Paul was a deacon and a family man - the last person who would molest two teenage girls. But he did, and despite his wholesome reputation, was deeply entrenched in sexual addiction.
When Beth Sterling heard what Paul, an acquaintance from a former church, had allegedly done, she was flooded with the unwelcome memories of being sexually abused as a child.
Surprisingly, Beth and her husband are asked and agree to have Paul live in their home until his sentencing. They embark with him on a long and painful journey to wholeness. Because God's grace, Beth and Paul are able to work through the issues that make them fear each other, and they come to a place of forgiveness and growth. Their unforgettable story vividly illustrates that healing both sexual addiction and the aftermath of abuse is possible, but only through the redemptive power of God.
The Thorn of Sexual Abuse helps readers:
* become aware of the presence of sexual addiction and abuse around them, even within the church
* protect their own children from the devastation of abuse
* understand and better minister to sufferers on both sides of the abuse cycle
