A Complete Guide to Understanding the Dispensationalism Controversy


Disciple of Jesus Ministries 2007

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Have you ever wondered what to think about dispensationalism? Kerry Trahan’s A Complete Guide to Understanding the Dispensationalism Controversy is a highly comprehensive and accessible resource that will bring both sides of this controversial theory to light. Perfect for anybody seeking a greater understanding of the topic of dispensationalism, this book thoroughly details the history, tenets, and opposing viewpoints surrounding this form of biblical interpretation. Trahan explores the definition of the term and the interpretation of the theory from a strong biblical standpoint, sharing with us his great wealth of knowledge based on years of studying the topic.

Broken down into three parts, Trahan's dissertation first discusses the meaning behind the term “dispensationalism,” pulling definitons and quotes from many respected theologians such as Charles Ryrie, C. I. Scofield, and H. A. Ironside. Section two details Charles Ryrie’s three “sine qua non,” or essentials, of dispensationalism, and the third section of this informative book explains some secondary theological issues, most of which relate to eschatology.

This guide to dispensationalism, published in 2007, is an excellent resource for those wanting to learn more about all aspects of the topic. With Logos Bible Software, Trahan's writings are more accessible than ever. You can instantly view Scripture references contained in A Complete Guide to Understanding the Dispensationalism Controversy by hovering your mouse over them, and searching becomes an easy one-click breeze.
