Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Through Daniel's visions and experiences as an exile in Babylon, the book of Daniel gives us a clearer understanding of history than any other part of the Bible. Daniel also makes it clear that God is in control of all human events that have unfolded or will occur in the future. At the same time, he shows us how to live for God in ungodly days-like our own.

In this volume of James Montgomery Boice's popular commentary series, pastors, Bible students, and laypersons will find analysis of Daniel's illuminating insights into history. Boice explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and subject by subject. Its clear language and approachable style make this commentary accessible and enlightening. Within the pages are important lessons on:

-God's control over history
-God's control over rulers
-perseverance in faith
-the sin God will not tolerate
-the coming of the Messiah
-living for God amidst opposition


James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was also president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour, on which Boice was a speaker for more than thirty years. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This commentary on Daniel is concise. It does a very good job of keeping the reader focused on two main topics, mainly the topic of people of God living in an ungodly world such as Daniel in Babylon, and the topic of the prophecies as revealed in the book of Daniel. The comentary also does a very good job of relating the various parts of the book of Daniel, such as the vision of the statue of various types of metal compared to the vision of the animals. And I especially liked the dealing with the prophecy of the coming Anointed One and the seventy "sevens"; the commentary did not go into elaborate detail, which can be very interesting but which might be out of place in a commentary such as this which is concise; the high level presentation of three different possibilities and their calculations of the seventy "sevens" was well done.

You can't go wrong with any expositional commentary written by Dr. Boice. I especially appreciate his honesty. He obviously is from a reformed background, but in terms of his eschatology and his own interpretation, he often gives credence the viewpoints of premillenialism.
Daniel is a difficult book to study but Dr. Boice is able to break it down in such a way that it is easy to grasp and see the big picture through out.

The best description of this commentary on Daniel is -I think- the one offered to the author himself by one of the elders of his church: "Instead of going into all the minuted details of these profecies the way some do ... you've tried to extract the main principles and apply them to our lives now."

I thank the author for the clarity of his exposition, his humility when -sometimes- announcing that his interpratation may be wrong, and his bringing the text to our modern lives. As for the events announced and that have been fulfilled, this is a good survey; as for those events that are yet to be fulfilled the author does not speculate but sets clear demarcation marks between the former and the latter.

I also appreciated this book for the concise and clear way that historical facts were presented as the chapters in this prophetic book of Daniel progressed.

If you are looking for a clear concise analysis of Daniel, then this is the book for you. It is a good book and he gives you direct interpretations. To this extent I was a little disappointed for I have heard and read some of his other material and he gave quite extensive details and explanations. My wife and I are studying Daniel, Olivet Discourse and Revelation over the last few years, so I purchased this book and Walvoord's Daniel Commentary to help us more thououghly understand. Both books are are good but Walvoord, is way more detailed, giving conservative and liberal understanding with his final summation.

It didn't quite meet my expectations. I was looking for something to supplement the Bible commentaries I use for developing my adult Bible study Sunday school lessons. This is more a study guide, but I think will give me some beneficial insight into the Biblical material and how it relates to us today.

I love Boice's commentaries. He always explained to the common reader. Too bad he is gone, but this writings will go on forever.

This is a very readable treatment of the Book of Daniel. It is accessible, yet certainly much more than a surface study. The book thoroughly explores the historical, political, and theological aspects of this key book of the Bible in understanding the prophetic picture, as well as making practical application for the Christian living in a hostile political-social climate. It's relatively recent publishing date makes the book a good resource to go alongside the Daniel commentaries that have stood the test of time for decades and even centuries. I highly recommend it.
