I am about 3/4 of the way through a book written by the coventant theologian Vern Sheridan Poythress called "Understanding Dispensationalists". The boook is short (about 120 pages, $8) and doesn't defend CT agaist Dispensationlism but instead tries to reason out why people from these two sides have such a hard time understanding each other. Namely, he shows where and how are presupossitions are so different that we can be pointing to the same texts and read different things. He discusses things like the use of "literal" and "plain" interpretation by the Dispys and how this term can be loaded. Anyway, finding myself somewhere torn in between, I found this book very helpful in understanding some of the discrepencies between the two views and how they come about. I think everyone should read it, both the Dispys and CTs, so that we can all understand each other better. Vern's main goal is to open up a more productive dialog between the two sides so as to hopefully one day come to agreement. P.S. I know this should probably be in the book section but since this is the forum that this is usually discussed, I wanted to get as wide an audience as possible.
