Leading Dispensationalist Theologian, Author Dies At Age 90

Dr. Charles C. Ryrie, the famed dispensationalist theologian and editor of The Ryrie Study Bible, has died at the age of 90.


According to his obituary posted by the Dallas Theological Seminary, "Dr. Ryrie taught Systematic Theology at Dallas Theological Seminary before serving as dean of doctoral studies for more than two decades until his retirement in 1983."

Dr. Ryrie, who wrote more than 50 books, is best known for The Ryrie Study Bible, which sold more than 2.5 million copies.

Dallas Theological Seminary President Mark Bailey wrote that, "Dr. Ryrie was a master at biblical and theological synthesis. He had the unusually rare gift of being able to state complex theological ideas in succinct statements. All of us are indebted to his efforts to articulate and defend dispensational premillennialism.”

According to Christianity Today, Dr. Ryrie was considered a leading theologian who helped stabilize dispensationalism.

Former Dr. Ryrie student and current president of Keep Believing Ministries Ray Prichard says, “I think his greatest gift was making abstract ideas understandable. Anyone can make the simple complex. Only the greatest minds can make the complex simple.”

Details of his death were not readily available. Please pray for comfort for Dr. Ryrie's loved ones.
