Dispensationalism :: Dispensationalism – Revised and Expanded – Charles C. Ryrie

diepensationalism Regardless of your theological camp it’s hard to disagree with this: Jul 07, Clark Goble rated it it was amazing.

Ryrie reiterates this Charles C. The author begins his text by summarizing the attacks on dispensationalism and demonstrating that its opposition comes from many sources, such as; theological liberals, conservative amillennials, premilleninialists who are not dispensational, and post millennial reconstructionists Ryrie – Dispenwationalism.

It is in light of these attacks that Ryrie launches his defense of Dispensationalism and the strength of his book revealed.


Ryrie asserts that Dispensationalism is helpful in that it answers the needs of Biblical Distinctions, History, and provides consistent hermeneutics. When Ryrie points out the common ground between dispensationalism and its opponents he serves to lessen the rhetoric that seems prevalent on both sides of the debate and presents dispensationalism in its most positive light.

Ryrie does list three characteristics that are an indispensable part of dispensationalism and set it apart from other systems of theology. In this matter, Ryrie seems to have erred just slightly. In this statement, Ryrie is making it clear that the dispensationalist is free to recognize the soteriological program of God as does the Covenant Theologian. One can infer that the opposite is also true; the Covenant Theologian is free to recognize the glorification program of God.

The difference merely rests on how much emphasis is placed rjrie each. In the course of this book, Ryrie explores various doctrines as they are related to dispensationalism.

I have a slight quibble in that I would have desired the author to begin his book with definitive working definitions of both Covenant and Dispensational Theologies and then expound from there; however, I cannot argue with the end product.

Jan 22, Ben Adkison rated it liked it. Eyrie don’t consider myself a dispensationalist. I’m not sure what I consider myself, but not disspensationalism dispensationalist. For one thing, I think dispensational premillennialism is a little silly.

It complicates the Bible’s teaching on the end times in an attempt to be clear.

Certain interpretations of Old and New Testament texts seem farfetched. And I don’t think a “literal first” approach to hermeneutics is always the best way to interpret the Bible. So why did I read this book? One might ass Why this book? One might assume that it was just to gain a better understanding of dispensationalism in order to further discredit it as a theological system. But in truth, this was not the main reason I chose to read Dispensationalism by Charles C.

The largest factor contributing to my desire to read this book was the quote on the front cover. It says, “No one, whether friend or foe of dispensationalism, can avoid consideration of this important work. It’s a Good Book. I have to say that this is a pretty good book.

Ryrie’s explanation of dispensationalism clears up several misconceptions that I had been taught about the beliefs of dispensationalists over the years. Ryrie does a good job of creating a level playing field upon which everyone can interact with dispensational teachings, whether for or against. And that’s good because this is a family fight so to speak. I don’t doubt for a second that normative dispensationalists are evangelicals and Christians.

And even if I disagree with them, they’re brothers. So a level playing field is a good thing. Central Teachings of Dispensationalism To quote Ryrie, the three central teachings of dispensationalism are: We believe in the clear and consistent distinction between Israel and the church. We affirm that normal, or plain, interpretation of the Bible should be applied consistently to all its parts.


We avow that the unifying principle of the Bible is the glory of God and that this is worked out several ways – the program of redemption, the program for Israel, the punishment of the wicked, the plan for the angels, and the glory of God revealed through nature I disagree with Ryrie on all these points.

Truthfully I do see a distinction between Israel and the church, but not to the extent that dispensationalists do. I think both groups will share the same future, not separate futures. I don’t think that literal interpretation is always the method of interpretation that the text demands.

Sometimes an overly literal approach creates more confusion than clarity. And it wasn’t the hermeneutical method always employed by the apostles. I am by no means claiming to be an apostle, but I do think it’s suspect to say that they can interpret the Old Testament one way, but we must interpret it another way. I think that the unifying principle in the Bible is the glory of God through Christ, not the glory of God through multiple means in the various dispensations.

I do see evidence for different dispensations, or periods of time, or economies within the Bible, but I think they all led up to, and were summed up in Christ. I agree with Ryrie on Some Things I agree with Ryrie that the extent to which the Old Testament saints understood that their salvation was through Christ was hazy at best. However, my understanding of salvation in the “other dispensations” is still different from Ryrie’s. He says that “Jesus Christ was not the conscious object of their faith, though they were saved by faith in God as He had revealed Himself principally through the sacrifices that He instituted as a part of the Mosaic Law” Conversely, I believe that OT saints understood that their salvation was a result of God’s ability to pardon sin based upon an individual’s faith.

Salvation was a result of faith in God’s ability to pardon, which was later shown to be through Christ Rom 3: Progressively OT saints did understood that this would be through the Messiah, but obviously they didn’t understand the part that charlea Messiah would fully play in this pardoning with equal clarity in all ages.

So I agree with Ryrie that the OT understanding of salvation through Christ was hazy, but I still conceive of it differently than he does. I also agree with Ryrle that the validity of dispensationalism and covenantalism should be judged true or false based only upon the Bible, and not upon other factors.

Oftentimes both sides are disparaged due to false accusations and the use of straw-man apologetics. Middle Ground In the end, I think dispensationalism is short-sided.
