Is this Dispensationalism?

Can you identify from what source this quote is drawn?
It seems that Paul envisaged the "church" as co-existing in close relation to, but also distinct from historic Israel until such times as Israel may be fully restored. Paul's view of Jews and gentiles is that they remain distinct entities, a distinction that abides, even though all is relativized in Chirst . . . Paul would never confuse Israel and the gentiles, so that although in God's purposes, the two are intertwined and closely related, they remain related but separate entities.
Darrell Bock, Progressive Dispensationalism
William Campbell, Paul and the Creation of Christian Identity

This is most definitely Campbell, not Bock.

You're right, but it sounds very similar to something a dispensationalist would say.

So, Dr. Bird, what is the signficance of this? (I googled Campbell and got hardly any hits or comments. Nothing in Amazon either).
