Description

Dispensationalism is perhaps best known for its distinctive doctrines of a "secret rapture" of the Church, a future "great Tribulation" over which will preside an evil world leader known as the "Antichrist," and the rebuilding of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem along with the reinstitution of the Old Testament sacrificial system under a restored Levitical priesthood. However, the most pernicious errors of this system are not eschatological, but soteriological. As this book demonstrates, Dispensationalism, as popularized in the early 1900s by C.I. Scofield in his Reference Bible, and believed today by a large segment of the professing Evangelical Church in America, is a radical departure from the historic Christian understanding of the Kingdom and leads to an undermining of the biblical Gospel itself.

Author Biography

Philip Mauro (1859-1952) stands out as one of the most captivating Christian writers of the Twentieth Century. For many years, he was a patent lawyer who argued cases before the United States Supreme Court, and he earned international recognition due to his successful handling of the French Artillery case against the U.S. Government, the Westinghouse Air Brake case, and other prominent cases. In 1903, at the height of his professional career, Mauro was converted to Christianity, and from that time forward, his chief occupation was the study of Scripture and the application of his keen intellect to biblical subjects. Initially embracing the Dispensational views propagated by the popular Scofield Reference Bible in his early years as a Christian, Mauro wrote several books and pamphlets from that perspective until coming to the conclusion that the system was grossly erroneous, and even heretical in its basic presuppositions. Although the more blatant errors of classic Scofieldism were downplayed by later writers, enough of the original system's influence remains in the Dispensationalism of today to warrant continued study of Mauro's meticulous rebuttals. His other works include The Hope of Israel, The Wonders of Bible Chronology, Evolution at the Bar, and his massive commentary on the Book of Revelation entitled, Things Which Must Soon Come to Pass.
