After thinking about the possible contents for the book over several weeks, Donald Mitchell was surprised to be awakened at 1:30 a.m. on May 19, 2009, by a voice that dictated to him in great detail what should be in this book. This dictation continued for many hours and finally paused for him to begin asking clarifying questions, which were then answered. The instruction lasted over six hours.
In the Introduction, Mitchell notes, "From that experience, I believe that by writing this book I am merely serving as a fleshly vehicle for a message from the Holy Spirit that is intended for all people on Earth. I pray that I have been faithful and accurate in sharing with you what I was directed to write."

Donald Mitchell repented his sins and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord in 1959. In 1995, Donald Mitchell was called by the Holy Spirit to began an audacious task: Demonstrate ways for the whole world to make 400 years worth of normal improvements in the 20 years between 2015 and 2035, a task he calls the 400 Year Project. The results could be as dramatic for humanity as going from sending smoke signals to watching videos sent via cell phones and email had been for extending communications. With guidance from the Holy Spirit, advice from management guru Peter Drucker, direction from clients, and assistance from talented colleagues and students, the project has identified many breakthrough solutions which meet the project's goals.
