The first book of its kind, Progressive Dispensationalism presents a comprehensive and collaborative look at the arguments against, and the errors within, the progressive dispensationalist movement. The authors begin with a history of dispensationalism and then provide detailed examinations of sixteen key issues, including the hermeneutics of progressive dispensationalism; the relationship between covenants and dispensations; the Abrahamic, Land, Davidic, and New Covenants; cessationism; and the dangers of progressive dispensationalism to premillennial theology. Written by pastors, professors, and Ph.D.s from across the country, Progressive Dispensationalism will serve as a valuable resource for Bible students, scholars, and theologians navigating these complex issues.

Extensive discussion of the major covenants and their relation to Israel, and the disconnect between that and the Church is included. It addresses key passages such as Daniel 9 and Acts 3, as well as the rlationship of PD to Cessationism, the Rapture, and the Future Millenium. Without fail, every chapter deals with Hermeneutics and how PD abandons the normative approach for more erudition.... I wish this book could be read and devoured by all who defend the traditional dispensationalism; it would be well worth their time. -- Ken Hornok, Pastor, Midvalley Bible Church, Salt Lake City, UT * Voice *
This book answers the PD position from every angle. It is thorough, scholarly but understandable. In my opinion no one can read this volume and come away still an advocate of PD. Anyone confused or simply wanting solid answers, needs this book. It would also be a great text to give away to friends or pastors who are confused. -- Mal Couch, Tyndale Seminary * Conservative Theological Journal *
Every chapter ends with a considerable number of endnotes. An index is also included.... Finding a lower price [for the book] is always worth a try, and particularly for pastors this book's content is worth the extra effort. * The Baptist Bulletin *
