When the invention of the printing press revolutionized the world and made the bible available to just about every one that wanted a copy the Catholic Church had a problem. So they invented doctrines such as the preterus point of view to draw focus away from Rome in the end times.
It would help the author's credibility if he were at least somewhat accurate historically. The Amillenial(what the autor calls--preterus, a mispelling) view was one held by many in the early church after the 2nd century, and wasn't concocted by the Roman church as he asserts.

Out of the preterus point of view came the post and mid tribulation doctrines as well.
The historical premil position and post-mil positions have also been ones supported by various early church fathers, so his history is terribly inaccurate again.

The only view that is supported by the scriptures is the pre-tribulation.
A dubious claim at best.
