The first half of the book is taken up describing the eschatalogical system of the Bible. Particular detail is placed on contrasting the amillennial and pre-millennial/dispensational lines of arguments. It is clear that Dr. Waldron has had many disputes with dispensationalists and he sets up his arguments on a firm foundation. In particular, he outlines his hermeneutical framework on how to interpret the Bible (i.e. how we know what we know) along a rational line. My personal view is that even once you make the leap of faith to accept that Christ died to save mankind, you are still a long way from the dispensational position and you need to be wearing your dispensational glasses to interpret the Bible in this manner.
Subsequent chapters deal with `What is Hell', `Is there a difference between national Isreal and biblical Israel' (this is a biggie for people like Hagee who claim that his interpretation of the Bible demands that the US govt support national Israel no matter what), `what is Heaven', and `what does the Bible teach about the resurrection'. In short, there is a wealth of information in this book about the interpretation of the Bible (as it has been interpreted historically by the Catholic church and otherwise since the resurrection).
In spite of the title, this is anything but simple. You'll have to reread sections several times, and you'll certainly need your Bible handy to look at various passages and study them in context. This is the kind of book that contains a mountain of information in every paragraph, but your persistance will be well rewarded with new insights and knowledge about the Bible. This is not a book for theologians though, I think that anyone with the interest and motivation can work through this book. Highly recommended.
