Author: Michael Cartwright
Great Mercy is a book of modern day parables for today’s Christian. I was very excited to know that this book was being published as I’ve known the author for many years now and am blessed daily by his Soul Snacks.
When I started reading it, I was instantly reminded of Pilgrims Progress.
This 115 page book is set up in 3 easy to read sections.
This book reminds us of the value of a true relationship with the Lord as it discusses how the characters “Ritual, Righteousness, Pride, Good-works and others” are main players in today’s Christianity.
This book would be perfect for small groups or any group discussion setting as well as a personal devotional that reminds you to take a deep look at your own heart. There are questions provided for you that can be discussed or the leader of the group can add their own.
You’ll want to read this book slowly and deliberately so that you can examine your heart for the Lord as you build your personal relationship.
So many people try to get God to love them by following all of the rules and doing good works. We forget that God doesn’t love us because of anything we can do or don’t do, but HE loves us because HE is God and God is love. God chooses to love us in spite of ourselves. We don’t deserve it and never will, but because of His Great Mercy, we get to treasure this gift.
Some of my Favorite Quotes:
Ritual leads while relationship remains absent.
It is impossible to grow abundance among the thorns.
Those who have never been seen by man have always been seen by God
The difficulty of the journey does not define the quality of the destination.
Paradise is always at the end of the wilderness.

Info on Great Mercy:
“GREAT MERCY” is a unique series of parables that will speak to the heart of those dissatisfied with time honored denominationalism.
Michael carefully examines through modern parables that church is for the sheep and not the shepherd.
Enjoy a fresh release from the lethargy of ritual as Michael’s parables reach into the heart of the weary or war-torn believer.
“GREAT MERCY” is a parabolic witness to the activity of the unchanging God in His ever-changing world.
Explore the arena that is Christendom and understand the real place of His Son.
Grasp the human desires of His Bride, while Jesus steps out of the arena to where He is still welcomed.
Finally sip Jesus’ new wine for He always leaves the best until last.
Parables included are Stadium Saints, Of Temples & Tombs and Lightning Strikes of Love (and many more).
