The Late Great Planet Church: The Rise of Dispensationalism

2009 NR

In this documentary, noted Christian theologian Jerry Johnson examines and refutes the tenets of dispensationalism -- a framework for reading the Bible that emphasizes Christ's imminent return as predicted by biblical prophecy. Exploring dispensationalism's history, leaders and widespread popularity -- including its influence on the best-selling Left Behind novels -- Johnson explains how this teaching strays from orthodox Christian doctrine.
