We have all experienced disappointment in relationships. Sometimes we wonder if it's even possible to have enduring, positive relationships in our homes, our work, and our communities.
In The Connection Code, trusted Bible teacher O. S. Hawkins digs deep into the biblical book of Philemon to give us a blueprint for building life-giving relationships in every sphere of our lives. This tiny book in the New Testament is a letter the apostle Paul wrote to a wealthy businessman named Philemon on behalf of his escaped bond servant, Onesimus. Containing only 22 sentences, the book of Philemon unlocks the code to forging interpersonal connections that stand the test of time.
With the practical and thoughtful Bible teaching he's known for, Dr. Hawkins reflects on every verse in Philemon in light of our relationships today. Following the style of the bestselling Code Series, The Connection Code explores:
- The three critical relationships each of us need
- How to let others know we believe in them
- Why a win-win perspective is crucial for friendships
- How true commitment always includes forgiveness
- Why finding our self-worth in Christ empowers us to love others well
If you long for deep, authentic friendships in a superficial world, discover what God's plan has always been for building relationships that last in The Connection Code.
