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 for 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.
This textbook provides a background and foundational structure for establishing a two-semester course while providing a path for discussions covered 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.
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. ... Ashbaucher does an excellent job of making complex topics digestible. ... 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 cartnears 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.

At the outset of Dispensational Theology, the author stated that the format of the book is an expansion of the syllabus for a 300 level course on dispensational theology.... The structure of the book is well organized and suitable for a classroom setting. The premise is to demonstrate the significance of eschatology in the twenty-first century from a dispensational viewpoint.... In chapter four, Ashbaucher spent some time giving the history of traditional dispensationalism, ultra (hyper) dispensationalism and progressive dispensationalism, and their respective views regarding premillennial theology. The history and explanation of each view are well thought and explained understandably.... Overall it is the opinion of this reviewer that Dispensational Theology: A Textbook on Eschatology in the Twenty-First Century would make a good textbook for a Sunday School class or possibly an introduction to eschatology. While there were a couple of small issues, it would make for an easy read and it is certainly a book that could be understood by the average student of God's Word.
