Refuting the claim that dispensational thought is a nineteenth century innovation, this book offers a much needed corrective on an age-old misconception. In Discovering Dispensationalism, a dozen leading scholars trace the development of dispensational thought from the world of late antiquity through the present day. Throughout the volume milestones that emerged over two millennia reflecting later dispensationalism are traced, noting the significance of this theological framework on Christianity in the twenty-first century.
