In this impressive work by Michael Williams, he traces the development of dispensationalism and how it has maintained an influence in the Christian faith.
It appears that dispensionalism has become one of the most widely held positions in the church today and while definitions are varied the classic view is that is divides history in several distinct and separate dispensations.
It is during these dispensations that man in tested in respect of obedience to some specific revelation of the will of God.
Williams in this book analyses the logic which dispensionalists are attempting to apply to their theology and the notable changes that are taking place in the movement today.
The author treats dispensational writers fairly and fully, but he is not afraid to confront what he sees as their faulty hermeneutics.
Probably one of the best books available on the subject of dispensationalism
