Kindle Books: Preview vs. Full Version

Concerning this (currently free) Kindle book:

Amazon.com: Edge of Apocalypse eBook: Tim LaHaye, Craig Parshall: Kindle Store

A number of user reviews say that this is a preview edition (that is, not the full book), yet I downloaded it, and it certainly seems like the full book.

Do you think that it was a preview in the past, but now is the full version? Are preview versions always clearly labeled as such?

I looked at the publisher's website for this title (Zondervan - Search) and the ebook version of that title is $0, so it likely is the full length version and not a preview edition.

It's number 2 on the Top Ten Free in the Kindle store:

Amazon.com Kindle Store Bestsellers: The most popular items on Amazon.com (Updated hourly)

If the publisher wanted to boost sales, it worked.

Is that book likely to have religious content?

One of the things I like about my Kindle is that I am not intimidated by very thick books because the Kindle hides this from me. I am reading Trollope, and many of his books are very long. But my Kindle just shows me a page at a time and I happily work my way through it, not knowing how many more pages await me.

I feel like I learn a great deal from it, as well as enjoy it very much.
