This work aims at being the most Biblically consistent and accurate chronology for the period of creation to the time of the birth of Christ. Holland proposes a sure Biblical map of time from the birth of Terah, the father of Abraham, to the last year of the reign of king Zedekiah. One of the most important finds presented is the discovery of the precise nature of the luni-solar calendar system, which the ancient Israelites and Egyptians must have followed. The author shows how the tools of time-reckoning can be used to compute numbers of days between some events, based on the discovered calendar coupled with Biblical references. There is one area which may be controversial. Holland tries to show the correctness of the relative time spans of Harold Camping's Genesis chronologies. The author corrects the precise timing; so for example Camping dates the Flood in the year 4990 BC, but the author finds that it occurred in 4985 BC, but both Holland and Camping agree that the Flood occurred in the year 6023 from Creation. Holland maintains that he has found the best possible solution to anchor BC chronology to our modern calendar by discovering when the Jubilee years occurred. Holland believes he has found sufficient reason to place a Jubilee year coincident with the year 1 BC, but there is not an absolute proof offered. The Jubilee year most likely would have occurred after 8 BC but before 2 AD, based on when scholars believe the Exodus occurred (after 1448 BC but before 1439 BC). Chapter 8 deals with eschatology, and is presented as theoretical to avoid seeming controversial. Appendix A lists Bible chapters known to have something to do with eschatology.
