Then, Longman's approach transformed our entire study. It was wonderful. My top-notch Bible student (98) thanked me literally with tears in his eyes, "I've studied this a hundred times, and you got it right. Thank you."
No, thanks Professor Longman. His exegesis of the first half of that chapter transforms everything.
BTW, the reviewer from Florida who wants more depth and breadth on the second half of the chapter and the rest of Daniel--and the OT--will want to get that (and MUCH more) by reading "God Is a Warrior," Longman's outstanding treatment of that motif through the whole Bible--with Dan Reid. I'm sure that's a plenary approach the reviewer would entirely appreciate. My humble suggestion.
The commentary is arranged by chapters and contains sections on the original meaning of the text, the context in relation to the whole Bible, and contemporary significance of the text. His writing is easy to comprehend and pleasant to read. The book would work equally well as reference or as a group Bible study.
Longman is solidly reformed. He resists the temptation to use the prophesy in Daniel to set specific dates for the end-times. In fact, he has publicly debated Harold Camping on just this issue. Although not directly addressed, his traditional approach effectively answers the error promoted by dispensationalists.
