This book is a challenge to many of the staunchly held beliefs within Christendom, namely covenant theology, pretersism, and millennialism. As a dispensationalist, I take issue with much of what has been taught over the centuries. The Reformation brought us out of the Catholic stronghold, but I contend that not enough change was made. Dispensational theology began to emerge in the early 19th century. This was the beginning of further reform, but still, much more reform was needed. In the late 19th century and throughout the 20th century, more and more of the long held beliefs concerning Israel, the kingdom of God, and end-time events were emerging. Today, through an advanced dispensational hermeneutic, much progress has been made in Biblical understanding. So much so that many of the centuries old ideas no longer hold up to scrutiny as a viable means to knowing what God would have us know from the book He saw fit to provide for us.
