From the depths of a Roman prison, words of encouragement and instruction flowed from the tongue of the great Apostle Paul.

The Apostle Paul may have been fettered and shackled to a series of Roman guards, but the Word he preached remained unfettered and free.

This volume contains commentaries on the epistles to the Philippians, Ephesians, Colossians and Philemon - which were written while the Apostle Paul was in prison.

The Prison Epistles were written for Orthodox layman to study the scripture. The verse-by-verse format allows for easy reference when studying, whether at home or in the context of a Bible study group.

About the Orthodox Bible Study Companion Series;

This commentary was written for your grandmother and your plumber. That is, it was written for the average layperson, for the nonprofessional who feels a bit intimidated by the presence of copious footnotes, long bibliographies, and all those other things which so enrich the lives of academics.

Working from a literal translation of the origfinal Greek, this commentary examines the text section by section, explaining its meaning in everyday language. Written from an Orthodox and patristic perspective, it maintains a balance between the devotional and exegetical, feeding both the heart and the mind.
