The book of Daniel is key to the entire Old Testament prophetic revelation. Who better to help you understand Daniel's stories, prophecies, and dreams—and give you a brighter hope for things to come—than John F. Walvoord, one of evangelicalism's most prominent leaders, and Charles Dyer, a Bible professor and expert on Israel?
In this second work of a renewed series of commentaries, Dr. Walvoord addresses alleged historical inaccuracies and considers past and future fulfillments of specific prophecies. At key points different views and approaches to interpretation are explored. Walvoord devotes special attention to textual and doctrinal issues while avoiding technical language.
Refined, updated with the English Standard Version (ESV), and streamlined, this classic text is set to help you understand and interpret the book of Daniel and gain a better grasp of what the future may bring.
IMO this book is not for the average layperson.
Instead of just giving the author's perception and letting the reader decide if they agreed or not, it went into extensive explanations of critics' views. By the time I finished reading all the different views, I was so confused, I couldn't understand what the author's opinion was. It also used so many unusual words, I had to look up definitions all through the book. This book was really challenging to read and definitely academically stretching. I read Walvoord's Prophecy Commentaries on Revelation and on I & II Thessalonians and thoroughly enjoyed them; but this one might not have been the best choice for me. I also have the Prophecy Commentary on Matthew. I'm hoping I don't have as much trouble with it.
