In my experience, there are two types of books: the type you read, or part-read, and then leave on your shelf, and the type you read and then lend to others. This book is of the latter type. Based on the apostle Paul’s deeply painful experience, it has been written for people enduring a ‘thorn in the flesh’. Such thorns are defined with maximum breadth to cover all situations of chronic suffering, whether longer term illness, personality traits or relationship difficulties.
