Wonderful, Entertaining and Insightful  Feb 27, 2007
Anointed therapist, author and inspirational speaker, Ronn Elmore gives readers a literary backstage pass to the world of the "business" of Christian concerts and mega conferences. One can't help but conjure images of real-life personalities when reading about the larger-than-life Beverlyn Bourdeaux, her self-serving uncle/business manager, L.W. and the child star turned ministry leader, Nina Jordan. Elmore has the artistic saavy not to lead readers down to happily-ever-afterville; instead he infused just enough drama with just enough joy to make the story one that readers can relate to, and be inspired by.
Commendable Effort  Jan 26, 2006
Psychotherapist Ronn Elmore normally uses his relationship counseling expertise to write bestselling non-fiction books (How to Love a Black Man and How to Love a Black Woman). However, with Mercy, Mercy Me he takes a leap of faith and delves into the fiction genre. Again, relying upon his professional knowledge, Elmore creates realistic fictional characters-- characters who are experiencing difficulty in their personal relationships.

A prime example is Dr. Dwayne Grandison, a successful psychologist in Los Angeles. Although his career is soaring to new heights, it's not a profession he necessarily wants. In fact, it's his wife who pushes him to pursue clinical psychology. Dwayne actually has a yearning to help people, perhaps by ministry, like his late father and his brother Lafayette. But when his wife and unborn child die in a tragic accident, Dwayne's career is the least of his worries as he mourns and wallows in uncertainty. Suddenly life brings new opportunities, but will they be blessings or burdens?

First, his brother asks him to run a new men's ministry program at church with the help of Nina Jordan, a former television actress. While everyone knows about her previous battle with drugs, she has a secret that has yet to be revealed. Then, there's mega-evangelist/singer Beverlyn Boudreaux, who hand picks Dwayne to host a talk show on her new network. Although he is not the type that enjoys being in the limelight, he accepts the job offer. In addition, he is committed to his practice and to volunteering with the men's ministry. Realizing there are not enough hours in the day for all three of his commitments, he is forced to make choice.

Meanwhile romantic sparks begin to fly and he finds himself attracted to both Nina and Beverlyn, but again, he has a choice to make. The decision is made easier when he gets caught in an ugly scandal and one woman remains by his side.

Elmore's fiction debut is commendable, but it is not quite worthy of a bestseller status. The story started with a powerful prologue full of suspense and intrigue, but the excitement was tapered off with slow, uneventful chapters. It took a while to get to the actual plot, which was your basic love triangle.

While the author perfected the main character, others such as Sean, Dwayne's best friend, were not developed well. Elmore gave readers a true sense of Dwayne's profession, but included far too much dialogue from patient sessions, which detracted from the story.

The most interesting aspect of the novel was the behind-the-scenes look at television evangelists and the realistic portrayal of the business side including the temptation of money, glitz and glamour. The author also successfully presented spiritual messages, without being preachy, which is a definite plus. All in all, I'm sure fans of Elmore will love Mercy, Mercy Me.
alright  Mar 15, 2005
Too many typo's. I thought they were supposed to have people edit these books. It's just ridiculous.
I waited and waited until I purchased this book to be certain that I wanted it because other reviews that I had read were not favorable, but like a fool, I purchased it anyhow. But thank goodness that I purchased it used or else I would have really been aggravated. Although the premise of the book was a good idea about people that allow their "material possessions" to take their focus off of important people and things, mainly GOD; the book was not good to me. After I got past all the typos (which were vast in number in the book with the black cover), then I was able to better understand the book. It also was boring for the first couple of chapters, as well as predictable. My mother and father were married for 45 years before he died and she did not allow her grieving to go on that long because she truly believed that "God heals all wounds", so his lamenting over a wife that only had $$$ signs in her eyes from the very beginning and only was out for herself was beyond my belief. I will not be recommending this book to anyone, and even my 17-year old daughter told me that she had NEVER seen me take longer than 1 or 2 days to read a book. But I refused to go on to another book until I read this one, which caused me to get 4 weeks behind in reading a really good book, which only took me a day after finishing this one. If you want to read this, borrow someone's, DO NOT PURCHASE IT!
Ronn Elmore Did a Great Job!  Mar 15, 2004
Sucessful therapist Dwayne Grandison was still mourning the loss of his wife from a car accident when his brother, Pastor Lafayette Grandison approaches him about working with a new ministry at New Covenant Assembly. The position involves working closely with counselor Nina Jordan, an ex child star. Nina has successfully founded a female counseling program at the church and needs Dr. Grandison's expertise for the new male counseling program.

Approximately around the same time, Dr. Grandison is recruited by well-known evangelist Beverlyn Boudreaux for a talk show host position on her brand new Christian television network. Sparks fly as Dwayne works with both women in two very different atmospheres. Beverlyn's world is glitzy and glamorous, while working with Nina is more laid back and in the trenches of the church.

As the talk show becomes increasingly successful, Dwayne gets caught up in the traps of fame. He also grows closer to Beverlyn who reminds him more and more of his deceased wife. Unfortunately somebody very close to Beverylyn does not appreciate the budding relationship and proceeds to destroy Dr. Grandison's reputation with false rumors. Dr. Grandison will soon find which one of the two women will stand by his side as everything falls apart.

As the first novel by real-life therapist Ronn Elmore, this was a pretty good read. Dwayne's story felt authentic especially during the counseling sessions. Also while the mega minstry represented was fictional, the glimpse behind the scenes was informative. Even when doing God's work, people can easily get caught up along the wrong path --- the one leading to destruction.
