Interviews

A Dispensational Discourse with Cory Marsh

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: Providentially, through the process of contributing to the new book called Forged from Reformation, I have become familiar with Cory Marsh, who also contributed to the book and served as its copy editor. My interactions with him led to this interview, for which I am most grateful. Marsh is a young professor, but his thoughts on the subject of dispensationalism are many—and they are profound. I believe that you will enjoy learning about [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Dr. Paul Martin Henebury

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: Dr. Paul Martin Henebury describes himself as “both an adherent and dismayed critic” of dispensationalism. If you do not know what he means by that, you should take the time to learn. There is much more to his understanding of these issues than we will be able to present in this article, but we hope to provide additional avenues for Paul to explain his views in the future—so stay tuned. Paul is [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Dr. Robert Lightner

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: One of the wonderful privileges that I have in my role with Dispensational Publishing House is the opportunity to interact with great Bible teachers, pastors and other authors. One such man is Dr. Robert Lightner. I have heard of him for many years, as he was a seminary professor to my own teachers, and I was also acquainted with the wealth of his written materials. We share a common heritage in the General [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Mark Musser

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: Springtime is here—and with it come celebrations like Earth Day and Arbor Day. This begs the question: How should Christians view their responsibility to care for the Earth? Also, how should we respond to the vast and growing environmentalist movement that seems to desire ever-expanding control over so many areas of our lives? For a response, we turn to pastor, missionary, professor and author Mark Musser, whose book Nazi Oaks has created a [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Dr. William Barrick

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: It would be very difficult to calculate the magnitude of the ministry impact made through the life of Dr. William Barrick. This brilliant gentleman has been involved in so many different disciplines—including teaching, writing, editing, missions, Bible translation and cross-cultural translation—at the very highest levels that one can barely comprehend it! And he has done it all as a traditional dispensationalist. Who, then, could be a better subject for this month’s interview on [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Dr. Michael Vlach

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: I have been following the teaching and writing ministry of Dr. Michael Vlach for several years—since the publication of his book called Dispensationalism: Essential Beliefs and Common Myths (Theological Studies Press, 2008). I am continually impressed and challenged by his desire to apply Biblical truth with precision and clarity. Dr. Vlach is having a great influence at The Master’s Seminary—both as a professor and as editor of the school’s theological journal. It is [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Dr. Thomas Ice

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: I have known of Dr. Thomas Ice since the early days of the Pre-Trib Research Center and had the privilege of interviewing him for the first time for a seminary class in 1997. I have met him numerous times since then, and have listened to many hours of his teaching through these years. I have looked to Dr. Ice as a model of one who applies sound exegesis and a profound understanding [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Dr. J. B. Hixson

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: Dr. J. B. Hixson is a passionate and enthusiastic proclaimer of dispensational truth. What’s more, the combination of education and experience that he has achieved are especially noteworthy, and qualify him to be regarded as a leading spokesman for traditional dispensational theology for many years to come. It is my privilege to count him as a friend, but even more important is the fact that all of us can look to him [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Dr. Woodrow Kroll

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: What a wealth of knowledge and Biblical wisdom we have in Dr. Woodrow Kroll! For 23 years we listened to him on Back to the Bible, where he served as president and senior Bible teacher. Since retiring from that position, Dr. Kroll has stayed busier than ever. Endeavoring to teach the Bible to pastors with no formal education, he spends his days writing and recording theology lectures for The HELIOS Projects, which is [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Dr. Christopher Cone

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: September is back-to-school month, so I thought it would be a great time to interview someone who could offer a unique perspective on the future of higher theological education. And I certainly found the right person to talk about it! I have watched the ministry of Dr. Christopher Cone from afar for quite a while. He has achieved an incredible amount in terms of both education and ministry—yet he has earned some of [...]
