The author argues that Christians in America are best classified as being in "exile", referring to the time in the OT when the Israelites (Jews) lived as refugees under the power of the Babylonian Empire. Realizing this situation, the author focuses on Bible passages that speak to us in this time (Isaiah 40-55 is the main one) and gives ideas on how to teach, preach and do ministry in our current situation.
