Dispensational Truth - Clarence Larkin's thesis into the actions of God in the Holy Bible - is renowned for its author's detailed illustrations, charts and explanations.
</br> Perhaps the most ambitious work ever authored by Larkin, Dispensational Truth covers a range of Biblical subjects across the Old and New Testaments, with the prophetic elements receiving the greatest emphasis. Larkin's aim is to explain the wisdom divulged in the Bible over the centuries that it was composed, so that readers may comprehend the full richness of the scriptures. How God dispensed wisdom and dealt with mankind, His decrees and instructions to humanity, and how these were interpreted and carried out by His followers are topics Larkin examines with great gusto.
</br> Clarence Larkin aims to connect each part of the Bible in a manner which is refreshing and clarifying for the reader. He navigates the principle events of the Good Book, explaining them in language that readers can easily understand. This demystification is a central pillar of this and other books by Larkin, who as a preacher sought to promote comprehension of the Biblical lore to his congregation, an as an author sought to promote wider understanding among all Christians.
</br> Unlike most other preachers and authors on Christian lore, Clarence Larkin famously saw the value in the use of images and diagrams as a means of explaining the most complex or intricate principles of the holy texts. Accordingly, this book contains many illustrations and charts; these give visual representation to episodes of the Biblical canon. These charts are crucial companions to the text, and it is with them that the reader may gain enormous insight.
</br> Larkin's investigations range across the Biblical books, but also beyond to things such as the Egyptian pyramids. Seeing these as significant to events in the Book of Exodus, we receive complex diagrams of the pyramids, and a discussion of their layout. Larkin keenly explains the scriptures which resulted from the Israelite's interaction with Egypt and their culture, in a manner theologically and historically enlightening.
</br> Owing to the tenacity of its author, Dispensational Truth is one of the most thorough discussions and explanations of the Biblical canon in existence. As some of the larger charts contain small print, it is likely that readers will, in parts, require a magnifying glass in order to discern Larkin's analyses to the fullest.
