1 Bruce Lawrence, Defenders of God (San Francisco: Harper and Row, 1989) pp. 100,101. Lawrence's careful research (!) allows him to speak of "premillennial and postmillennial dispensationalists," defining the latter as those who hold that "believers will be saved. . . after the final tribulation on earth" (p. 24).
2 Martin E. Marty and R. Scott Appleby, Fundamentalisms Observed (Chicago: Chicago Univ. Press, 1991) vol. 1, pp. ix,x. Much to the chagrin of Meredith Kline, R.J. Rushdoony, and Gary North, this volume claims that Cornelius "Van Til developed the idea of `theonomy'" (p. 50).
