Many books have been written to show that dispensationalism is either right or wrong. In this book Vern S. Poythress takes a different approach. Believing that dialogue is possible between dispensationalists and covenant theologians(of which he is one), he examines dispensationalism in detail and notes significant developments toward greater agreement between the two positions. This second edition adds a postscipt in which Poythress acknowledges further developments in modified dispensationalism and clarifies three points in response to feedback from dispensational readers. Vern S. Poythress is Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia.
