Martin draws on his experience as pastor, teacher, and writer to engage the reader in the complexities of the text. He focuses on a Christ-centered biblical theology and the amazingly relevant pastoral concerns that shaped these letters. In commenting on Colossians, Martin highlights a wholistic Christology in contrast to the past and present perversions of the gospel. In the section on Philemon, he draws attention to the social implications of the koinonia of faith for the servants of Jesus Christ.
