“It is my conviction that many who are presently disposed toward Dispensationalism would not be victims of the system if they were better acquainted and informed about the system and its history – its theological roots and the doctrinal errors it has spawned.” – The Late Ernest Reisinger, Pastor Emeritus, Grace Baptist Church, Coral Springs, FL
Many Christians today read their Bibles through the lens of pop-prophecy books like The Late Great Planet Earth and the Left Behind series. They naively believe the prophetic schemes and theological presuppositions expressed in these and other fictional writings represent the doctrinal positions that Christians down through the centuries have embraced. However, that is far from the truth.
Volume One of The Late Great Planet Church: The Rise of Dispensationalism is the first documentary of its kind. It exposes this erroneous system of thought as breaking continuity with history — and even the very Word of God. In this first volume we will examine the beginnings, beliefs, and motivations of this innovative movement by focusing on its relatively recent development, stormy history and its most influential proponents.
Hosted by Jerry Johnson, President of www.NiceneCouncil.com, this documentary features pastors, theologians, and historians, who at one time were strongly committed dispensationalists. Several of these men even trained at dispensational academic institutions before abandoning the system. They have since rejected this system as thoroughly unbiblical, viewing it as a stumbling block to the Church and a distraction from the Great Commission.

“Dispensationalism has thrown down the gauntlet; and it is high time that covenant theologians take up the challenge and respond to them Biblically.” — Dr. Robert L. Reymond, author, A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith
“The Late Great Planet Church (DVD) is a welcome and much-needed rebuke to the error of Dispensationalism which, for the last 180 years, has misrepresented the Scripture’s teaching on the unity of God’s purpose in the church. The historical facts presented reveal the fallacious foundation of dispensationalism’s hermeneutic and theology. Dispensationalism is serious theological error and NiceneCouncil.com ought to be thanked for its diligent work in exposing the history of this movement.” — Rev. Stephan R. Van Eck, Minister of Congregational Life, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Fort Lauderdale, FL
“The Late Great Planet Church: The Rise of Dispensationalism has the potential to be one of the best Christian documentaries of the year. I appreciate the time and research that went into it and the style in which it was presented. This is a must see for our Left Behind generation.” – James F. Dietz, Director of Student Services, Knox Theological Seminary, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
“NiceneCouncil.com’s newest production The Late Great Planet Church: The Rise of Dispensationalism is to be commended for drawing attention to the early development of today’s phenomenon called dispensationalism. I encourage every Christian to view this important documentary.” — Dave MacPherson, author, The Rapture Plot
“The flawed system of theology known as Dispensationalism has had a negative influence on the Christian church over the last 150 years or so. The debilitating results of this errant theology needs to be corrected for the church of Christ to be about her work of fulfilling the Great Commission given to her by her Lord (Matthew 28:18-20). Volume One of The Late Great Planet Church: The Rise of Dispensationalism is a much needed work to aid both in the unraveling of Dispensationalism and the propagation of biblical, covenantal theology.” — Dr. W. Gary Crampton, author, Calvinism, Hyper-Calvinism & Arminianism
“Volume One of The Late Great Planet Church: The Rise of Dispensationalism is a powerful tool that will create a good deal of discussion and dialog for all on both sides of this issue. The arguments presented do not come across in an attacking or sarcastic style. They present the truth in a loving and heartfelt manner. I recommend that students of God’s Word — especially those who have received dispensationalism via the popular culture — view this incredible presentation.” — Dr. D. Randall Talbot, Academic Dean, Whitefield College & Theological Seminary – Lakeland, FL
