David E. Garland is professor of Christian Scriptures at George W. Truett Theological Seminary and has twice served as interim President of Baylor University. He is the author of various books and commentaries, including Mark and Colossians, Philemon in the NIV Application Commentary and the New Testament editor for the revised Expositor's Bible Commentary. David remains connected to local church ministry.
In the Philemon online course, David Garland teaches through the book of Philemon passage-by-passage. Lessons show how to bring the ancient message of this short biblical correspondence into a modern context and explain not only what the letter to Philemon meant to its original audience but also how it can speak to us powerfully today.
