    LIST PRICE: $19.99


    Life brings sometimes hurting troubles and painful problems, known as ‘thorns in the flesh’. Paul the Apostle begged God for such a thorn of life to be removed but the response from God was “My grace is enough for you”. 

    Several questions arise such as the following:

    • Why did God respond that way rather than simply remove the thorny problem? 

    • Why does God allow us to be afflicted with a problem?

    • What actually is the grace of God and how can it be enough for our pains? 

    • What was the ‘thorn in the flesh’, which Paul chose not to reveal? 

    • Should we be thankful to God for the thorns of life with the often unbearable pains? 

    • Can anything new still come out of the story about the ‘thorn in the flesh’ of Paul?

    In When The Thorns of Life Hurt, the author has made bold attempts to answer all the above questions and many more using clues from the various writings of Paul. The personal stories of the author about God’s grace always enough, will encourage you to be thankful for God’s presence and mighty power at work in you, despite a problem with the associated pains. 

    When The Thorns of Life Hurt will help you discover more how God’s grace helps to unlock blessings on the issues of wisdom; patience; rejection; self-control; faith and hope in God; and contentment; from experiences due to the thorns of life. It’s a book for all times to read.
