HISTORY of Christian Theology

A theological movement popular among conservative, evangelical Christians in the 19th and 20th centuries that divides history into a series of time periods called dispensations in which God dispenses a different covenant or relates to his people in a different way. This interpretation of scripture emphasizes the imminent second coming of Christ to usher in a millennial period of peace. (A.D. 1832) John Nelson Darby, an important member the Plymouth Brethren, begins teaching Dispensationalist theology.
