Christ’s Prophetic Plans

This is a 2012 book edited (and contributed to) by John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue. It is a good book and a great help in supporting “futuristic premillennialism.” The first two chapters are also a defense of dispensationalism and there is a chapter defending a pretribulational rapture. In addition there is a chapter on why […]

Prewrath: a very short introduction

Alan Kurschner, writing in 2014, has restated the prewrath view which was made popular in 1990 by Marvin Rosenthal in his book, The Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church, and also by Robert Van Kampen’s 1992 book, The Sign. Kurschner has become a popular representative of this unique view. Basically it is a redefinition of the “Day […]

Readings in Christian Theology, Vol. 3

It was in 1994 when I read two and one half of this three-volume set, edited by Millard Erickson. Now in 2020 I picked up the third volume and finished it. This third volume has three parts to it: New Life in individual experience, in collective expression, and in future extension. It was the third […]

The Kingdom in History and Prophecy

Another book relating to theological reading this year is this 1915 book by the well-known founder and President of Dallas Seminary and forwarded by C.I. Scofield.  My copy is a 1967 reprint though I also have a Kindle copy.  I have been interested in the subject of the kingdom of God since my introduction to […]

Of Antichrist and His Ruin

We may not think anything of John Bunyan other than his wonderful Pilgrim’s Progress and even with that we would be miles ahead of those who don’t know him.  Yet I have found that his other books open a door to Bunyan that I did not know even from reading his great allegory.  Bunyan was […]

Booklets Worth Reading

Vital Issues of the Year By RBP, Various Authors Regular Baptist Press published this booklet in 1973. It was for the purpose of keeping the GARBC churches informed of various issues at the time. They include: evangelism and missions, the ecumenical movement, the charismatic movement, alcohol, drugs, the sexual revolution, race relations, divorce, the occult, […]

What On Earth Is God Doing?

Renald Showers is best known for his writings on prophecy. I had recently read a few of his books and chose this one also.  It is a summary look at the history of Israel from its time of choosing by God to its captivity, and final rejection of its Messiah.  Showers then traces the church […]

The Popular Handbook on the Rapture

I enjoyed this book very much as I do most dispensational, pretribulational, premillennial books.  Twelve authors provide twenty one chapters on interesting subjects including various defenses of the pretribulational rapture: two chapters supporting the “departure” view of 2 Thes. 2:3 (by H. Wayne House and Tim LaHaye); reasons for interpreting prophecy literally (by Thomas Ice); […]

The Pre-Wrath Rapture View

I have read this book late. Showers wrote this in 2001 and the pre-wrath view of the rapture came into voque in 1990 with Marv Rosenthal’s The Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church, and in 1992 with Robert Van Kampen’s The Sign. I read them at the time but now have reason to study the view […]

The Kingdom in History and Prophecy

I read this book on Kindle.  Though it’s hard for me to read without a pencil in my hand I made it through just fine.  I like reading this older dispensational premillennialist especially when it comes to prophetic things.  Sure, I find some minor points with which I disagree, but I miss the plain speaking […]
