One would need to review each chapter section by section. I believe Ryrie has done the best job in his discussion of Dispensationalism. He has done a dispensationlism job in showing how those of other doctrinal views have placed all Dispensationalists into a box dispensationalusm hyper-dispensationalists.

Only a small minority of people fall into the category of hyper-dispensationalism. There are many other topics that are addressed through out the book. I have read several others, including Lewis Sperry Chafer’s volume, and I believe that Ryrie has done the best job. The only point I don’t agree with is that he placed all the mid-Acts Dispensationalists into the hyper-dispensationalist box.

Some Mid-Acts might fit into that group, but most Mid-Acts do not. A lot of Mid-Acts Dispensationalsm go to church with the Acts 2 Dispensationalists and they get along fine. Dave Reese Mid-Acts right-division. Reese believes the same as I do on baptism. He rhrie Baptized to be identified with man.


We are not Baptized to be saved. For all CofC, it does not say that anywhere in the Bible We are Baptized to be identified with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. I have found that those who say people are heretics are usually the ones who are the heretic. Everyone for Christ needs to get along to bring others to Christ. All in a loving way. Very clearly explains the various positions regarding “dispensationalism” and offers lots of disspensationalism and substantiating information.

I was doing a lot of research on-line regarding this topic and found nothing to compare with the information contained in this book. Most of the information I found on-line was attempting to convince me to adopt a specific belief system. I was looking for something that provided a good solid dkspensationalism at the various beliefs with some analysis. In my opinion, this book handles the topic in a very balanced manner.

Dispensationalism – Revised and Expanded

For anyone interested in an in-depth study of the the topic, the book is well worth the cost. In my opinion when you are finished with the book, you will have a thorough understanding of the topic.

Dispensationalism, by Charles Ryrie, has long been considered the classic, definitive apologetic for the dispensational system. Ryrie begins his book with a general defense of dispensationalism dispensationalsim a help toward understanding the Scriptures and living the Christian life.

In this first chapter, he outlines several attacks against the Dispensationalist position, fispensationalism of which are dealt with in later chapters. He then outline several way sin which Dispensationalism helps answering the need of Biblical distinctions, the need for a philosophy of history, and provides consistent hermeneutics. In the next chapter, the author discusses what a dispensation is. Ryrie begins with the definition given in the original Scofield Reference Bible, which he considers inadequate, and works through definitions given by various dispensational writers.

He discusses the Scriptural uses of the word dispensation, and then considers the relationship of progressive revelation to the concept of a dispensation.

In The Dispensationslism of Dispensations, the author considers whether or not it’s important to hold to a specific number of dispensations to be considered a dispensationalists his answer is noand how different dispensational thinkers have divided the dispensations. He discusses each dispensation, and arrives at a “normative” set of seven dispensations. Ryrie then considers the origin of dispensational thought -a crucial point to consider given many of the attacks on dispensationalism revolve around the relatively recent systemization of dispensational thought.

He lays this argument to rest by showing the dispensational thinking of many great Christian thinkers going back to the Patristic fathers, and even back to Paul himself. Hermeneutics is the next target on Dr. Chapter five discusses the hermeneutics of dispensational thought, and how dispeneationalism differs from the hermeneutic used by other theological systems. He focuses here on a consistently literal reading of the Scriptures, along with a consistent separation between Israel and the Church.

The addendum on the Sermon on the Mount is quite helpful in dispensationalusm through the various ways of approaching this teaching, and the results of those approaches. Salvation in Dispensationalism, chapter six, discusses the means of salvation within dispensational thought. This is another important subject because one of the most common attacks against dispensationalism.


Ryrie makes a case for the object of faith remaining the same, but the content of faith changing. In chapter seven, Dr. Ryries covers the church within dispensationalism. It’s important to show the distinction between the Church and Israel. He makes several points, including the church’s distinct character and the church’s distinct time.

He then considers the church’s relationship to the Kingdom, saints of other ages, Israel, and apostasy. In Dispensational Eschatology, Dr. Ryrie discusses the relationship between dispensational thought and a pretribulational, premillennial view of the future.

In this chapter, he deals with the charge that a premillennial view of history minimizes the importance of the Cross, and the spiritualization of the Kingdom. Chapter nine works through progressive dispensationalism, detailing the origins and beliefs of this theological system. In chapter ten, Dr. Ryrie moves to covenant theology, and in chapter eleven, ultradispensationalism. He ends Dispensationalism with a plea dispfnsationalism open and civil conversation within the Church.

Dispensationalism’s strengths lie ryrif Dr. Ryrie’s careful analysis of the meaning of dispensations, his defense of dispensationalism’s origins, his explanation of salvation in the dispensational system, and finally in his overview of progressive dispensationalism and covenant theology.

His eispensationalism in finding and explaining references to dispensations in the work of God, starting with Paul, and moving all the way through the Church Fathers to the times just before Darby’s initial systemization of dispensationalism makes a strong case against the charge that dispensationalism is recent.

Ryie drawing a distinction between the content of faith and the object of faith, Dr. Ryrie provides a solid argument against the idea that the means of salvation must change if dispensations change. His ability to bring the charge back into the camp of the Covenantal believers is a masterful stroke. If believers must be saved by different means in different dispensations because the content of revelation has changed progressive revelationthen what must the Christian make of God’s giving of the Mosaic Law, and his insistence that the sacrifices of the Law actually provide a covering for sin?

The only way to make sense of this situation is to accept progressive revelation within different economies of time. The dislensationalism of Dr.

Ryrie’s work revolve around his treatment of hermeneutics and his treatment of the Mosaic Law. The chapter on hermeneutics primarily focuses on using a consistently literal reading of the text, but in more recent times Covenant theologians and Progressive Dispensationalists have laid a claim to literal hermeneutics as well.

The Dispensational system can no longer be defended by simply insisting on differentiating between the Church and Israel -strong positive arguments must be provided to lead the reader to this separation from the text itself.
