The Bible Believer’s Guide to Dispensationalism
The Bible Believer’s Guide to Dispensationalism is not merely another evaluation of a preferred system of study. Rather, it is an earnest defense of true biblical interpretation.
Some think interpreting the Bible is relative and dependent upon personal preference. Others insist that various systems of study are necessary to find the right interpretation. Still yet, some go as far to claim that their church or organization has the only key to unlocking the Bible’s meaning.
All of these views err tremendously. Joseph acknowledged the only one who can “interpret” when he said: “Do not interpretations belong to God?” (Gen. 40:8). Furthermore, Simon Peter declared “that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation” (2 Peter 1:20).
So, if “interpretations belong to God,” and we are not to “privately interpret” the scriptures, how are we to understand what we read (Acts 8:30)?
The answer to that question brings us to the premise of this work. Namely, that God has given us a book without error, inconsistency or contradiction, and He has laid out a method that guarantees correct interpretation every time. This biblical method is actually God’s system of validating His own word, and is known as “rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15). When one traces this biblical practice throughout church history he finds its most common name: dispensationalism.
