Through the Open Door
with Selected Commentaries From the Margins
About the Book
Beginning 2002 with the publication of three books addressing theology, Homer Kizer began to write extended essays and commentaries that have been primarily e-published on his ministry website: http://homerkizer.org. Through the Open Door includes one such essay, along with a selection of 2003 and 2007 commentaries, all employing typological exegesis. The Apostle Paul argued that the invisible things of God, even His attributes, were knowable by the things made. As such, the “breath” of a person functions as the revealing shadow, or in Jonathon Edwards’ words, the lively representation of the divine Breath of God. This is a companion work to A Philadelphia Apologetic.
