Mercy Like Sunlight

Pub Date 18 Mar 2014
Who Will Set Her Free from the Darkness Inside?Mary Margaret Delaney hides in the shadows, her arms scarred, her heart wounded by grief and weighed down with regret. Adrift on the streets of Chicago, she is surrounded by strangers and hounded by demons, both real and imagined. Her neighbors in Lincoln Park call her Mad Mary—until a fearless young pastor dares to call Mary his friend.
Inspired by the biblical account of Mary Magdalene, this touching contemporary story first appeared in Liz’s nonfiction book, Mad Mary, later titled Unveiling Mary Magdalene. Now updated as a stand-alone novella, Mercy Like Sunlight is a powerful tribute to God’s boundless compassion and unending grace.
“I was deeply moved by the story of Pastor Jake and Mary Margaret Delaney. So well written. So challenging to me. So Christlike. And so Chicago!”
—Neta Jackson, best-selling author of The Yada Yada Prayer Group
“Irresistible, unconditional love shines through on each and every page!”
—Sharon Ewell Foster, Christy Award-winning author of Passing by Samaria
