About the Book

The letter to Philemon brings a bold call for forgiveness and unity as the brotherhood of all believers. This letter, the shortest book in the Bible, speaks powerfully to us today toward issues like equality, unity, and what conversion to Christ does for us all. Christ forgave us everything and welcomed us as brothers and sisters in the Lord, now the choice of action is ours.

Together with Garland’s Colossians, Philemon in the NIV Application Commentary series, these lessons bring the meaning of this short letter into the twenty-first century.
