Triumphs is the third novel that has documented the lifestyles of each of these women. From Mia who longs for someone to share her faith with, while trying to share her own testimony with those around her, without subjecting her family to violence, jail or being killed. She and her family are awaiting the approval of their passports to return home for a short while but they remain in the hands of one man who believes that Islam is the only religion. Halimah is faced with working in Nairobi after flying from her family who wanted to kill her. She desperately misses them and loves them but knows she can never return. She must be discreet if she contacts her sister Rania, who has been hiding her own newly found faith in Jesus. Perhaps the greatest reminder of what Christians in other countries face is the opening verse, "Mercy triumphs over judgement." James 2:13. This is the central theme of this novel. I received Mercy Triumphs by Jana Kelley compliments of New Hope Publishers and Litfuse Publicity. This is so eye opening to those of us that live in America where we still have the freedom to practice our own religious faiths and persecution for us, just might be harassment from co-workers, family or friends who don't agree with our own beliefs. This will not always be the case as we watch the slow erosion of our freedoms beginning to slip away without noticing it is happening. Meanwhile things like persecution of Christians in other countries remains a segment on the news if even they care to report it, but we know it is happening on a daily basis without anyone knowing it is happening. I have LOVED this entire series because it highlights just what it might mean to those who are willing to die for their beliefs might just be the ones we want to embrace the most, including those 12 disciples of Jesus Christ who while spreading God's messages to the world, suddenly found themselves being the first of those who would die for their faith in Jesus Christ. For me, I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars and hope others will find the message of hope, faith and mercy in this book.

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. I received my copy courtesy of Litfuse Publicity and New Hope. I was not asked to review this book positively, only to give my honest opinion.

Mia, Halimah, and Rania, an American and two Sudanese ladies, are the leading characters in this story. Mia, who is from Texas, lives in Khartoum. Halimah lives in Nairobi. Rania lives in Dubai. Their lives are intertwined because Halimah had lived with Mia and her family for a year after her father and brother beat her severely for becoming a believer in Jesus and her father disowned her. Rania is Halimah’s sister who has accepted Jesus and was able to move to Dubai for a year to study art and delay a forced marriage to a Muslim. All three find themselves in situations where they feel that time is running out on them and there are people they want to tell about Jesus. Unlike most places in America where people can talk openly about Jesus, they must be very cautious. In addition, Halimah is living under an assumed name to keep her family from finding her and possibly exacting further punishment on her. One particular conversation in the book should make every Christian think about what they are doing to reach others. Mia is talking with two of her friends in Texas and one of them asks her how many people has she converted in Sudan. When Mia tells her two, her friend seems to think she should have reached a lot more for Christ during her time there. Mia wants to ask her how many she has reached for Christ in the past year but she resists out of kindness. Actually there is much about this book that should make American Christians think. I recommend the book. The time spent reading it could be a life-changing experience. I received a complimentary copy of this book from New Hope Publishers. This is my honest review.
