TITLE: Reconciled Runaway
CATEGORY: Biblical Fiction
Snatched from his Jewish home in the Holy Land by the clutches of Rome, Onesimus found himself living a life he wasn’t supposed to live. As a young boy, he thought he was settling a family debt. Instead, he was sold into slavery. With no control over his own fate, Onesimus let bitterness fuel his rebellious choices well into adulthood. He began running away from God long before he ran away from his earthly master, Philemon. Though he gave up on God, the Lord did not give up on Onesimus. Through divine intervention, God brings the slave into contact with the Lord’s bond-servant, Paul. Would faith in the promised Messiah have the power to reconcile the runaway to God? Could the damage done by embracing darkness be overcome by the light of hope? As an imprisoned man facing death, Onesimus reflects on the life given him in Christ by writing a believer’s legacy.
This story is complete with questions at the end of the book for group discussion or personal reflection relating to each chapter.
