The book of Daniel is one of those books in the Bible that can be difficult to decipher, what with it being a book of prophesy. Finding a good commentary to help you better understand can be a struggle. Some commentaries are just as hard to understand as the text itself but Daniel: Everyday Bible Commentary by John C. Whitcomb is a commentary that can be used by anyone!

Taking you verse by verse, the author takes the time to break down each verse to help the reader better discern the text. With a considerable amount of historical background also included, this is a wonderful resource that any Bible scholar would treasure. Highly recommend! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802420672, Paperback)

Controversy has raged for centuries over the authenticity and authorship of the book of Daniel. Is it a forged document written much later to encourage Maccabean freedom fighters resisting Antiochus Epiphanes? Isn't it full of obvious historical blunders? How could Daniel have included Greek works in his Hebrew and Aramaic text?

John C. Whitcomb has answered these accusations and more against the prophetic revelation of Daniel. With thorough research and thoughful commentary he reaffirms for us the importance of the book of Daniel among the prophetic books of the Old Testament.

The sovereignty of God is so evident throughout the life of Daniel the prophet that we cannot doubt the sovereign intention of Daniel the book.

This is what the best preachers do, but you don't have to wait until Sunday's sermon. Encounter the beautiful depth of Daniel through an enlightening verse-by-verse commentary from John C. Whitcomb that's both straightforward and insightful. You'll gain: Important historical background Insights from the original languages Explanations of prophetic symbols And more!
