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 [...]

Reflections on the Life of Robert L. Thomas, Th.D.

Robert L. Thomas, Th.D. (June 4, 1928–Sept. 6, 2017) The New Testament puts heavy emphasis on using the mind as the principal avenue to Christian growth.[1] Dr. Robert L. Thomas modeled this truth in his own life and ministry in the Word of God. Throughout his teaching ministry (1959–2008) he applied his brilliant, God-given mind to Bible study, research, writing, and teaching. That career culminated in December 2014 with Dr. John MacArthur announcing the awarding of professor emeritus status to Dr. Thomas [...]

Remembering Two Great Teachers

Two great dispensational seminary teachers entered the presence of the Lord this past week—Dr. Stanley Toussaint and Dr. Robert Thomas. Dr. Toussaint went to be with Christ on Tuesday morning. He served at Dallas Theological Seminary from 1960 to 2012. On Wednesday morning, Dr. Thomas went to heaven. He served at The Master's Seminary from its founding in 1987 until 2008, having previously taught for 28 years at Talbot Theological Seminary. I never had the privilege of meeting either of these men personally [...]

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.

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 [...]

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 [...]

Editor’s Note: Following is a short interview with Dr. J. B. Hixson in which we go deeper on issues related to Bible prophecy and the nations. For greater context, you can go back and read the major interview with Hixson which we featured previously in our series called A Dispensational Discourse. J. B. is a great friend of Dispensational Publishing House, and it is our joy to announce that his daily radio program, called "Not By Works," will soon be a regular part of [...]
