The Gift of Thorns Study Guide

A Biblical Guide to Understanding Jesus, the Flesh, and the War for Our Wants
  • By A. J. Swoboda
Product Description

Discover God's good will for our wants.

The Gift of Thorns Study Guide, a companion to The Gift of Thorns, dives deep into some of the hardest questions we wrestle with in the war for our wants:

  • What do God's desires and Satan's desires have to do with us?
  • Which desires did God place in our hearts at creation, and why?
  • What can we do when we start losing our desire for God?
  • Why do some unwanted desires persist after we start following Christ?
  • Can we want a good thing too much?
  • How can we discern which desires to crucify and which to nurture

This study guide has everything you need for a full personal or group experience.

  • The study guide itself--with thoughtful introductions, questions for personal reflection and application, and discussion questions for leading a group or team.
