Steinmann rightly sees Daniel more than an eschatological ramp for speculation on millenium ideas, but rather Christ preserving a people for Himself through captivity and thereby pointing them to Christ's first advent, and us to His second.
Thus, the import of this book for the present: the strong, frequent NT statements from this prophet of "Son of man coming with the clouds."
There is much strength and comfort to be gained from this careful and meticulous work, including his own translation and commentary which stresses incarnational and sacramental theology at its base. As well, he has fine excursus on topics such as dispensationalism, four-kingdom schema, and Lutheran Confessions on the Antichrist in Daniel, among others.
This is fine, careful, scholarly work which chooses to interact with other interpretations and challenge them with philology, grammar, history, etc. Since there are so many familiar, miraculous stories in this Major Prophetic book, Steinmann has a joyous chore before him of finding both the Law and the blessed Gospel of Christ to separate and proclaim. He does this masterfully in this helpful and detailed resource for the church.
I look forward to mining this for all its worth for Christ's children! You will too, so get one and use it.
