Bookworm ReviewerAge: 18-24Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5A Scholarly Approach to DispensationalismMay 10, 2017Bookworm ReviewerAge: 18-24Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 0Meets Expectations: 4This book is an excellent resource for those who know nothing about dispensationalism or only have a vague idea. I knew nothing prior to reading this book. I feel a bit more confident about the subject and at least know the basics. This is a collection of essays from various professionals, so do not expect to read a 'fun' and entertaining book with definitions and examples on the topic, this is more of a scholarly nature. Arranged in a sensical manner; the first chapter gives a detailed explanation on dispensationalism and some examples of where it is found in Scripture. The following chapters go more in depth on the history, application, and future of dispensationalism. Readers will find this book a great resource and addition to their libraries. Though, I'm not a theology student nor do I necessarily agree 100% with this theology, the arguments stated for dispensationalism are thought-provoking and are sure to engage the reader. Had I not come across this well-written collection I probably would not have been motivated to do more personal research on this topic.
These are the titles of the chapters:
1. What is dispensationalism? A Proposal
2. Evangelicalism, Dispensationalism, and the Bible
3. The History of Dispensationalism in Seven Eras
