Dispensational Truth Or God's Plan and Purpose in the Ages by Clarence Larkin Summary
In Dispensational Truth, Clarence Larkin maps the Prophetic Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. The culmination of three decades of bible study, Larkin's elaborate prophetical charts and descriptions made the literal interpretation of the Bible accessible to a vast audience and greatly influenced conservative Protestant visual culture. After the first edition of his Dispensational Truth quickly depleted, Larkin expanded his work twofold in charts and descriptive matter for the 1920 edition, which is reprinted here. This singular, exhaustive work draws on the works of figures like C. I. Scofield and John Nelson Darby and provides the definitive foundation of premillennialism. Clarence Larkin (1850-1924) renounced his career as a draftsman to pursue a spiritual life. In 1882, he became a Baptist minister and used his drafting skills to visually interpret the eras of the Bible in accordance with premilliannialist dispensationalism.

The GOSPEL PROPHECY: the Bible as Allegory by Alan Fuller Summary
The church fathers were much closer to the time when the original manuscripts of the Bible were written than we are, so doesn’t it make sense to use the methods of interpretation they used rather than forcing an understanding based on history and a literal sense of language? Especially when interpreting such cryptic books as The Revelation. A universe without God is different than the one a believer sees. An atheist sees a universe of randomness. Where are purpose, design and meaning? A Godless universe is a chaotic place ruled by chance. The Christian sees a universe under God's control. God gives purpose and meaning, and is the designer. His order is maintained throughout the domain. If that is the case, shouldn’t the Bible, God’s Word, represent something other than random bits of history and prose? Shouldn’t it be considered something more than the uninspired writings of ancient men?
The Redeemers Return by A.W Pink Summary
This book is designed mainly for those who are beginners in the study of prophetic and dispensational truth, though should it fall into the hands of those who are "looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ" and who have, perhaps for years, been giving earnest heed to the "more sure Word of prophecy," we trust that it will afford meat in due season and stimulate praise to God for the marvelous and blessed prospect which His Word sets before us. Many books have already appeared before the public presenting in clear and Scriptural language the various aspects of the subject of our Lord's Return, and we hesitated long before we decided to add one more to the number. The different chapters in this volume have been given by the writer in sermon and lecture form to numerous audiences both in this country and in England, and it is only the repeated requests of many of those who have heard these addresses which has caused us to now set them down in writing.
