4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Fair, Assessment of the Beginnings of a Movement, October 9, 2003
This review is from: This World Is Not My Home: The Origins and Development of Dispensationalism (Paperback)
Dr. Michael Williams has waded through the many writings of Chafer, Scofield, and Ryrie, to examine the origins of the Dispensationalist mindset that still impacts the majority of American churches today. Williams is excellent at analyzing and critiquing (but never harshly) this theology, and in laying out all the implications of their system. He is charitable - always trying to give these men the benefit of the doubt when it comes to their motives and intentions, which he believes were good. But he is clear at holding up their conclusions against the Biblical data, and showing how they fall short. It can be a little dry at times, but overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in why vast numbers of Christians in America have had so little impact on the culture over the last 100 years. Read this book, and you will understand, as R.C. Sproul would say, "that ideas have consequences".

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: This World Is Not My Home: The Origins and Development of Dispensationalism (Paperback)
Best book on dispensationalism. Too bad its out of print now. Its incredibly helpful, extremely well-researched, and somewhat charitable towards dispensationalists despite heartily disagreeing.
