Who is Wrong? A Review of John Gerstner’s “Wrongly Dividing the Word of Truth”

Richard Mayhue | August 25, 2009

Dr. John H. Gerstner, a recognized scholar with impressive credentials, has issued a call for dispensationalists to admit the glaring gaps between their system and orthodox Christianity. However, his presentation of dispensationalism contains shortcomings that necessitate this special review article to point out some of these and to challenge dispensationalists to publicize a greater clarification of their position. Many of the assumptions that undergird Dr. Gerstner’s case against dispensationalism are in error. These faults are magnified by a number of major weaknesses in his argument. A review of the book shows how the author’s treatment of his subject deteriorates even more through ten representative theological misstatements. The work is of such a misleading nature that a retraction of some kind seems to be in order.
