These are the last Commentaries produced; Homer Kizer died, August 21, 2016, in Adak, AK. All of the old Commentaries will be reformated for mobile devices, as will all of his writings on other sites.

An Archive of "From the Margins" Commentaries

When called to reread prophecy, I set about writing a book-length manuscript, which was followed by a second and a third book in 2002 … this website was launched early in 2003, and with the launch of this website, a venue existed for shorter writings—and there have been many shorter pieces written since.

The archived “From the Margins” [the name borrowed from an essay collection published in 2001] commentaries disclose my growth in grace and knowledge; thus, all of them have been retained.
