Dr. Dwight Pentecost passed on to glory on April 28. He was a longtime prof at Dallas Theological Seminary. His book, Things to Come, is the absolute best ever on dispensational premillenialism, maybe on prophecy altogether, since it has much on the interpretation of prophecy and its history. Dr. David Alan Black has commented on his blog about Dr. Pentecost, who he knew well: http://daveblackonline.com/blog.htm (scroll down to Tuesday, April 29). I don't see how someone can be thoroughly educated on prophecy without Pentecost's 583 page tome. I have the big books by William Biederwolf (The Millenium Bible) and J. Barton Payne (Encyclopedia of Biblical Prophecy), but Pentecost's is the best. Admittedly though, the other two books have a somewhat different purpose than Pentecost's. Any any rate, sell your horse and buy Pentecost's book. A side note: I was a little boy in Wheaton, IL, when J. Barton Payne was a prof at Wheaton College, and my brother was a friend of his boy, Peter Payne, who grew up to be a scholar with the Institute of Credible Christianity.
