Bryan Chapell has authored some of my favorite books. Christ-Centered Preaching is a must read! His collaboration with Kent Hughes in the "Preach The Word Series" on the pastoral epistles is phenomenal. I was thrilled to find that he had published on Daniel. This is the first Old Testament work of his that I have read. I found it to be (wildly?) inconsistent. His chapters swung between extremely helpful on one extreme and quite unhelpful on the other. I tended to find his commentary on chapters 1-6 to be bland. He cranked up the insight when you come to "the dangerous part" of Daniel in chapter 7. His vivid imagery and understanding of the apocalyptic portions was extremely helpful to me.

I recommend this book. But don't read it alone. Pick another more technical commentary to read alongside this. This work would be more devotional or pastoral in nature. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801016118, Paperback)

Often we read the book of Daniel in one of two ways--either as a book about a heroic man whose righteousness should inspire us to keep the faith no matter what our circumstances, or as a roadmap to the end times that can, through careful study, perhaps tell us the day and hour (or nearly so) of Christ's return. Both, says Bryan Chapell, are sadly missing the bigger picture, that God is the hero of this story and he is in the midst of his unrelenting plan to rescue his people from their sin and its consequences. We mustn't simply make the man Daniel the object of our worship nor the subject of our debates. We may differ about prophetic details, Chapell says, but we should never miss the point that the book of Daniel is, like all of Old Testament Scripture, pointing us toward the grace of God, ultimately revealed in Christ.

Pastors, teachers, and individual Christians studying the book of Daniel will find this volume a welcome addition to their library.
