Written so that all can understand, this book dispels much current confusion by clarifying the most central and problematic teachings of dispensationalism. 160 pages trade paperback from Presbyterian & Reformed Publishing.

Review 1 for Dispensationalism: Rightly Dividing the People of God?
Date:May 26, 2010
Keith does a great job defining Dispensationalism, and how it is non-biblical by using quotations from both sides for and against. Lots of scripture is presented to support all points made. Also some nice summary chapters on each point regarding the doctrine of "Election" (a.k.a. the five points of Calvinism). Also this "End Times Madness" is debunked (e.g., Mat 24:1-36 has already been fulfilled in the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70 - there is no rapture), a mainstay of Dispensationalism false teachings.This book is a must for those just starting to realize the deception of the Dispensationalists (a.k.a. Arminians); and just as the Holy Spirit called me away from them, so hopefully His Elect too to a more reformed view which saved my sanity (Mat 24:24: "...to deceive, if possible, even the elect."). In the end, it's not possible.

Mathison has an excellent handle on what dispensationalism teaches from such proponets as Walvoord, Pentecost, Ryrie, etc. As a graduate of Dallas myself, I can validate what he says is exactly true; i.e., represents fairly the dispensational viewpoint. The book is thoroughly reformed and is refreshing. It is a bit lean on extended discussion of each point, but is intended as an introduction. Mathison lists a great bibliography. I highly recommend this book for the "recovering" dispensationalist who wants to be Biblical.
