Sperry and Scofield are the two most significant figures in systemising and popularising the Dispensationalist belief's of J. N. Darby.

Williams traces the development of dispensationalism as a cultural and theological critique on 19th century America and England and its influence on the current instinctive spiritual beliefs of America. He analyses the internal logic that dispensationalists attempt to apply to their theology and the notable changes that are taking place within it today.

"The usefulness of this book extends beyond its historical study to the way it highlights hermeneutical issues that are always with us."

Naomi Richardson, The Reformed Theological Review

"dispensationalist writers treated fully and fairly... Williams is particularly astute on the difficulties encountered in attempting to apply a 'literal hermeneutic' consistently in their theologies. This book deserves the kind of sober and serious attention it has devoted to its subject."

Mark A. Noll, Author of ‘America’s Book: The Rise and Decline of a Bible Civilization, 1794–1911’
