In this volume, Chafer examines the phrase, “the kingdom,” and what it means in context of Scripture, life for the Christian, politics, and future events. Chafer looks at both Old and New Testament passages to discover what the Bible has to say about how to live in light of God’s Kingdom. In a systematic yet conversational tone, Chafer leads the reader through the Scriptures in a solid and theological view of this sometimes mysterious topic. The reader will understand the context and more of the implications of this doctrine.
No subject was more dear to the heart of Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer than the teaching of the Scriptures on the spiritual life.

I welcome therefore this present book on these fundamental truths. Having had the privilege of seeing it in manuscript, I bespeak for it the candid attention of all who are concerned for the truth of God.
—C.I. Scofield, in the preface to the 1936 edition of The Kingdom in History and Prophecy
I am glad of the privilege of calling attention to a presentation of the way of salvation which is certain to lead all who read it earnestly to a living faith in Christ, and then to a constant joy because of the abundant and assured provision of God for the Christian life.
—W. H. Griffith Thomas, in the preface to the 1917 edition of Salvation
