LETTERS TO A MILLENARIAN - book by A. Williamson
Premillennialism, and Dispensationalism in particular, lays great stress on the so-called unfulfilled promises of the Abrahamic covenant and insists that the lawful heirs of these promises are the physical descendents of the faithful patriarch, regardless of their own faithlessness and rebellion against God. To the contrary, this little book argues that, just as the true beneficiaries of a dead man's will are identified only by a careful examination and strict adherence to the stipulations of the document, so too are the heirs of the Abrahamic promises to be determined. The author demonstrates from the Old Testament itself that the unbelieving Jews were cut off from any covenantal relationship with Abraham in the First Century and therefore have no claim whatsoever to the benefits thereof until they come to faith in Christ and are grafted back into the "Israel of God" as it is now manifested to the world in the Christian Church.
THE HOPE OF ISRAEL - WHAT IS IT? - book by Philip Mauro
Written from the historic Amillennial perspective, this theological classic demonstrates that modern Dispensationalism's doctrine of the restoration of an earthly kingdom to national Israel is a revival of the very same teachings which led to the crucifixion of Christ and the persecution of the early Christians by the apostate Jews. It was because of Paul's views and his preaching that he was so furiously persecuted by the Jews, and was finally sent in chains to Rome. Had he been preaching what the Jews, themselves, believed to be, and what their rabbis had given them as, the true interpretation of the prophecies (namely that God's promise to Israel was a kingdom of earthly character which should have dominion over all the world) they would have heard him with intense satisfaction. But what Paul and all the apostles preached was, what what God had promised afore by His prophets in the Holy Scriptures was a Kingdom ocer which Jesus Christ of the Seed of David should reign in resurrection, a kingdom which flesh and blood cannot inherit, a kingdom which does not clash with the fully constituted governments of this world,and one into which Gentiles are called upon terms of perfect of equality with Jews.

A WHOLE NEW WORLD - THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO REVELATION - book by Greg Uttinger
This little book is a perfect introduction to the fulfilled view of the book of Revelation. With easy to follow reading, it would be a great book to give to someone who has never heard this view before. Readers will realize that an understanding of the events, metaphors, and symbols of the Old Testament are key interpretive tools. A person untaught in the Old Testament and unaware of even a few important chapters in the New Testament (i.e., Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21, etc.) will struggle mightily. However, by using the grid this book provides, the interpreter’s understanding will be greatly enhanced. The reason is that the grid is derived from the book of Revelation itself, and not from any outside interpretive model or prejudice.
NEW ARTICLE BY MIKE BLUME
Mike Blume responds to Thomas Ice! Ice wrote about why literal animal sacrifices in the Millennium are not at all a heretical thought. Mike challenges this claim and proves it is heretical with a point by point response to Ice's argument. Ezekiel 45 prophesies of animals sacrificed for sin and for atonement. Since Hebrews 10 distinctly claims there can be no more offering for sin and atonement, these prophecies of Ezekiel can only be understood as biblical imagery of all that the cross of Jesus Christ provided for us in the Church Age. Read this exciting article about a very important aspect of the cross of Jesus Christ and His final sacrifice for sin.
AGAINST DISPENSATIONALISM - Double DVD
Is the Dispensational hermeneutic a literal hermeneutic? What is the supposed “law of first mention?” Who is true Israel? How does one become a Jew? Was the formation of the “new” state of Israel in 1948 fulfillment of Biblical prophecy? Does the Bible teach that there is a future temple yet to be built? Has dispensationalism broken continuity with the Word of God and Church history? Has dispensationalism in its history taught different ways of salvation?
