A SUBSTITUTE FOR HOLINESS
THE THEOLOGY OF THE SO-CALLED PLYMOUTH BRETHREN EXAMINED AND REFUTED.
DANIEL STEELE, D.D.
PROFESSOR OF DIDACTIC THEOLOGY IN BOSTON UNIVERSITY
Author of "People's Commentary," "Love Enthroned,"Mile-Stone
EDITOR'S NOTE: I don't actually own a copy of this old book, so I am depending on the text at the Gospel Truth web site for the content. There are a couple of copies at openlibrary.org, and if I become aware of corrections that need to be made, I will make them. (The chart in chapter 13 is from one of the texts at openlibrary.org.) I thought the book should be here, since it is Steele's refutation of Dispensationalism, the popular End Times teaching in our day. His objections center, however, on the way Dispensational teachings undermine the call to Christian holiness.
I have also included — as Appendix 5 — Dr. Steele's essay "Why I Am Not a Premillenialist." This is believed to be Dr. Steele's last published essay. It appeared in The Methodist Review, Vol. 93 (May, 1911): 405-415. This essay was discovered by Dr. Vic Reasoner. I found it at the IMARC site. It appears here with their knowledge and permission.
