The author's take on Babylon makes sense. Though the ancient city of Babylon lies in ruins, it is rising from its own ashes through modern efforts carried on by the World Monument Fund (WMF) as well as others. Saddam Hussein made great strides with Babylon's resurrection, even referring to himself as "son of Nebuchadnezzar."
It appears that the Babylon of old will yet rise again and become a world-renowned city. It makes sense considering Genesis 11 and the Tower of Babel (which WMF believes they've located the foundation of that ziggurat just outside Babylon proper). God is going to finish and destroy the future physical Babylon with finality during the coming days.
Author Charles Dyer's work - though rather short - is still comprehensive. The table of contents is as follows:
1. Why Do Protestants Interpret Babylon Spiritually?
2. What Happened to Babylon Historically?
3. What Does the Bible Say about Babylon?
5. Study Guide: Why Does Babylon Matter Today?
Dyer provides complete answers for each question. Much of the problem with today's allegorical interpretation regarding Babylon (and other areas of Bible prophecy), goes back to the days of Augustine and his allegorical interpretation of much of the prophetic areas of Scripture. This interpretation became the foundation for the way Roman Catholicism interprets prophesy, which carried over into many protestant denominations even as they broke away from Catholicism..
The goal of everyone who studies the Bible should be to uncover God's meaning, not what we might think He is saying, but what He actually means. Dyer makes a great case for a physical, literal Babylon that will appear during the last days of this current age, just prior to the physical return of Jesus to this earth.
The book comes with a teacher's guide for those who may want to use it in group study.
