Well hello Hidden G and thanks for kicking this one off. Regret to inform you that neither of your answers above are what I have in mind for those clues.

Also, forgot to give this wiki link which describes how these work. And, as examples: Cryptic Crossword II and Cryptic Crossword III

Dont really know the best way for those interested to go about responding to these. All are welcome to respond to any one, several, or all clues and I can post updates/filled in clues periodically if needed. If you prefer you could also pm me with your entire solution and I'll be sure to cite credit. However, all's good. Hope you enjoy.

yeah, that's not my intended answer. like this clue though so not gonna "spoil" it just yet. know you'll get it soon enough. also, had a more contemporary Christian in mind. and the second definition for 19D is not terribly arcane I dont think. seems the ones you had most issue with were the straight homophones with different spellings and without a clue suggesting a phonetic interpretation like "window of (utter) dispair". Have only set a few of these (3 1/2) and really only worked a couple of dozen. would appreciate your feed back re the homophone "rules" as well as in general. also the "back forty" clue is a saying in the US and was derived from the Forty Acres; an RKO Studios graveyard for old movie sets where the answer was kept. throw back is another US saying meaning to eat or drink usually rapidly and esp alcohol.
