The Teachings of

Zane Hodges, Joseph Dillow, Robert Wilkin
(The Grace Evangelical Society)

and the extreme teachings of J. D. Faust

For Further Study

1. Of historical interest is William Kelly’s review of a tract entitled, The Prize of Our High Calling by J. Sladen. Kelly’s review was reprinted by R.A. Heubner in the Sept/Oct 1995 issue of Thy Precepts.  Sladen’s position of many years ago is remarkably similar to the position of Hodges and Dillow. As one reads Kelly’s answer to Sladen, it is almost as if he is responding to Hodges and Dillow. The similarities are striking. If you would like a copy of this paper, contact George Zeller at the Middletown Bible Church.

2.  Also of historical interest is the paper by William Hoste (easly 1900's) entitled Who Will Share in the Kingdom? This also is an answer to the same kind of teaching being promoted by Hodges and Dillow and the Grace Evangelical Society.  It reminds us that some of the important doctrinal battles which were fought in previous generations are still being fought today. Hoste demonstrates that it is Biblically unthinkable to suggest the possibility that there will be a group of saved saints that will not inherit the kingdom.  If you would like a copy of this paper, contact George Zeller at the Middletown Bible Church.

3. Dispensational Disintegration—The Reign of the Servant Kings, a critique of Joseph Dillow’s book by Miles Stanford. May be obtained through an Internet search.

3. "The Overcomer of the Apocalypse," by James E. Rosscup, Grace Theological Journal 3.2 (1982) 261-86.  An excellent study showing that all true believers are overcomers.
