A.W. Tozer was brought up in the "Moody" camp, where Darby's theory of Dispensationalism had been widely accepted. Having for himself avidly studied the Scriptures and come into a personal knowledge of salvation, Tozer realised that Dispensationalism was not only inconsistent with the teaching of the Bible, but downright contrary to it. Tozer, therefore, denounced Dispensationalism as heresy, and Scofield's Bible as "one of the greatest spiritual disasters ever to hit the Christian Church in the 20th. Century".
Scofield, along with his many devious deceptions, conferred upon himself the title of "doctor of Divinity".
It was considered so heretical that some church leaders in the UK had public burnings of the Scofield Bible.
