Rev. Clarence Larkin (1850–1924) was an American Baptist pastor, Bible teacher and author whose writings on Dispensationalism had a great impact on conservative Protestant visual culture in the 20th century. His intricate and influential charts provided readers with a visual strategy for mapping God’s action in history and for interpreting complex biblical prophecies.
Dispensational Truth -Book
The book is the result of 30 years’ study of “Dispensational Truth.” It is sane. Not a “Time Setter.” Contains no Speculative Matter. Is not made up of quotations from other writers, but is based on the Scripture from the “Futurist” standpoint. It is of permanent value, and continues to be a standard authority on “Dispensational Truth.” It is a mine of information on “Prophetic Truth” for busy pastor, evangelists, Bible teacher, and all lovers of the Word. The book is said by leading Prophetical Scholars to be the Greatest Book on “Dispensational Truth” in the World.
The book contains 34 chapters of the descriptive matter. It also contains 42 splendid prophetical black & white charts, 9 x 20 inches, 48 one-page charts, and 15 cuts. The charts and cuts are interspersed through the descriptive matter where they belonged. There are 300 columns of reading matter, each column 4.5 x 8.5 inches, equivalent to an ordinary book of 450 pages. The charts are unique, simple, clear, and uniform in style and present every phase of “Dispensational Truth.” The book is bound in cloth, atlas form, size 10 x 10.5 inches, and the large charts spread over two pages.
The Book of Revelation – Book
This book is the result of 25 years’ study of the Book of Revelation. The book is interpreted from the Futurist Standpoint. The writer’s purpose is to show that the book is to be taken literally and that it is written in chronological order. The text of the old version is used and is printed at the top of each subject. The text and descriptive matters are emphasized by the use of capitals and black type.
The book is sane, contains no speculative matter, nor opinions of the writer. The book is not a commentary made up of quotations from other writers. The writer is neither a copyist nor compiler. The only author the writer has sought to follow is the author of the Book, the Lord Jesus Christ. He has simply sought to interpret the “Mind of Christ,” as revealed in the Book of Revelation. The writer’s aim has been to prepare a standard work on the Book of Revelation, from the Futurist Standpoint that can be used as a textbook in Theological Seminaries and Bible Schools, and a help to Ministers, Missionaries and Bible Students generally. This work is particularly timely when the prophetic utterances of the Book of Revelation are rapidly approaching their fulfillment.
Rightly Dividing the Word – Book
This book compares in value with the book on “Dispensational Truth.” Its purpose is to “Rightly Divide” the “Fundamental Doctrines” in a series of “Contrasts,” as “Law and Grace,” “Faith and Works,” “Sin and Salvation,” “Atonement and Redemption,” etc. It has been described as one of the “most enlightening books on scripture ever written.”
The author had made it the work of his ministry to preach the “Fundamentals.” This volume contains the cream and meat of his sermons and Bible lectures. The book contains twenty-nine chapters and fifty-five charts. The charts are one page charts, clear and simple, and suitable for Bible Class work. The book contains 328 pages and is bound in cloth.

Having received many requests for this book from Pastors and Bible Students in many lands, Rev. Clarence Larkin, though suffering in body, yet strong in spirit, pressed on till this Book of Daniel was completed, then His loving Savior and Lord said, “Come home and rest with me.”
Throughout this work, Rev. Larkin has managed to provide an Exposition of The Book of Daniel in an easily readable way. He has helped to provide a roadmap through complex Biblical prophecy.
