Feb 24, Connor Longaphie rated it it was amazing Shelves: modern-protestant , theology-religion. I agree with almost nothing ryrie said. But I liked how he said it. Clear writing. Good intentions. Principles behind the theology are honorable but I certainly disagree with it.
It did show me though how similar dispensationalism was to NCT. Stay away from both. Wonderful book though. Clearly defines dispensationalism. Addresses and debunks the false accusations against dispensationalism. Shows that dispensationalists use the word dispensation the way the NT does. Interestingly, he shows that 1 Dispensationalism has its origins centuries before Darby, and 2 Cocceius's seminal work on Covenant Theology was published only 39 years before the Poiret's systematic work on dispensationalism View 2 comments.
Nov 29, Matt Handzlik rated it it was ok. I am not giving this 2 stars because of the theology presented. While he was fleshing out dispensationalism, he often had a defensive tone which made me question more frequently rather than if it was a simple presentation.

The book was worth reading for this one sentence. Regardless of your theological camp it's hard to disagree with this: "The basis of salvation in every age is the death of Christ; the requirement for salvation in every age is faith; the object of faith in every age is God; the content of faith changes in the various dispensations.
View 1 comment. Jul 07, Clark Goble rated it it was amazing. Ryrie reiterates this Charles C. The author begins his text by summarizing the attacks on dispensationalism and demonstrating that its opposition comes from many sources, such as; theological liberals, conservative amillennials, premilleninialists who are not dispensational, and post millennial reconstructionists Ryrie - Kindle.
It is in light of these attacks that Ryrie launches his defense of Dispensationalism and the strength of his book revealed.
Ryrie asserts that Dispensationalism is helpful in that it answers the needs of Biblical Distinctions, History, and provides consistent hermeneutics. When Ryrie points out the common ground between dispensationalism and its opponents he serves to lessen the rhetoric that seems prevalent on both sides of the debate and presents dispensationalism in its most positive light.
Ryrie does list three characteristics that are an indispensable part of dispensationalism and set it apart from other systems of theology. In this matter, Ryrie seems to have erred just slightly. In this statement, Ryrie is making it clear that the dispensationalist is free to recognize the soteriological program of God as does the Covenant Theologian.
One can infer that the opposite is also true; the Covenant Theologian is free to recognize the glorification program of God. The difference merely rests on how much emphasis is placed on each. In the course of this book, Ryrie explores various doctrines as they are related to dispensationalism. I have a slight quibble in that I would have desired the author to begin his book with definitive working definitions of both Covenant and Dispensational Theologies and then expound from there; however, I cannot argue with the end product.
I enjoyed this book as someone who has studied dispensationalism in-depth. The author acco I enjoyed this book as someone who has studied dispensationalism in-depth. The author accomplished his purpose in my opinion in creating a meaningful contrast between traditional dispensationalism and other views.
Mar 02, Taylor Sines rated it it was ok. This book was not well written. He chased every rabbit trail of disagreement.
There was little clarity behind the outline of his arguments. Scriptures were not expounded upon. There are much better presentations of dispensationalism than this text.
Mar 17, John Donald rated it it was amazing. I did not think Ryrie's defensive of normative dispensationalism was completely convincing, but he did clarify what it was and that is what I was looking for in reading the book.
Question for Ryrie: If people were saved before this present dispensation without believing in the Messiah because that was not revealed to them as you propose, then are people saved in this dispensation if they believe in Yahweh but do not know about Jesus?
