2011 Reprint of the 1918 edition. Our edition reproduces the numerous illustrations, maps and charts in full size, so that all text is legible. Larkin believed that God laid it on his heart to prepare a work on Dispensational Truth (or God's Plan and Purpose in the Ages), illustrated with many maps, charts and descriptive matter. After more than three years efforts, mostly designing and drawing the charts and illustrations, the book was extremely well received in 1918 and remains to this day a much used spiritual guide. As a result of its success and wide circulation, the first edition was soon sold out, and subsequently followed by a second edition, and later, with a revised edition.
