From editor in chief Paul Scharf –
The book’s subtitle tells the story: A Comparison of Covenant and Dispensational Theology. The volume unfolds through 18 short, easy-to-read chapters that flesh out Showers’ purpose. He starts by covering both of these systems of theology (chapters 1-5), then tackles specific Biblical and theological issues, such as the Old Testament covenants (chapters 6-10), the “Millennial Views” (chapters 11-13), the kingdom of God (chapter 14), the church (chapter 15) and law and grace (chapter 16 and 17).
Showers, who has recently retired as a long-time author and Bible teacher for The Friends of Israel, is one of those writers and speakers who always makes me feel like I am learning something new—even when I may be hearing him address a subject that is extremely familiar to me.
Although this book is suitable even for use as a seminary text, and is by no means simplistic, it is the one that I would recommend that anyone seeking to learn about dispensationalism read first.
