Bought to get the facts from the horse's mouth as it were.
So unconvincing. Quite disappointed really. Too defensive and not really an exegetical presentation. An idea that I think hope time has now left behind. Read some Eldon Ladd instead! Me gusta. Gracias por su comentario. Lo sentimos, no hemos podido registrar tu voto. Vuelva a intentarlo. Great unstandable book about Dispensationalism. Ryrie's book is recommended as a standard work that friends and opponents of dispensationalism should have read. One of the leading theologians of dispensationalism explains its teachings and discusses the criticism of this system.
This requirement is met in principle by the present - revised - volume. Ryrie explains clearly what is meant by the dispensations, explains the underlying hermeneutics and shows the consequences of this doctrine for the important topics of salvation, ecclesiology and eschatology. In addition, he describes the history of dispensationalism and comments on the criticism of this doctrine. Finally, he gives an overview of Progressive Dispensationalism, Ultradispensationalism and in contrast covenant theology.
At the beginning as well as at the end of the book he pleads for a fair dealing between theological opponents. One feels some emotional hurt when he describes the sometimes very harsh criticism of dispensationalism. Therefore, he strives for a fair tone in dealing with theological opponents. It would be beyond the scope of this review to point out the biblical-theological and systematic weaknesses and mistakes of dispensationalism that in my opinion are revealed in Ryrie's book as well. There are plenty of books dealing critically with dispensationalistic doctrines.
I like to limit myself to review some of Ryrie's reasoning. Nobody is obliged to give a lecture on the arguments of his opponents. But if you are trying to do this as detailed as Ryrie does, then you should do it properly.
Ryrie has a point when he talks about the charge that dispensationalism was a new doctrine that had no hold in church history. But while he is right that the division of redemptive history into dispensations was nothing new, he keeps almost silent about the main thrust of the criticism. On the one hand, the use of the biblical concept of dispensation does not mean that it was understood in any way close to what dispensationalism teaches.
On the other hand, the criticism of introducing a doctrine which the Church has not known for years is directed neither against the division of redemptive history into dispensations nor premillenialism itself.
What is criticized is the doctrine of the two peoples of God Israel and the church as a parenthesis and the pretribulation rapture. In my opinion these teachings are not orthodox, but fundamental to dispensationalism. Those who want to defend dispensationalism should do more than state these doctrines. In the context of the doctrine of pretribulation rapture, it is also interesting that J. Darby is said to have adopted this doctrine from an Irvingian "prophetess".
This accusation is serious. If this story is refuted Walvoord , why is Ryrie silent about it? Ryrie complains that critics of dispensationalism like to lead "straw man discussions". This means to attack a theoretical construction instead of actually dealing with the teachings of the opponent. This method is not alien to him as well. It is probably not that easy to get along without a straw man. He writes about it not only in the chapter themed Covenant Theology, but the whole book looks like a struggle of dispensationalism vs.
One gets the impression that dispensationalism cannot be explained properly without covenant theology as an antitype in the background. As a covenant theologian you may take this for a compliment! Unfortunately, the covenant theology is represented rather coarsely.
The reproach that in covenant theology the honor of God was not central is almost absurd. Also, Ryrie does not seem to realize that the assignment of the Sinai covenant to the Covenant of Grace is by no means the unanimous opinion of Reformed theology. Ryrie criticizes the covenantal hermeneutics as arbitrary typology and allegorization. Granted, there is a weakness and danger in which some Reformed interpreters go beyond the limits the New Testament sets forth.
But I have not noticed that dispensationalist commentators would love allegory and typology less than their Reformed colleagues. It is different. One should argue about that, but the accusation that it is not "biblical" does not contribute much to clarify the matter. Ryrie also deals with differences within dispensationalism.
While Ultradispensationalism is treated only marginally, the debate about Progressive Dispensationalism is omnipresent. Ryrie does not mention the convergence with the Transformational theology that in my opinion is not only a problem for dispensationalism, but also turns the Protestant faith upside down within other evangelical persuasions.
Maybe that was not so obvious in Furthermore, I miss an opinion on the Darbystic ecclesiology, which considers the New Testament church to be an already failed model due to the dispensationalistic theory of decay.
The relationship of dispensationalism to the charismatic movement, the Israel-enthusiasm and the discussion about the "Lordship Salvation" remain unmentioned. A comment on the layout: the footnotes are at the end of each chapter. The constant browsing annoys a lot, especially since Ryrie has a habit of not always mentioning the names of the quoted persons in the text. What is useful for the fluent writing style becomes a nuisance to the reader by removing the footnotes to the end.
Otherwise, the layout is good and clear. When one of the most important dispensationalist theologians in the second half of the twentieth century writes a description of dispensationalism, this book makes a good starting point to study this doctrine. Whether it convinces him the reader has to decide for himself. But in order to form a thorough opinion I do not consider this book sufficient. I do not blame the author for choosing the topics that are important to him.
That is his right. But I have to admit that I had expected Ryrie to present a more conclusive argument for his case.
I first came across the word "Dispensationalism" in my mid 20s when a fellow Evangelical Christian described it as an "error". Over the years I have heard it spoken about with such vehement opposition I began to think it to be a heresy. It was, therefore, with much interest, and no little curiosity, that I set my self the task of reading this volume in order to get a greater understanding of the subject.
Dr Ryrie seeks to outline the basic beliefs of Dispensational Theology in a calm and gracious manner, not allowing himself to be provoked by the many shrill statements made against those who hold to these views. He succeeds in proving that Dispensationalists do not teach different ways of salvation but rather that they are as conservative in their Evangelicalism as those believers who hold to the contrary view. His last chapter "A Plea" is just that - he appeals to non-dispensationalists to be tolerant to those who hold to this system of theology stating that when it comes to the side issues that Evangelicals differ on no-one has a monopoly of the truth.
An excellent work, I thoroughly recommend it to: a Dispensationalists who would like to be confirmed in their beliefs b those who simply wish to have a deeper knowledge of the matter and c opponents who are yet to be convinced that this system of theology is not the heresy that some mistakenly claim it to be. Charles Ryrie manages to clarify what dispensations are and why these are important to those who reflect on Gods plan. He sheds light on the different discussions around this topic between dispensationalists on one side and covenant theologians on the other side.
I didn't get what progressive dispensationalism might be, but I guess this is due to my own shortcomings. It's good to know about variations in a certain view. It would take hours to write a good enough review on this book. One would need to review each chapter section by section.
I believe Ryrie has done the best job in his discussion of Dispensationalism. He has done a great job in showing how those of other doctrinal views have placed all Dispensationalists into a box with hyper-dispensationalists.
Only a small minority of people fall into the category of hyper-dispensationalism. There are many other topics that are addressed through out the book. I have read several others, including Lewis Sperry Chafer's volume, and I believe that Ryrie has done the best job.
The only point I don't agree with is that he placed all the mid-Acts Dispensationalists into the hyper-dispensationalist box. Some Mid-Acts might fit into that group, but most Mid-Acts do not. A lot of Mid-Acts Dispensationalist go to church with the Acts 2 Dispensationalists and they get along fine.
