Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you (Phil. 3:13-15).
It is truly a great privilege to be able to connect with you, our readers, here on this blog. There are so many things going on at Dispensational Publishing House that I wanted to take the opportunity to share another brief update with you.
First of all, you will notice that we will continue to post a fair number of articles regarding Noah and the flood as we yet rejoice with Answers in Genesis in celebrating the opening of the Ark Encounter. This is not a subject that is going away any time soon!
In fact, we have yet to run material from several of the writers that are part of this effort. Among them is our CEO, Dr. Randy White, whose series called The Saving Flood will actually begin tomorrow.
So you will still see a good number of articles about the flood mixed into our schedule, even as we return to running articles on various topics on a regular basis. We also hope to add a number of additional known and new writers to our rotation here on the blog in the coming weeks and months.
Just last week we announced the publication of our very first book: The Middle East Meltdown: The Coming Islamic Invasion of Israel by Dr. Andy Woods. The book is now available in paperback, ebook and Kindle editions. We are also working on a leader’s guide to complement this volume and extend its impact in these last days of which Andy writes so clearly. We look forward to providing you with an opportunity to interact with Andy about this book and plan to bring you more information about the subjects he addresses in it.
Thus on Tuesday, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m. (Central Daylight Time), you can join Andy for our first-ever DPH Author Hangout. This will be a Google Hangout event that you can watch live or later in the archives. Check this blog and our Facebook and Twitter pages for more information as it becomes available.
And, if that were not enough to keep us all busy, this month we are also launching our Revived Classics Series. Watch for preliminary blogs to help get us ready for this subject on Tuesday and Thursday, Aug. 9 and 11, then read a full explanation in our official opening Revived Classics blog on Saturday, Aug. 13. In that article we will release the names of several individuals whose writings DPH will feature as part of this series. This will be a very exciting new aspect of our work.
After Aug. 13, Lord willing, we will begin running Revived Classic blogs by these classic authors on a regular basis, and hope to soon begin publishing books and booklets from theologians, professors, pastors, speakers and writers whose works might, in some cases, be otherwise forgotten.
As we think of these great men of God from the past, I want to say along those same lines that I was saddened last week to have to write a tribute to mark the passing of Dr. Tim LaHaye. Yet I am overwhelmed by the number of people who have read and shared that article. I believe that shows how hungry people are for the unique perspective that we offer here at DPH.
In fact, without you, our readers, there would be no need for DPH at all. We do not take that for granted, and we hope to continue to attract your interest and earn your trust. Please read, share and comment on as many of our articles as you can. The opportunity that we have to communicate to you and through you is truly a gift of highest value (cf. James 1:17).
Thanks so much for reading today, and may the Lord richly bless you.
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32).

My reading of Bible prophecy leads me to expect a massive conversion of the Muslim world. Since I want to be in on what God is up to (and unlike you, I view God as very present and very active in this present age), I’ve been studying one of the major languages of the Islamic world, Turkish. This is a long lead-time project, but again, unlike you, I assume God will give us all the time we need to do all the things we need to do.
When I thought as you do, at the age of 20, I could not think more than a few weeks again. Ten years later God healed my eschatology, and transformed my life, my vocation, my marriage, my family. This makes sense, since Matt. 6:33 informs us that our goals need to be a subset of God’s goals. If we are convinced that God’s plan for this age is the global triumph of evil, AND IF we make a sincere effort to get with THAT perceived program, we swiftly become insipid salt, beneath contempt.
If Israel exercised “the Samson option” tomorrow, and a billion of our neighbors turned to us for counsel, what could you say? You’ve already written Muslims off, as mere game pieces on an imaginary chessboard.
