Inspired Principles of Prophetic Interpretation
We have found a few copies of the 1965 hardcover edition of this treasured work on the interpretation of prophetic portions of Scripture. This is a book worth its weight in gold. Its 24 chapters show the great defects in Dispensational theology. Dr. Wilmot covers everything from the future of Israel, Daniel’s parenthesis, the throne of David, the meaning of “kingdom of God”, the centrality of the church, a sound view of the second coming, and much more.
Commendation by Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
“I was glad to hear that it was proposed to put these ‘prophetic studies’ by Dr. John Wilmot into permanent book form. I believe they will make a valuable contribution to such studies.
Nothing has been more gratifying during the past twenty years or so than the way in which the old dogmatic and intolerant attitude, which too frequently characterized many interested in these matters, has given way to a new spirit of humility and honest re-examination of the position.
What adds value to this study by Dr. Wilmot, over and above its inherent worth, is the fact that he himself has changed his position as the result of further study and thought. It is not merely an exposition of one particular attitude, therefore, but at the same time an appraisal of other points of view with which he has been long familiar over the years.
The reading of this book can do nothing but good because of its Scriptural character and its careful argumentation. All will not be convinced, but all should be helped and edified.”
— Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Westminster Chapel, London. 1965
About the Author
Dr. John Wilmot ministered in the pastoral office in three churches in the United Kingdom. His final pastorate was at Highgate Road Baptist Chapel, London, where he served for 35 years. On a number of occasions, responding to the invitations of Dr. T. T. Shields and his successor Dr. H. C. Slade, he served as a special lecturer at the Toronto Baptist Seminary in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, preaching also at Jarvis Street Baptist Church while there. Many of these lectures were compiled into this volume, titled Inspired Principles of Prophetic Interpretation. In 1948 the President and Senate of the Seminary conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Divinity.
