The Transforming Weakness of the Apostle Paul

Paul was subjected to a deal of suffering, not all of which was physical, but where his mental and emotional health was also impacted. This suffering he went through though is not the end of the story, but is something that was able to be transformed for the glory of God. In this lecture, Dr. James Houston shares about how Paul's sufferings can help us frame our thoughts about suffering.
