Beyond what I had mastered of forgiveness.  Insightful and thought-provoking.  Much more than I ever expected.  Must read.

This is a wonderful book on the book of Philemon. It has a warmth about it for the characters in the story which brings them to life and easily lets us picture them as "people," not just names in the Bible to read about. Abshire brings Paul's apostolic motives into full view as he gently guides Philemon, in the spirit of Jesus' teachings, toward an attitude of genuine forgiveness for his runaway slave Onesimus. He also backs up every word and phrase of the book with the full throated Scripture references expected in a commentary. You'll also hear Abshire's heart here, the heart of a disciple yearning to tell the world about what he's discovered in the Gospel.
