I understand from Wikipedia and elsewhere that dispensationalism can be broken into three main categories:
- Classical (Scofield, Chafer)
- Traditional, revised, or normative (Ryrie, Walvoord)
- Progressive (Bock, Saucy)
From what I gather, classical dispensationalism has largely disappeared, while traditional/revised remains strong despite the growth of the more recent progressive position.
Here I'm interested in the main differences between the first two categories. Obviously there are going to be distinctives in the thought of each of these theologians, but, broadly speaking, what is an overview of the differences between classical and revised/traditional dispensationalism?
Put another way, what is an overview of the theological distinctives between classical and revised/traditional dispensationalism that make it fruitful to treat them as separate categories?