NiceneCouncil.com’s 2008 Conference, Against Dispensationalism: Israel, the Church & Bible Prophecy, was held October 4-5 and the conference DVD features Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr. (Th.D.), Kenneth G. Talbot (Ph.D.) and Jerry Johnson (M. Phil.) covering these and other topics. This two DVD set is divided into seven segments totaling nearly seven hours in length. The lecture titles are:
* Literally Abused: The Hermeneutics of Dispensationalism
COMPARISON OF DISPENSATIONALISM & COVENANT THEOLOGY - book by Richard P. Belcher
Whether it is realized or not, every person has a system of theology. It may be a highly developed one or it may be a very simplistic one. It may be well formulated with a careful and purposeful consistency or it may be just a few convictions about several individual doctrines with no overall relationship to one another or concern for a harmony of the whole.
Two of the strongest systems of our day are known as Dispensationalism and Covenant Theology. Throughout this century they have been challenging one another for consideration in the minds of Christians. In this present work, Dr. Belcher seeks in the first two chapters to state in an objective manner the convictions of both systems. In the final chapter he compares the two in important areas of thinking. In the conclusion he gives instructions for a Christian to consider as he seeks to build a system of theology or as he tries to understand which system of theology is really Scriptural.
A STUDY OF DISPENSATIONALISM - book by A.W. Pink
Early in his spiritual life Pink was a Scofield Reference Bible carrying Christian. Yet around 1929 he began to reject dispensational teachings, as he grew in his understanding of Reformed theology. In this little work, A Study of Dispensationalism, we discover his core complaint against dispensationalism: it destroys the unity and applicability of Scripture. He so vigorously turned from dispensationalism that in these pages he denounces it as a “modern and pernicious error.”
Through his characteristically insightful and compelling method he ably demonstrates dispensationalism’s destructive tendencies. Against dispensationalism he argues that “there is no conflict between the law and the Gospel of the grace of God.” Pink laments that “consciously or unconsciously, Dispensationalists are, in reality, repeating the sin of Jehoiakim, who mutilated God’s Word with his penknife (Jer. 36:23).” The Apologetics Group, Inc. (A Division of NiceneCouncil.com) is pleased to offer in print once again, Pink’s devastating critique of dispensationalism. This well supplements our concerns as expressed in our “Ninety-Five Theses Against Dispensationalism”. Reading Pink’s rebuttal of dispensationalism will show the earnest believer why our Ninety-Five Theses is such a necessary declaration. -- Dr. Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr.
THE LATE GREAT PLANET CHURCH
The Rise of Dispensationalism (DVD)
Many Christians today read their Bibles through the lens of pop-prophecy books like The Late Great Planet Earth and the Left Behind series. They naively believe the prophetic schemes and theological presuppositions expressed in these and other fictional writings represent the doctrinal positions that Christians down through the centuries have embraced. However, that is far from the truth.
Volume One of The Late Great Planet Church: The Rise of Dispensationalism is the first documentary of its kind. It exposes this erroneous system of thought as breaking continuity with history --- and even the very Word of God. In this first volume we will examine the beginnings, beliefs, and motivations of this innovative movement by focusing on its relatively recent development, stormy history and its most influential proponents.
BEFORE JERUSALEM FELL (DVD)
Revelation continues to be a favorite book for Christians today, just as it has been throughout the ages. Its bold drama easily captures our imagination in our visually-oriented culture. But Revelation is no easy book to understand. The Devil’s Dictionary facetiously defined “Revelation” as “a famous book in which St. John concealed all that he knew.” One of the key issues necessary for understanding John’s mysterious work is its date of composition. Once we realize when John wrote, the task of understanding what he wrote becomes much easier.
In this in-depth lecture, Dr. Gentry presents a helpful summary of his doctoral dissertation on Revelation’s date. He not only highlights fascinating evidence from ancient writers, but from Revelation’s text itself. He presents a concise, clear, and compelling case for a pre-AD 70 composition. Once he points out the clues in the text, a flood of light illuminates the story: John was writing Revelation as a prophetic warning of Jerusalem’s coming destruction, which ended the old covenant economy and secured the new covenant church a place in history. Once we hear the evidence, Revelation will become for us truly a revelation. We will experience as never before Revelation’s blessing : “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy” (Rev 1:3).
