‘The Thorn in the Flesh’ was written by D H Lawrence in 1914. It was the twenty-­fourth of his sixty-­seven short stories, all of which will be published individually in ebook format by the Blackthorn Press. The story can be read in tandem with 'The Prussian Officer' which was written in the same year and has a similar setting and theme.

It describes how African and Asian churches have been drawn into a conflict that began in the United States in the Episcopal Church, and raises vital questions of whether people with different understandings of authority and truth can live in harmony. This provocative book is not a history of the movement for gay inclusion, nor a history of the movement for a new, conservative Anglican church in the Americas. Instead, it is a comparison of the conservative and the liberal parts of the church. There are those, such as the Church of England, who have . . .
