People are often surprised when I tell them that I became convinced of the doctrines of grace through the preaching of a dispensationalist. Nevertheless, it is true. It happened when I was in college. Pastor Tommy Nelson’s exposition of Romans 9 changed my worldview forever.
It just so happens that not only is Tommy Nelson a Calvinist, but he is also a committed dispensationalist. He’s not a Bock and Blaising dispensationalist. He is a Ryrie and Walvoord dispensationalist. Nelson is old school.
Recently Tommy Nelson did a single sermon exposition of dispensationalism that explains why he thinks it is the key to understanding the entire Bible. The sermon and the notes are available for free download. To all of you theological archeologists, you’ll really love this one!
