The book is the outworking of the author's life emphasis. Throughout his ministry Arnold Frank emphasized the holiness of God and the need to give him proper reverence. He then began to highlight each passage in Scripture where it dealt with the subject. This eventually culminated in his Ph.D. study in the doctrine, and subsequently the book.
The book is filled with insight from the Puritans and gives practical expression to this doctrine that is virtually extinct in our contemporary context.
