Book Review : Mercy Triumphs

Mercy Triumphs is the third book in Jana Kelley’s debut series.  While I have not read the first two books, I really enjoyed the third book.


Jana has some great insight after living in Africa and the Middle East for the past 13 years, to bring to her stories to make them authentic.  While reading Mercy Triumphs I felt like the characters were people that Jana has met on her journeys.  I also felt like she was detailing places that she knew and had visited.

The story of these ladies : Mia, Halimah, and Rania is one that will draw you in and keep you until the last page.  Reading about the persecution that goes on, even within families is something we should all do, so that we can understand what is going on and pray for those families as well as support them.

I enjoyed this story, there was not anything that I would not want my boys to read about, and I hope they both read this book, to learn more about the culture of other religions.  Jana wrote a great story and I highly recommend her book, I look forward to getting my hands on the first two so I can read those as well!!

NOTE : I was offered a copy of Mercy Triumphs at no cost.

More about Mercy Triumphs :

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.
