Book Description:
Philemon is a letter written by the Apostle Paul to the man of the same name, a leader in the church at Colossae, upon the return of his runaway slave, Onesimus. In it, Paul tells Philemon that Onesimus has become a Christian, mentions that he would like to have kept Onesimus with him as a helpful fellow-worker, and requests that Philemon treat him as a brother in the faith. It's a beautiful picture of how Christians are to treat those who have wronged us. - Summary by TriciaG
