I have finished a revision and update of my 2008 book, Dispensationalism: Essential Beliefs and Common Myths. The ebook version is now out and a hard copy version should soon follow, hopefully within a week. [UPDATE: Paperback is now available too]. The book has the same framework as the original. I have added updates to each chapter and three new chapters—(1) “Continuity and Discontinuity in Dispensationalism”; (2) “Key Differences between Dispensationalism and Covenant Theology”; and (3) “Recommended Resources on Dispensationalism.”
There are about 35 pages of new content. The original hardcopy version was 73 pages, while the revision and update is 112 pages. Although an update, the book is considered a new book with a new cover and ISBN number.
While adding some new information and chapters, the book is similar to the original in that it is a quick-hitting book that can be read in a short period of time. The book purposely functions much like a “fast facts” or primer on Dispensationalism. It is not a long detailed discussion of all aspects of Dispensationalism or the seven dispensations of Dispensationalism. For more on that one should consult books by Charles Ryrie, Robert Saucy, and Craig Blaising and Darrell Bock.
In a succinct manner I try to present what is at the heart of dispensational theology. I also point out myths about Dispensationalism.
If you have any questions about the book let me know. I appreciate your interest and input. The ebook version can be found here.
