A sequel, Outside the Crowd, was published in 2010. His poetic works have appeared in several journals and anthologies since 2005.

Coffman retired after 40 years of ministry. Besides weekly sermons, he authored Communicate in Word and Deed for the United Church Press and Finding Myself in the Parables for The Christian Board of Publication.
