Michael Vlach's New Book--Dispensational Hermeneutics




October 19, 2022


Michael J. Vlach, Professor of Theology at Shepherds Theological Seminary in Cary, North Carolina, has released his latest book—Dispensational Hermeneutics: Interpretation Principles that Guide Dispensationalism’s Understanding of the Bible’s Storyline.


This 112-page book explains the ten interpretation principles at the heart of Dispensationalism and how it views the big-picture narrative of Scripture. He also responds to the seven interpretation principles closely linked with non-dispensationalism.


Vlach believes this book will be helpful to all who want to understand why dispensationalists believe what they do. “This book is for Bible students, pastors, teachers, and all who are interested in Christian theology and Bible interpretation.”


“My goal is to explain the interpretation principles that dispensationalists use to understand the Bible’s storyline,” says Vlach who is a dispensationalist and has taught on Dispensationalism at three seminaries. “I also show how these contrast with the interpretation principles other systems use so the reader can note the contrast.”
