Read full description of the books:

This book is important for the ongoing discussion between covenantal and dispensational interpreters. While the length of the work does not offer substantial response to critiques, it does offer implied critiques of prior dispensational interpretations and appears to take seriously those criticisms of dispensationalism from covenantal interpreters. For dispensationalists, this book signals the beginning of a more robust use of Biblical Theology in doing systematic theology. Importantly several BT ‘tools’ are used – typology, intratextuality, progressive revelation, and redemptive historical epochs.
For my own theological development, the chapter on dispensations in biblical theology helped to dispel some of the negative connotations associated with the word “dispensationalism.” All biblical theologians have spoken of dispensations, so dispensationalism is not de facto unbiblical because of its use of that particular word. However, I was frustrated by the assumptions of the authors in the areas of biblical interpretation. Proof texts are often used without as much as a footnotes as to why they do not accept viable alternatives to their interpretations. Furthermore, it is not entirely clear why they ignore the important aspects of the NT use of the OT, which I think is the greatest challenge to their hermeneutical model, which appears to use the Bible differently than the NT authors. Regarding their understanding of the future promises of Israel, it is not clear to me why they are able to include gentiles in the promises of Israel but kick them out when it comes to the material promises. Why can’t those promises be fulfilled in the New Heavens and New Earth, as Hebrews 11:8-10 clearly teaches? Furthermore, they focus on the ethnic nature of the Jews without considering whether the NT thinks that is the most important aspect of being part of Israel. The OT contains examples of non-ethnic Jews being part of the material covenant blessings, so why would the gentiles not be part of that? I could go on and on with this, but I will refrain. With such large questions looming from covenantal interpreters, it is not clear why they would ignore these questions and gloss over these interpretive hurdles in just several paragraphs. This book is a good sign from dispensationalism, but it clings to the same tired interpretations that make dispensationalism so dangerous to biblical interpretation and the discipline of biblical theology.
