The book of Colossians is Paul's letter to a young, confused church that faced the problem of false teaching. In it he masterfully presents Jesus Christ as Creator/Sustainer of the universe and the supreme Head of the church. The book of Philemon is a personal and warm letter from one believer to another. Speaking on behalf of Onesimus, a runaway slave, Paul implores Philemon to be merciful and take him back now as a Christian brother rather than a slave.
