"The Captivity Letters are a rich deposit of Christian truth, waiting to be excavated and used in the church's ministry," says Ralph Martin. In his commentary, he singles out two themes that are high on today's agenda of theological and practical inquiry and planning. These themes are the cosmic dimensions of Christological teaching and the role of the church as God's locus and agent of reconciliation. In this examination, the author allows Paul's voice to be heard on these important issues.
