Daniel BCC – 11/28/11
Revised Edition of John F. Walvoord’s Commentary
[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.
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
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.

I read this book over 30 years ago, when I was a teenager, and it's tone and methodology has permeated my life every since. I am now a Bible teacher myself and have come back to this book when I wish to give an over-view of the book of Daniel to my students.
Of the tons of books I've read dealing with Daniel, none can compare with Walvoord's scholarship and insight. If you want to understand Daniel, you must read this book carefully.

The early Christians relied heavily on Daniel. Which is why there are so many liberals scholars who attack Daniel, especially the dating of Daniel.
Walvoord responds to their criticisms, one by one, demolishing them utterly.
"The denial that the book was in existence in the sixth century BC disregards the three citations referring to Daniel in Ezekiel" (p 10). Liberal scholars try to get around these citations by insisting they refer to a different Daniel.
However, the Daniel they refer to worshiped Baal.
The discoveries at Qumran has tended to push the dating for many of the books of the Old Testament. And it has done so also for Daniel.
"The evidence against the canonicity of Daniel is without support" (p 21) today.
Some liberal scholars refuse to believe that apocalyptic works were known in the 6th century BC. Walvoord points out this "is of course answered by the contemporary work of Ezekiel" (p 21).
As for the unending number of textual problems liberal scholars claim to see, Walvoord points out that they contradict one another, "testifying to the subjective character of these criticism" (p 22).
Some liberal scholars cite historical inaccuracies. However, they never note "that it would be most unusual for a writer in the second century BC to have had intimate knowledge of Babylonian history" (p 23) as, clearly, the author of Daniel does.
A very fine book of scholarship, and written so that it is accessible for anyone interested in the subject.

Clear, readable and not technical. I like that the Scripture is given within the text before the commentary. I bought Thessalonians and Revelation after reading this one.Published 3 months ago by weebil
For those who subscribe to the "pre-trib" position, this is an excellent resource. It is not an easy read, but it is absolutely worth the effort. I highly recommend this book.Published 4 months ago by Bob S
