    He also examines popular texts such as First Corinthians and others that Dispensationalists have to contend with that causes problems for their system. The chapter on What is Literal Interpretation is worth the price of the book alone. This chapter causes the reader to rethink much of what has been promoted as "literal interpretation".   Vern Poythress’s book, Understanding Dispensationalism, is now online.

    To get a fuller grasp of the distinctives of dispensationalism, one could probably do no better than to read Vern Poythress’ book Understanding Dispensationalists. The entire book is available to read free online here. While there is some variety of views among dispensationalists, Poythress helpfully summarizes two elements that are central.   Gerstner's little book "A Primer on Dispensationalism" and Poythress' Understanding Dispensationalists were instrumental in my "questioning" of Dispensationalism. It was Dispensationalism Today, Yesterday, and Tomorrow by Curtis Crenshaw and Grover Gunn that "drove the final nail in the coffin!

      Another book that comes highly recommended is Vern Poythress's Understanding Dispensationalists, though I haven't personally read it so I can't vouch for it. I'd also see if you can get your hands on a copy of Gerstner's more substantial work, Wrongly Dividing the Word of Truth. I know you can get that at the Nicene Council website, here.   Dispensationalists believe that there are more than 2, years of history between the 69 th and 70 th weeks in Daniels prophesy. It is in this age that we understand that Abrahams children are all those who have faith, including the Gentiles. It is only during .

Poythress writes from a covenant theology background but works to see the theological questions from both sides.

He does a good job of distinguishing the more classical dispensationalism with the more modified form that is largely held today/5. Many modern contemporary dispensationalists read the Bible as a book that speaks directly to themselves. They read prophetic promises (e.g., IsaJerEzekJoelMicah ) as applicable to themselves.

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.5/5(1).

About. Understanding Dispensationalists is Vern Poythress’ critique of dispensationalism. Not long ago, I blogged about a pro-dispensationalist book released by Moody Press in Dispensationalism and the History of Redemption.

One of the contributors to that book said that Poythress’ critique of dispensationalism was fair. Dispensationalists are premillenial, because it is essential to their theological system, it is perhaps the fundamental point of Dispensationalism that Israel and the Church are distinct, and the Law-Gospel distinction must be preserved at all costs.

That is the very heart and core of classic dispensationalism. Understanding Dispensationalists by Vern Sheridan Poythress (1) Any person is a dispensationalist who trusts the blood of Christ rather than bringing an animal sacrifice.

(2) Any person is a dispensationalist who disclaims any right or title to the land which God covenanted to Israel for an everlasting inheritance. Structural Approaches to Understanding the Theology of the Apostle Paul.

Study Guide to the Book of Revelation Noted New Testament scholar Poythress provides an understandable and practical look into Revelation in this insightful commentary.

Dispensationalism is a religious interpretive system and metanarrative for the Bible. It considers biblical history as divided by God into dispensations, defined periods or ages to which God has allotted distinctive administrative principles.

For a dispensationalist, reading this well-intentioned book is a bit like hearing someone describe a significant event in your life, in your presence, although the speaker wasn't remotely involved in your life at the time of the event. They don't really get the story right and you'd really rather tell your own story/5.
