  1. I cannot tell you how much I have appreciated Dr. Renald Showers’ various ministries-speaking, meticulous research, teaching, and writing he had throughout his life. I met him once, perhaps twice and it was a tremendous privilege and blessing to have done so. He was such a kind thoughtful Christian man. Words fail to express the sorrow (though not as those without hope) at this time over the home going of this dear servant of Christ. I know the FOI family feels his loss, and probably have for some time given the disease from which he suffered. But we do rejoice for him as He is now in the presence of the dear Lord he loved so deeply. I do thank the Lord for the impact and blessing Dr. Showers has had in my own life and in the lives of countless others over the years! Thank the Lord for the wonderful example Dr. Showers was, and for his faithfulness to our Lord over the many years! Maranatha!

  2. Thank you for this article. I have seen too many Anti-Semitic Pastors/Teachers who claim that C.I. Scofield was a Zionist and was funded and suborned by a cabal of Jewish Kabbalists. These conspiracy theorists try and tell us that Scofield was merely a shill for Zionism and used Dispensational Theology to introduce and soften the American people for the concept of a Jewish Homeland. However I have not seen any evidence to support this theory.

  3. Hi friends, is it possible to receive only the article by Dr. Renald Showers on the life of C.S Scofield? perhaps you could give me the issue in which it was printed, as we have many back copies of “Israel My Glory”.

    I have read many disparaging accounts of this man, even having been called a grievous wolf. as well that he mainly copied Darby in his “unscriptural” dispensational teachings.

    hoping to get help from you.
