Daniel BCC - 11/28/11

Revised Edition of John F. Walvoord's Commentary


[sidebar] This Walvoord masterpiece presents the beauties of Daniel's prophecies in the light of modern archeological evidence. Companion to his commentary on Revelation, this major contribution to prophetic research has now been updated and expanded by Philip E. Rawley and Charles H. Dyer. Now using the English Standard Version (ESV), the commentary text has been streamlined and refined.

[body copy]

This expositional commentary on Daniel is accurate, up-to-date, and readable. Daniel goes beyond a mere presentation of the author's interpretation of Old Testament prophecy. It quotes Bible scholars from various corners of the theological ring to help the reader discover the meaning of Scripture for themselves.

This major contribution to prophetic research emphasizes the value and genuineness of Daniel. It considers:

Alleged historical inaccuracies

Difficult-to-interpret phrases

Apocryphal additions

Use of Persian and Greek words

Historical background of Bible events

Past and future fulfillments of specific prophecies

Any pastor or teacher of Daniel will appreciate this unusually thorough and well outlined commentary that captures the heartbeat of a young prophet who spoke boldly for God.
