To pursue a musical career he never dreamed possible, Paul Shepherd left home believing he was secure in his faith and his relationship with Jesus Christ. Now eight years later, Paul is dangerously over his head in a life style that can only destroy him. Having turned his back on God, he heads home for what he hopes will be a second chance. With the help of a new found friend, Paul learns the ultimate lesson in forgiveness and mercy. 'A Brand New Mercy' is a touching story of hope, second chances, and discovery of God's unfailing mercy.
