The apostle Paul was surely deliberately vague when he did not specify the nature of his 'thorn in the flesh'. Was it a physical or psychiatric illness, a recurring temptation, or a difficult relationship?

Whatever it was, each of us has our own thorn, and Dr Martinez helps by writing not just theologically, not just as an accomplished psychiatrist, but as someone who has suffered all his adult life from a thorn (eye disease) that God has not taken away. He brings comfort out of that experience as he points us towards help - towards acceptance, grace, perseverance and hope.
