Books / Commentaries I have written

In my Searchers Class, I would often comment that when I write my commentary on that book it will explain this passage. Finally, I got around to writing some brief books for Bible Class. The largest work is Revelation. I do have several other workbooks that I will be adding to this page as I have time.

The most recent commentary is 1 Timothy.  I have titled this commentary A Minister Training Manual.
