-Publisher

In this unique work James Tunstead Burtchaell uses the ancient story of Philemon and Onesimus as a compelling entry into modern theological reflection on the unbelievable reach of the grace and forgiveness of God.First published twenty-five years ago, this extensively rewritten edition of Philemon's Problem tracks across the spectrum of Christian thought -- from doctrine to ethics to worship. Burtchaell's provocative narrative demonstrates the profound insight that the father of Jesus is not an angry god in need of sacrificial appeasement but a God of absolute love. Burtchaell argues convincingly that the church's mission today, just as it was in Philemon's day, is not to offer a privileged avenue into God's favor, but to offer the privileged insight that God can have no attitude but favor.
