    Progressive Dispensationalism
    From your interview: “The key thing here is that PD (as it often is called) highlights the continuity of Scripture when traditional dispensationalism was known for making distinctions. So we argue how all the covenants of promise (Abrahamic, Davidic, and New) meet an initial realization in Jesus (not a revolutionary idea at all). This means that the prophets and the gospels are not about an era of the past (as many dispensationalists tend to argue by how they do their Israel versus church theology) but clearly address us as well as God’s People. However, like other dispensationalists, Israel is also seen as having a future in God’s plan as texts like Romans 11 and Acts 3:18-22 argue.”

    Yours and Dr. Blaising’s books concerning this subject did amazing things for my understanding of the Bible. They brought it together as a unity of God’s unfolding plan. For years, in my mind, the Scriptures had been parsed up into sections and presented as only for specific peoples and ages. This not only made sense when I read it but made complete sense that that’s exactly how God would do it. Your presentation of this *system* of theology revolutionized my ability to understand the Bible and also my confidence in it’s veracity.

    Can you tell I’m grateful?? :~)
