Whether it is realized or not, every person has a system of theology. It may be a highly developed one or it may be a very simplistic one. It may be well formulated with a careful and purposeful consistency or it may be just a few convictions about several individual doctrines with no overall relationship to one another or concern for a harmony of the whole.
Two of the strongest systems of our day are known as Dispensationalism and Covenant Theology. Throughout this century they have been challenging one another for consideration in the minds of Christians. In this present work, Dr. Belcher seeks in the first two chapters to state in an objective manner the convictions of both systems. In the final chapter he compares the two in important areas of thinking. In the conclusion he gives instructions for a Christian to consider as he seeks to build a system of theology or as he tries to understand which system of theology is really Scriptural.
