Identifying the Seed
This book has one goal in mind, to try and bring greater understanding between two dedicated groups of Christians. Dispensationalists and Reformed Christians have a very different understanding of how God has worked in this world as well as how God will continue to work. There is a theological divide that has developed after many years of discussion and stems from a mixture of ignorance; misunderstanding and actual disagreement. Robert McKenzie seeks to examine what each side believes, fleshing out the differences and misunderstandings. He takes a look at the history of each system as well as their theological developments. The author seeks to be faithful to each system pointing out their strengths and weaknesses all the while citing the Scriptures that are used to support each side’s belief. It is hoped that with greater understanding the two groups will be able to engage in conversation with a clearer view of why a doctrine is believed and how the different doctrines build into the system. Whether you are a Dispensationalist, believe in Covenant theology or you aren’t quite sure if you fall in either camp this book can be tremendously helpful.
Identifying the Seed: Study Guide
The study guide is designed to help the reader navigate through each chapter of the book, Identifying the Seed. It is my hope that the study questions will be a good resource for the reader. Included at the end of each lesson is a personal application question to encourage the reader to go beyond the specific teachings of the book. It can also be used by the reader to engage with the discussion by writing down personal thoughts or questions that arise during the reading. This study guide is designed to be used by either individuals or groups. —Robert McKenzie, from the “Introduction.”
