Mr. de Kock is a Seventh Day Adventist. This book presents the position of the Seventh Day Adventists from the view of the author.
This book has several sections of moderately detailed history. First the period of the Babylonian captivity of the Jewish people when Daniel interpreted a dream for Nebuchadrezzar saving the Jewish people. The interpretation of the prophetic Biblical Book of Daniel is introduced and is the greatest influence on the rest of this book.
The time of early Christianity is described in detail, as is the early papacy and how the papacy is not a correct biblical institution... actually how most organized Christianity is not biblically correct. De Kock describes the situation in the late Roman Empire including details of the East/West division and also the various Germanic tribes and how they impacted Rome and Chrisitanity including the fact that many of those tribes were Arian christians (much to the disgust and dismay of Roman Christians.
There are several parts which include more modern history, and a whole added chapter on the European Union, which de Kock believes cannot continure to exist as described in a Biblical prophecy.
