John Nelson Derby, Prophetic Pioneer

Highland Books have published a new biography of J.N.D. by Marion Field, called John Nelson Darby: Prophetic Pioneer. It is an honest, readable account of the remarkable life of a man who possessed breathtaking intelligence, boundless energy, intense piety and a penetrating understanding of the word of God.

It is at once a travelogue, biography, and a history of dispensational theology. It also contains an analysis of Darby's influence today, not only in our theology and church gatherings, but also, possibly, even in US foreign policy towards the state of Israel.
