Daniel BCC - 11/28/11

 

Revised Edition of John F. Walvoord's Commentary

DANIEL

[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.

About the Author

JOHN F. WALVOORD (A.B., D.D., Wheaton College; A.M., Texas Christian University; Th.B., Th.M., Th.D., Dallas Theological Seminary), former president of Dallas Theological Seminary and editor of Bibliotheca Sacra, America's oldest theological quarterly, was recognized as one of the leading evangelical theologians in America and an authority on systematic theology and eschatology. His academic background and extensive travel in the Middle East greatly enriched his theological and eschatological studies. He authored numerous books on theology and biblical prophecy, including The Revelation of Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ Our Lord, and Daniel: The Key to Prophetic Revelation.

CHARLES DYER (B.A., Washington Bible College; Th.M. and Ph.D., Dallas Theological Seminary) served for ten years as Provost of Moody Bible Institute before becoming Professor-at-Large of Bible and host of The Land and the Book radio program. He is the author of numerous books, including A Voice in the Wilderness, Character Counts: The Power of Personal Integrity, and Thirty Days in the Land with Jesus. His most recent books are Matthew and Daniel, two revisions of classic commentaries by Dr. John F. Walvoord. Charlie and his wife, Kathy, have been married for more than 39 years and have two grown children.

More About the Author

No single intellectual voice contributed more to the development of modern biblical prophecy than Dr. John F. Walvoord. During his six-decade-long career as an author, pastor, teacher, and educator, Dr. Walvoord articulated a comprehensive view of biblical prophecy that was based on his rock-solid belief that all the prophecies in the Bible either have been, or will be, literally fulfilled.

Dr. Walvoord began his teaching career as a professor of theology at Dallas Theological Seminary in 1936. In 1952, after the death of Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer, the seminary's founder and first president, Dr. Walvoord became president and built it into a formidable graduate school of theology. In 1986, after serving Dallas Theological Seminary for 50 years, Dr. Walvoord became chancellor.

From the beginning of his professional career, Dr. Walvoord spoke and wrote about biblical prophecy in light of current world events. Even before the world believed there could be a Jewish return to the Holy Land or a nation of Israel, Dr. Walvoord insisted that a new Jewish state would emerge and that no one, whether it be the British, the Palestinians, or the Arab nations, could stop this inevitable fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

Before the Arab-Israeli wars of the 1960s, Dr. Walvoord maintained that Israel would win more land and power. He saw God's plan for the end-time begin to unfold as the Palestinian-Israeli conflict became the focus of NATO and Western leaders. He taught that soon all the nations of the world would be embroiled in conflict leading to the events prophesied in the books of Daniel and Revelation.

Walvoord's studies led him to author, coauthor, or edit more than 50 books on Bible prophecy. One, "Armageddon, Oil, and the Middle East Crisis," became an international best seller in 1974. This work was later revised and expanded in 1990 during the Gulf War with Iraq. More than 2 million copies of this work are in print, and it has been translated into 10 languages. This work proved the value of biblical prophecy in explaining world events.

Dr. Walvoord believed that the events of September 11, 2001, were the opening salvo to acts of sacred terror in the name of jihad that would push the world to the brink of destruction. In addition, he sensed that weapons of mass destruction would proliferate and force the West into preemptive military strikes. The need for oil would require massive military intervention to protect the oil fields of the Middle East.

Viewing current events through the lens of biblical prophecy, he believed it was evident that soon--very soon--the world would be engulfed in a terror never before imagined. In 2002, he began working on a new book to help make sense out of the confusing events that filled the headlines. From that unfinished work--and his classic "Armageddon, Oil, and the Middle East Crisis"--comes "Armageddon, Oil, and Terror."

I have read some of Walvoord's other books and found him t be thorough. My wife and I have been studying Daniel, Matthew 24-25 and Reveltion for a few years now, along with reading the Bible each year. To get a more thourough understanding of Revelation, you should understand Daniel and Matthew 24-25. To this end it has been a great book. If you want to know all the various philosophies of both conservative and liberal Christians, it is a great book. He tells you what all these various people think then gives you his conclusions. So far I have found his thought process to be right on.

Well written with excellent coverage of Daniel's prophecies. I read this many years ago, under the title "Daniel: The Key to Prophetic Revelation", but lost my copy in a fire. I ordered this to replace that book but have more content due to revision and editing by Charles H. Dyer and Philip E. Rawley. Glad to have it in my library for continual referencing prophecy. Recommend.

Walvoord clearly explains the Book of Daniel. His explanations are clear and easy to understand. I like the fact that he includes all of the opinions on a text and clearly defends his own opinions.

Walvoord's work is a wonderful, thorough commentary that covers all the bases beginning at establishing the veracity of the book - Daniel IS the author - and continuing with the prophet's prophecies proven in time and trusted in time yet to come. Get it. Read it. Be blessed.

I have read a lot of the expository commentaries written by this author and I highly recommend them all. Daniel is essential reading for anyone studying prophesy and Walvoord really opens up the word in easy to understand language. I particularly liked how he shows in history the fulfilment of many of the visions.
