Rightly Dividing the Word, by Clarence Larkin, is a concise overview of the fundamental doctrines of the Bible according to a premillennial, dispensational perspective.
Larkin began his work on Rightly Dividing after completing Dispensational Truth, in an attempt to make an introductory book on the subject.
The Author started to prepare an "A B C" book to introduce his larger Work on "DISPENSATIONAL TRUTH," but after writing and condensing several times he felt led to abandon that idea and to prepare a book on "Rightly Dividing the Word," in which the "Fundamental Doctrines" should be "Rightly Divided" in a series of contrasts. The "Fundamental Doctrines" of the Christian Faith are clearly outlined in numerous books on Theology, but they are not available to the average reader and were mainly written for students. The Author has made it the work of his ministry to preach the "Fundamental Doctrines." To this end he has aimed to express them in the simplest and clearest manner possible. This book contains the cream and meat of his sermons for over thirty-five years, condensed and arranged in a form that will grip and interest the reader, because of the manner of their presentation. The Charts are clear and simple and add much to the value of the book, and will be suggestive to Preachers and Bible Teachers in presenting the "Fundamentals."
