Customer Review

on December 21, 2008
While some of Newton's theories regarding Daniel and Revelation were very good, the inclusion of Latin text was a major disappointment for me!
If you are a layperson like myself,the Latin serves no purpose.Now if a reader can read Latin, that may be a plus for them.

There were however, some highlights in the book that I gleaned.

Mr. Newton connects the four living creatures(in Newton's day they were referred to as "beasts")of Ezekiel and Revelation to the 12 tribes of Israel. He recognizes the faces of the creatures as symbols employed by the tribes in their encampment standards.Judah- a Lion, Ephraim- a Bull or ox, Dan- an Eagle, Reuben- a Man. On page 132 he wrote,"Whence were framed the heiroglyphicks of cherubims and seraphims to represent the people of Israel."

He defines the differences between cherubim and seraphim.

The author also provides a thoughtful argument against Antiochus Epiphanes being the horn in Daniel.

Like Uriah Smith and others, he identifies the little book in Revelation as the sealed book from Daniel.

For any reader looking to study a historicist view of Daniel and the Revelation of John, I would recommend "The Prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation" by Uriah Smith as a much better choice.
