Evangelicals agree that the Bible is God's inerrant word. But we sometimes differ on how to relate the messages of the Old and New Testaments. Without a basic understanding of this crucial matter, it is difficult to know how to use the Old Testament to formulate either doctrine or practice. For example: Was Israel the Old Testament Church? Are Old Testament promises to God's national people fulfilled in the church today? Or, is Mosaic Law binding on believers now? Are twentieth-century Christians to obey the Ten Commandments, including Sabbath observance? In this book, thirteen noted evangelical theologians discuss, fairly but clearly, the continuity/discontinuity debate in regard to six basic categories: theological systems, hermeneutics, salvation, the Law of God, the people of God, and kingdom promises. Covering much more than the differences between Covenant Theology and Dispensationalism, this work of distinguished evangelical scholarship will fuel much profitable study and discussion.

If you are researching or studying dispensational theology, this book is well worth the price. It builds on Ryrie's seminal "Dispensationalism" and nuances it, and more precisely defining dispensational ideas. It is a must read.
