Publisher's Description

What happens to a person who truly receives the mercy of God?


Overview


Mercy has been defined as kindness in excess of what may be expected by fairness. If God had been only fair and just with each of us, where would we be? But is there a harshness in God s mercy like a doctor s frank diagnosis that precedes healing? Are there conditions for receiving God s mercy? Why do so many people refuse it? What happens to a person who truly receives the mercy of God?
