Reviews - What do customers think about Promise of Dawn: The Eschatology of Lewis Sperry Chafer?

Excellent & Thorough  Jul 25, 2008
I loved reading this work by Dr. Richards. It was wonderful reading about the life of a man who God used to start one of the world's largest seminaries. What's most significant about this work is how it traces Dr. Chafer's early life at Northfield, his experiences with Dr. Scofield, Dwight Moody and others, his early teaching jobs, and his life-long bible study into what essentially became his systematic views, with his primary focus on soteriology and eschatology.

The book is well-researched, adequately engages with other writers on their thoughts about Chafer's theology and how it grew from his earlier experiences, and is easy to read in the process. Though a part of the book is devoted to explaining his eschatology (as Chafer's development of it is Richard's main focus in the book), those who have read Chafer will find nothing new here, just a rearticulation of his views on the End Times. Those who've read his Systematic Theology should probably just skip over this, but those who haven't would need to read it.

Overall, this book is well-worth the read. It focuses on the development of Chafer's eschatology (primarily) and how this man, out of no formal theological training, came to help form one of the largest Evangelical Seminaries in the world. This man's theology has influenced the face of the North American continent, not only through his books and seminary, but through the teachings of many other seminaries and men who shared similar views (Ryrie, Pentecost, Lightner, Walvoord, McClain, etc.). A truly wonderful book that helps people understand much older/traditional Dispensational beliefs within Evangelical history. Highly recommended.
A must read!  Oct 26, 2003
This is a great book! Few people hve ever heard of Lewis Sperry Chafer, but many know the names of those who have been influenced by his life and writings. Though the book is religiously oriented, the reader gets the feeling that s/he is marching wiht Chafer from the mundane to the sublime. This book concerns the subject of futurology and pinpoints with great accuracy what awaits the world inthe end days.
The Promise which Delivers  Oct 22, 2003
Richards has written an outstanding book! He goes into great detail,increidibley interesting, about the origins of those who believe in a secret rapture of Christians. The authors of the best-selling series of books, Left Behind,took many of their ideas from the person of whom Richards writes, Lewis Sperry Chafer. This fascinating book is a must read for anyone who has an interest, passing or intense, in the subject of religion.
