Resources for the study of Dispensationalism

This post is more for my own benefit than anything else. But if, by chance, my study on the nature of the Kingdom interested you, I thought I would post a list of valuable resources for further reading about the many different issues and implications in the controversy surrounding Dispensationalism vs. Covenantalism. If you have other excellent resources to recommend, I’d be happy to hear about them.

And now for a very long list of other resources (mainly books, but with some online articles as well) that could be very useful for the further study of dispensationalism:
