Dwight Pentecost

      J. Dwight Pentecost is a Christian theologian best known for his book Things to Come. He currently is Distinguished Professor of Bible Exposition, Emeritus, at Dallas Theological Seminary, one of only two so honored. He holds a B.A. from Hampden-Sydney College and Th.M. and Th.D. degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary. During his academic career he has taught biblical subjects for nearly half a century (Philadelphia College of Bible, 1948-55; Dallas Theological Seminary, 1955-present). His nearly twenty books are written mostly for the general Christian reader.

      Pentecost is possibly best known for his published writings, which are predominantly focused on issues of Christian living and the eschatological scriptures. Pentecost takes a Premillennial and Pretribulational view of the unfulfilled prophetic passages of the apocalyptic biblical literature. He takes a Dispensationalist position, however his Things to Come (1958) is characterized by a comprehensive review of almost every view on the biblical prophetic subject matter that has any form of prominence.

God took the humble man Moses an... Read More
