Dispensational or Reformed Theology

291D Dispensational or Reformed Theology

Two major theological camps within the Christian evangelical community are Dispensational and Reform.  While proponents of Reform Theology trace the exposition of their doctrinal tenets back to the Reformers of the 16th and 17th centuries A.D., dispensationalists only go back as far as the late 1800s.  However, both camps use the Bible as their major theological text.  Nevertheless, the hermeneutical method employed by the dispensationalist and the reform or covenant theologians are worlds apart.  Students of the Bible and Christian theology are often perplexed because they learn one of these theological positions in their church and are presented with the other in one of the Bible classes.  This course will objectively examine both theological positions and allow the students to make up their own minds.
