Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The relationship between Israel and the church is a crucial reference point in theology, especially in distinguishing between dispensational and nondispensational ways of thinking. The thesis of this book is that Israel and the church are distinct theological institutions that have arisen in the historical progress of divine revelation. But they are also related as successive phases of a redemptive program that is historically progressive and eschatologically converging. The approach to these issues here is neither polemical nor apologetic; rather, it anticipates a convergence among evangelical scholars in the recognition of both continuity and discontinuity in the Israel-church relationship. This book has three purposes: - To offer a contemporary dispensational treatment of that relationship through an exegetical examination of key texts with a focus on theological concerns - To foster genuine dialogue with nondispensational thinkers regarding major biblical themes tied to the plan of God - To identify the changes in dispensational thought that have developed since the publication of Charles Ryrie's book Dispensationalism Today in 1965

56 of 60 people found the following review helpful By Ronald M. Henzel on March 10, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book is a must-read for anyone seeking information on the state of Dispensationalism (a system of biblical interpretation founded by John Nelson Darby in the 19th century, and widely used within both Christian fundamentalism and evangelicalism) during the last two decades of the 20th century. At this point in time it's probably impossible to find a single source that fully explains the history, philosophical foundations, and relationship between Dispensationalism and its chief rival, Covenant theology. This has not been for want of trying, but the issues are so complex that one would need to read several key works to get the full picture. This book partially fulfills that need, and so can be added to the list of strategic resources, with an additional (somewhat surprising) bonus: it contains critiques of Dispensationalism (although mainly the new brand of Dispensationalism that this book promotes) from both within and without. This is highly unusual considering the editors both consider themselves Dispensationalists. Historically Dispensationalists have been loathe to open themselves up to criticism so freely. ¶ The majority of the book's contributors consider themselves Progressive Dispensationalists, and they explain how and why they depart from earlier versions of Dispensationalism. Afterward, three non-dispensational authors (Willem VanGemeren, Bruce Waltke and Walter Kaiser) provide feedback. Both of these aspects (i.e., internal and external criticism) are much-needed steps forward for a theological movement that has tended both to be ingrown and to avoid real, constructive dialogue with outsiders.Read more ›

Unlike the hostility and polemics that usually accompany this issue, Craig Blaising and Darrell Bock have offered us a good willed, honest dialog on this divisive subject. It's interesting that they invited three theologians from the Covenant community to offer responses in this book. I am not aware of a single book written by a covenant theologian which has done the same. I wish someone would. My appreciation goes out to these gentlemen. May their tribe increase.

I gave this book 5 stars because it has so much varied material for the dispensationalist. It can help beginners however, this book is more applicable to those who have a basic understanding of dispensationalism and covenant theology. I will always regard this book as a main-stay in my library (kindle library) for years to come. Invest in this book and you will not go away dissatisfied.
