9781942614036: Dispensationalism Before Darby

In Christian theological circles discussion, critics of dispensationalism have argued that John Darby was the originator of the pretribulational rapture and dispensationalism. William Watson has spent over twenty years working through little known theological works of the 17th and 18th century. Drawing from primary sources he has demonstrated that Darby's perspectives were not aberrant nor did they originate with him. Instead, he followed a long list of individuals centuries before who anticipated the restoration of the Jews to their national homeland and believed in the imminent return of Christ. Now with the claim proved wrong that pretribulationalism and dispensationalism are new perspectives, hopefully the concentration in eschatological questions will be on exegesis of the Bible itself.

Review:

"William Watson's comprehensive research in Dispensationalism Before Darby demonstrates the historical fallacy in the frequent claim that elements of dispensational theology, such as a pretribulational rapture, only came into existence in the early 1800s. Watson's work is well worth the read." -- Mike Stallard "Ph.D., Dean and Professor of Systematic Theology, Baptist Bible Seminary, Moderator, Council of Dispensationalism"

"William Watson has done the spadework, researching post-Reformation eschatology beliefs in the English-speaking world. He reveals their wide-spread belief in premillennialism and developing views of the rapture. Anyone interested in such issues will need to read Watson's groundbreaking work." -- Thomas D. Ice "Ph.D., Executive Director Pre-Trib Research Center"

"William Watson plows new ground in researching the history of eschatological thought prior to the nineteenth century. To put it simply, Darby did not invent the pretribulational rapture idea." -- Ed Hindson "D.Min., D.Phil., Dean & Distinguished Professor of Religion School of Religion, Liberty University"

Book Description Lampion Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For years, critics of premillennialism have argued that John Nelson Darby was the source for the doctrine of the rapture and dispensationalism. Building upon years of research in seventeenthcentury and eighteenth-century English theological writings, William Watson argues that dispensationalism and the ideas associated with it were long part of British theological discourse. Drawing upon hundreds of early printed English books and years of archival study in primary sources and British libraries, Watson demonstrates that Darby s thought was neither aberrant nor original. To the contrary, he was following a long line of British clergy who anticipated the restoration of Jews to a national homeland and the imminent return of Jesus Christ.
