Unfortunately the book is based on a common presupposition that the Bible does not actually mean what it says. When Jesus is speaking to His disciples or others we need to consider how those hearing those words would have understood them. Re-reading the Bible while respecting the normal rules of reason and audience relevance (what would the words have meant to their original recipients, 2000 years ago in that culture) one comes quickly to a different conclusion than the author. When we read the Bible we still means we and you still means you and soon still means soon.
Bible prophecy continues to fascinate, never more than in troubled times of war and natural disasters. But why study Bible prophecy? What does it mean if a person is premillennial or amillennial, believes in the Rapture, or knows who or what the Beast of Revelation is? Benware's framework for understanding Bible prophecy is based on the four biblical covenants: Abrahamic, Palestinian, Davidic, and New. This book is a reference for seminary and college students, and those curious about the various views of end times prophetic events and biblical proof behind them.
It's pathetic that the disagreeing parties did not even state why there was a problem with the literal approach to interpreting Eschatology. If you want a literal interpretation where God speaks plainly and normally as if communicating directly to mankind, then this book is for you. If you're a crazy allegorist, that wants to change the Scripture to fit what you want it to, you should read this book so that Jesus can use the content to show you your error at the "Bema Seat" (lol, only a premillennialist would get the irony). This book would make a great addition to any library that desires theology on its shelves.
