Both dispensational and covenant theology are ways in which believers “put together” their Bible. These systems serve as interpretive grid to understand the storyline of Scripture. Chapter 2 compares and contrasts dispensationalism and covenant theology to see how they relate different covenants and to better understand both approaches. Different varieties of dispensationalism and covenant theology are discussed.
The book The Theocratic Kingdom by George Peters is reviewed here. Peters's book is a defence of dispensationalism. The article aims its refutation against the idea that God's purpose through Christ was to erect on earth a kingdom under direct divine rule. He aims at Peter's thesis that the sin of the Jews was that they rejected that theocratic ideal.
This article responds to dispensationalism and its view on the relationship between the Old and New Testament and the interpretation of prophecy. The author maintains that although dispensationalists may be in error about the end times, those who uphold the gospel truth must be viewed as brothers and sisters.
This article looks at the teaching of dispensationalism through key biblical texts used by dispensationalists. Speaking about two comings of Christ is not consistent with scripture. The biggest challenge with dispensationalists is that they divide the church of God into two while maintaining the two covenants as separate.
Theonomy and reconstructionism came to existence in response to dispensationalism. Theonomy, in seeking to map a way for Christians to become engaged in society by applying the Old Testament, fails in its reading of the Old Testament. The solution is not in theonomy, but in understanding the sovereignty of Christ and the implications it has for the Christian life in politics.
