    The Most High God: A Commentary on the Book of Daniel by Renald Showers (EncompassedRunner)
    EncompassedRunner: For readers that find Walvoord's commentary too academic or full of distracting references and citations to start out with, I recommend Renald Showers "The Most High God" as an easy-to-read commentary on Daniel written at the popular level and from the same dispensationalist viewpoint as Walvoord's, but minus the academic style. Even for those wanting an academic style and depth, it might be valuable to read Showers' book first to get an overview or to help refresh and/or "gel" one's understanding of Daniel.… (more)

SUBTITLE: A Commentary
  BeitHallel | Feb 18, 2011 |
A conservative, literal placement of the prophetic "Book of Daniel" in the Bible. Much effort is expended to defend a sixth century B.C. authorship of "Daniel." Walvoord, however, offers very few other insights, and the commentary does not live up to the promise of the title. Why would "Daniel" be the key to prophetic revelation and not any other book? Why not Deuteronomy 27 and 28? Granted, "Daniel" does influence the New Testament "Book of Revelation," but there is nearly no mention of this in the book. Also, some of the detailed discussions of the "seventy weeks" and other prophetic predictions are difficult to understand.

All in all, a good excuse to look at the "Book of Daniel" (especially if you are conservative) but not one that will change your life or thought.
