A clear, concise presentation of dispensational theology
Covering nine major doctrines of the Christian faith, Dr. Lightner provides a historical perspective on each topic, a positive statement of the areas of agreement among evangelicals, and a discussion of the different positions held by evangelical Christians. Practical suggestions and study questions for applying the doctrine to daily Christian life are also included at the end of each chapter.
"No other treatment of theology in the present era does exactly
what Lightner accomplishes in the comparison and analysis of theological
differences. . . . His work is always done evenhandedly, with an irenic spirit
and remarkable comprehensiveness."
