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: This book was an excellent conclusion to the series! I enjoyed how the characters continued to grow as they put their trust in the Lord, even when it was hard. I especially appreciated how they had to learn to have faith even when it looked like they were taking the harder option. I also really appreciate the battle that Mia goes through in the end, since there is an excellent message there for every reader. This is a wonderful series that I highly recommend!
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
