In this book about the eventful history of the Ark of the covenant, light is shed on the meaning of the Ark for the people of God in this present dispensation of grace. The author draws parallels between the Old and the New Testament. What is important in all this is that the history of Israel is rendered as of current interest to us. It is emphasized that 'whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope' (Romans 15:4).

The allegorical interpretation of the Bible has its basis in Scripture itself. The many details relating to the journey of the Ark of the Covenant are not given merely to satisfy the curiosity of historians and archaeologists. In the Scriptures referred to we find ourselves amidst those things of which it is written, 'Now these things became our examples' (1 Corinthians 10:6).
