Dispensationalism and the History of Redemption is great addition to a wide selection of dispensational resources from the faculty of Dallas Theological Seminary.

Book Review: Word-Centered Church by Jonathan Leeman

Book Review: Word-Centered Church by Jonathan Leeman

Word-Centered Church is nothing new and that in itself is wonderful. Jonathan Leeman brings an ancient thought of basing all aspects of the church on the Word of God back to the modern church.
