Book Review: Wrongly Dividing the Word of Truth, A Critique of Dispensationalism

Wrongly Dividing the Word of Truth: A Critique of Dispensationalism, by John H. Gerstner, Ph.D.; published by Wolgemuth &: Hyatt Publishers, Inc., Brentwood, Tenn., 1991; xi, 275 pages; $ 8.95.

Over the last few years there have been a number of noteworthy books written critiquing various aspects of dispensationalism: Dispensationalism Today, Yesterday, and Tomorrow (1985), by Curtis I. Crenshaw and Grover E. Gunn, III; Understanding Dispensationalists (1987), by Vern S. Poythress; The Gospel According to Jesus (1988), by John F. MacArthur, Jr.; and House-Divided: The Break-Up of Dispensational Theology (1989), by Greg L. Bahnsen and Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr. The serious student of the Reformed faith would do well to have these works in his library. Now there is another such work which is truly "must reading" in this area: John H. Gerstner's Wrongly Dividing the Word of Truth (in contradistinction to C.I. Scofield's Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth [1885]).
