The book can also be used as a teaching resource that helps believers and seekers to more clearly understand our times in the larger story of the battle of Kingdoms, and how life under the Lordship of Christ is true freedom. Ben-Hur heard Jesus say, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.” The words pierced his heart and drove him to his knees. Ben-Hur surrendered to a new king and his kingdom. Renouncing his citizenship in the City of Man, he changed sides in the war of kingdoms. By his testimony, Ben-Hur dethroned Caesar as king and god on earth – in his heart, and in the world. Each believer is called to do the same. From the Introduction by Dr. Marshall Foster, President, World History Institute: "Ben-Hur is a story of the triumph of true faith and God's love over a seemingly unstoppable tyrannical empire. We see one man coming face to face with the loving God of creation who chose to come into the world, not to judge it, but that it might be saved. This story has been repeated hundreds of millions of time as people have experienced the transforming power of the risen Lord. It inspires us with hope that even in our time of great worldwide distress, the gates of hell shall not prevail against His church."
