"The Rise and Fall of Dispensationalism"
Dr. Daniel Hummel
How has dispensationalism, despite often being dismissed as a fringe apocalyptic movement, shaped Anglo-American evangelicalism and the larger American cultural imagination? How did a nineteenth century Protestant establish the hallmarks of this theology? Dr. Daniel Hummel’s book The Rise and Fall of Dispensationalism: How the Evangelical Battle Over the End Times Shaped a Nation answers these questions. He joins us from Madison, Wisconsin.
