The scriptural premise of this book is that all believers at some time or other are given a thorn in the flesh. The duration and number of thorns may vary, indeed some may be lifelong, however all, argues Dr Kendall, are part of God's purpose to lead us into greater intimacy with Him.
Although there have been many speculations as to the nature of Paul's 'thorn', no clear answer is given from scripture. The fact that the thorn is not specifically identified, states R.T. Kendall, enables us all to identify with Paul in suffering a thorn in the flesh. Eleven of the twelve chapters, explore a range of possible 'thorns'. 'Loneliness', 'Disability' 'Chronic Illness' and 'An Unhappy Marriage' are just four examples.
Written with compassion and humour, this book , containing scripture references, personal testimony and wise counsel, challenges believers to see God's hand in every aspect of their lives and brings hope and encouragement to those who are suffering.
