"Im a pastor, not a scholar. When you read Iain Duguid, it is clear he is both. Like his other works, this commentary is a rare blend of insightful exegesis and discerning application. Whats more, with Iains guidance youll find the glories of Christ shining through texts that can otherwise appear obscure and irrelevant. This book will educate pastors, edify Christians, and advance the proclamation of the gospel." --C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries
"It is rare indeed to find a technical scholar who is also a master homiletician and preacher. But these things Dr. Iain Duguid clearly is. Here, rigorous expository methodology, nuanced biblical theology, and pastoral passion combine to expound the gospel of Jesus Christ in the ravishing narrative and exotic apocalyptic of the book of Daniel. Readers will be grateful for the reverence and care given to the sacred text, plus the wise application to today's church midst her Babylons. This is a must-read for anyone desiring to understand and live in the dazzling light of Daniel. Warmly commended." --R. Kent Huhges, College Church, Wheaton, IL
"Here is exposition modeled by pastors with scholarly gifts and by scholars with pastors hearts. Exegetical and theological reliability, redemptive-historical sensitivity, a Christ-centered focus, and contemporary practical applicationthese are the promised hallmarks of the series. May it serve as a model to encourage and enthuse a new generation to love the Word of God and to rediscover the life-transforming power of expository preaching! --Sinclair Ferguson, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, SC

I am becoming a big fan of Iain Duguid. His commentaries are very readable for both laymen and clergy. I always look for commentaries that I can recommend to the people who teach our Adult Bible Fellowships. This is one of them.
I enjoyed reading this so much that I skipped my usual pattern of a chapter a day, instead I finished it in two days. Now I'm going back and really working on thinking through the things Iain points out. He has a very refreshing perspective on Daniel. He keeps Christ in the center of his discussions. He keeps reminding you that Daniel and his friends were just ordinary everyday people who God used in a mighty way because they were available and willing to be used.
The challenge you will receive very pointedly from Duguid is this, if faced with death because of your belief in Jesus Christ and your worship of Him, how would you respond? Would you be as diplomatic as Daniel was with the King's henchman? Would you be as calm as Daniel and his three friends when you are being unfairly lumped with other scholars whom you actually happen to disagree with? Are you as confident as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego that your God will rescue you from the fiery furnace, but even if he does not, you want the King to know that you will not serve other gods or worship the graven imagine of the King?
In today's culture we face many idols that are as deadly as the statue that King Nebuchadnezzar had constructed and forced people to worship. We are pushed to worship money, possessions, rock stars, politicians, political causes, etc. What is the idol that you are being pushed to worship that is taking the place of Jesus Christ? Duguid does a great job of tying the Old Testament Book of Daniel into our daily lives and helping us see the relevance.
I could go on, but won't. Suffice it to say, this short commentary on Daniel will be the first one I recommend to others when they are starting their study of Daniel.
So, why didn't I give it five stars? Well, I can't put a finger on it. I think there could have been a little more depth in some sections, but that's just my desire. You will love this book.
This is not a exegetical commentary by any stretch of the imagination. It is based on messages that Duguid preached while a pastor. Still, in reading the chapters and his comments, one can gain an excellent framework from which to build an understanding of each chapter within Daniel.
I would recommend this book for those seeking a better and more accurate understanding of Daniel and are seeking a foundation upon which to build their overall understanding of the book.
