"Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." - Jerome

Respectfully disagreeing.

“A major alternative for analyzing the structure of biblical history is offered by a school of evangelical thought more popularly known as ‘dispensationalism.’ Dispensationalism has set itself over against covenant theology as a means for grasping the architectonic structure of biblical revelation.

As the dispensationalist perspective is being evaluated, it should not be forgotten that covenant theologians and dispensationalists stand side by side in affirming the essentials of the Christian faith. Very often these two groups within Christendom stand alone in opposition to the inroads of modernism, neo-evangelicalism, and emotionalism. Covenant theologians and dispensationalists should hold in the highest regard the scholarly and evangelical productivity of one another. It may be hoped that continuing interchange may be based on love and respect.”
