"not a book about what was, but about what is still the instinctive, reflexive presumption of much popular Christianity." ~ Bryan Chapell (Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois ) "dispensationalist writers treated fully and fairly... Williams is particularly astute on the difficulties encountered in attempting to apply a 'literal hermeneutic' consistently in their theologies. This book deserves the kind of sober and serious attention it has devoted to its subject." ~ Mark A. Noll (Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana) "This is a superior work probably most helpful to those who have experience of traditional Dispensationalist and who are keen to think through its implications outside the realm of Bible interpretation and theology." ~ Crawford Gribben, Evangelical Times, "The usefulness of this book extends beyond its historical study to the way it highlights hermeneutical issues that are always with us." ~ Naomi Richardson, The Reformed Theological Review
