Front Cover
Cosimo, Inc., Mar 1, 2007 - Religion - 276 pages
Usually identified with the Christian sect of Hyper-dispensationalism-which recognizes a clear distinction between the Church and Israel and claims that the Church began with the ministry of the Apostle Paul-E.W. Bullinger focuses here on Paul's epistles to the churches, defending them as God's unique revelation and expounding on the great truth of the Mystery, or Body of Christ. This passionate attempt to "bring back vital truths to their proper place" is a must-read for Bible scholars and believers alike. British clergyman ETHELBERT WILLIAM BULLINGER (1837-1913) was one of the most respected Bible scholars of the 19th century. He is author of numerous works including Commentary on Revelation, Great Cloud of Witnesses, and How to Enjoy the Bible.
