TAOS, N.M.—Dispensational Publishing House, Inc. received its first book contract back on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016—a major milestone for the company, which began operations in October.

DPH’s first volume will be written by Dr. Andy Woods, a prolific author who speaks nationally on Bible prophecy and related issues. Woods is the senior pastor of Sugar Land Bible Church in Sugar Land, Texas, a full professor at the College of Biblical Studies in Houston and an adjunct professor at Dallas Theological Seminary.

His new book will offer an exposition of the prophetic revelation given to Ezekiel in chapters 38 and 39—exploring the intricacies of the events described there and the implications that they hold for our world today.

DPH founder and chief executive officer Dr. Randy White stated, “Not only am I pleased that DPH is going to publish such a substantial work of Biblical study, but I am very glad that this is the first published work of our new publishing house. Andy Woods well represents the kind of theological commitment and Biblical integrity that I desire to be seen in every work of DPH. It is my prayer that this work is a blessing to thousands who will learn prophecy without sensationalism or undue speculation, but with solid Biblical evidence and a literal interpretation of Scripture.”

“It is an honor to be the first published author for the new publishing venture, Dispensational Publishing House,” Woods said. “DPH is needed to fulfill a unique literary need in the body of Christ today regarding the demand for sound dispensational literature resources. Sadly, much of the dispensational material offered today borders on the hyper-sensational. Other available resources that offer an academic tone tend to emanate from the heavily amillennial and Reformed circles. DPH tries to strike the right balance by being both academic and prophetically relevant.”

Woods noted that the ultimate purpose of his book is “to alert people to the shortness of the hour and the soon return of Jesus Christ.”

As he writes in his draft: “There’s a very remarkable Chinese saying that states, ‘May you live in interesting times.’ I think the time period that we are living in now would qualify as interesting. Given the choice, there is not a time period in history that I would rather be living in than now. Why? The Lord seems to be setting the stage for His return as never before.”

White has declared that his goal is for DPH to become the go-to source for strong, Bible-based, theological, doctrinal and worldview resources from the dispensational perspective.

The book is scheduled to be published in late spring. DPH is currently working on plans for additional books, booklets, charts and infographics, as well as preparing to publish materials through its Revived Classics line.
