  3. * STARRED REVIEW Dispensational Theology: A Textbook on Eschatology in the Twenty-First Century Reid A. Ashbaucher Reid Ashbaucher Publications, 246 pages, (paperback) $21.99, 978-1733139908 (Reviewed: October 2019) Reid A. Ashbaucher delivers an intelligent, well-organized, readable textbook on eschatology (the study of the end of the world) through the lens of dispensationalism (the theological system that tries to understand the revelation of God through different epochs of time). This is no small feat since both topics involve spiritual interpretations, symbols, intricate methodologies, and odd figures of speech used in the biblical exploration of end-of-the world prophecy. Anticipating the inherent difficulties, the author opens with a glossary of important ideas and phrases, as well as histories of early theologians and their views on the End Times. This helps readers understand what follows, including explorations of a amillennialism, premillennialism and postmillennialism; methods of interpretation of prophecy; Old and New Testament covenants; and the key differences and attributes of the tribulation and rapture, among others. Ashbaucher does an excellent job of making complex topics digestible. For instance, in his chapter on the fate of Israel and the Church in End Times prophecy, a controversial subject in theological circles, he argues his points methodically and clearly, ultimately offering the dispensationalist view that the two spiritual bodies "are functioning on two separate tracks, heading toward unification, as one body at the end of the age." In other words, God continues to have plans for both the nation of Israel and the holy Church. The book is thoroughly researched and expertly footnoted, lending authority to its prose. It's important to note that it is not for beginners; the author targets third-year theology students. While readers don't need to be in college to understand the ideas, they do need an ample knowledge of the Bible and a basic understanding of hermeneutics to get the most out of the narrative. Overall, Evangelical Christians and students of Christianity will find this a masterfully presented look at dispensationalism and end-of-the-world prophecy. Also available in hardcover.
  4. I am from Ohio and a graduate of Cedarville University and Trinity Theological Seminary. I just release this book and is a first of its kind, in that it is a textbook based on a two semester course syllabus of a course I took many years ago on Premillennialism. If you are interested in the subject I think you will find this book very educational on the subject.
  5. Reid Ashbaucher Publications Announces the Release of a New Textbook called “Dispensational Theology: A Textbook on Eschatology in the Twenty-First Century” TOLEDO, OH—June 11, 2019—Reid Ashbaucher Publications releases a new publication, a textbook on Dispensational Theology, a unique first for textbooks in this theological field. The subject of Eschatology has been studied and written about for centuries. Various viewpoints based on differing hermeneutical perspectives have driven this subject in many directions, causing confusion as to how we should view end-times from a Biblical perspective. Dispensational Theology: A Textbook on Eschatology in the Twenty-first Century, is informative, instructional, and systematic in its approach to eschatology, teaching from a dispensational perspective. This textbook, the first of its kind, has been developed from a college syllabus on premillennialism and provides a structured approach to a dispensational theology. Dispensational Theology is designed for those majoring in Bible or Theology, who have already taken course work in New and Old Testament survey and completed one year of Bible Doctrine. This book is suitable for implementation into any College or Seminary program at a 300 or 400 level in an undergraduate program, or a 600 level in a Seminary program. If the minimum recommended course requirements for students have been met, this book could also be useful in Church or Mission Bible Institute programs, while providing another resource for any pastor or educator’s library. INTERNAL STRUCTURE This textbook provides a background and foundational structure for establishing a two-semester course while providing a path for discussions covering over two sections. The following topics will be the focus of discussions over fifteen chapters. Section One: Premillennialism: Defining the Terms; The History and Characteristics of Amillennialism; The History and Characteristics of Postmillennialism; The History and Characteristics of Premillennialism; Understanding the Kingdom of God; The Hermeneutics of Prophecy; Dispensations; Biblical Evidence for Premillennialism, and Evidence for Premillennialism in the New Testament Gospels. Section Two: The Distinction Between Israel and the Church; The Day of the Lord and The Day of Christ; The Tribulation Period; The Rapture and Related Events; The Second Advent and Related Events; The Millennium and Beyond.

  6. Let me be more specific or let me be more clear. I write to audience that are christian, that are interested in the topic and subject I write about, in most cases they are individuals that are ages 16 and up, that are both male and female, that includes married, college students, and as I already stated, I only write non-fiction, in the end, yes you are belaboring the point. I tend to not get this pointed in details because most blogs are for general conversation and most individuals get the point when they read the context of the discussion. Enjoy your day.
  7. Yes they could, but I don't think that was your point. So I took the opportunity to clarify my position.
  8. we are, Theology, Religion/Spirituality, Philosophy, Christian Living are all considered separate genres, but are very closely related.
  9. No, I write to a christian audience, but non-Christians may be interested in some of the books as well. The Christian community is very diverse, some may be interested in theology, other bible study, others christian living, others a particular subject within Christianity. Over time the interest or needs of people within this community may or will change, thus, my readers may very well come back to read on a topic that is different from what they read in the past. Example: Warren Wiersbe and others have written on multiple subjects and type of books, he gets repeat readers because they learn to trust his views within their theology or world and live view. Its that simple. He has written over 150 books and sold over 4 million copies of his commentaries along. In his case, his platform was build as a writer, pastor, bible teach and radio personality. But in the end, my approach is the same as his, I write on a variety of topics. I am currently working on a two volume textbook. A long ways from what I have written in the past.
  10. In my mind, repeat customers are based on the subject matter they are interested in, and did they like the way I presented the material in the last book, I write non-fiction, information books, therefore, its the subject that draws them and how I presented the information (writing style). If I wrote fiction I would say you maybe correct.
  11. Your platform is all your work collectively. No product to show, no platform, unless you are just selling your personality. The more books I write the larger my platform becomes. I write to different audience, thus, each book become an outreach in building my platform. I try not to make it anymore complicated then that.
  12. Maybe, but I still like my choice moving to Ingram, It makes me feel better while I work.
  13. You are correct, Ingram promotes their outreach to be over 39,000 venues, and these include libraries as well. You could say this is Ingram's client list for distribution. They all would have access to Ingram's catalog, providing me the user of their services, the same outreach. In my book that is pretty powerful.
