A Commentary on the Book of Daniel

  • Author: D. L. Shirres
  • Publisher: A. Brown and Co.
  • Publication Date: 1885
  • Pages: 185

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

David Logan Shirres moves chapter-by-chapter through the Book of Daniel, using unadorned language to plainly discuss the text. "The prophetic parts of this book are rendered easy by comparing Scripture with Scripture," Shirres writes in the preface, "and the prospect of glory is shown to be very near, to the great joy of all who truly look for His appearing."

D. L. Shirres is the author of numerous commentaries on the Bible, including A Commentary on the Apocalypse and A Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles.

A Critical Commentary on the Book of Daniel

  • Author: J. Dyneley Prince
  • Publisher: Williams and Norgate
  • Publication Date: 1899
  • Pages: 269

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Prince divides his commentary on the Book of Daniel into three parts: a general introduction to the book, a critical commentary, and a philological commentary reserved for the discussion of all the purely technical points. Includes four indices: of subjects, of Aramaic, Assyrian, and Hebrew words and stems.

Many useful remarks are contained in the critical commentary. Of special value are the notes on such subjects as the Chaldeans, the Greeks in Assyro-Babylonian inscriptions, the fall of Babylon, and Medes and Persians. Perhaps the most important service which this commentary does for us is the use which Professor Prince makes of the cuneiform inscriptions in the interpretation of the Book of Daniel. The results of his special studies appear on every page, especially in the philogical commentary, and are of great value.

  • Publisher: C. and J. Rivington
  • Publication Date: 1825
  • Pages: 492

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Stonard provides four introductory chapters on prophecy in the Bible before breaking his examination of the Book of Daniel into five focused sections of study.

The 'Dissertation' is exceedingly elaborate, and for the distribution of the materials of which is composed, and the order and fitness of the discussions which it includes, is entitled to high praise as the work of a scholar. We feel bound, both on account of the interest, importance, and difficulties of the subject to which it relates, and of the manner in which it is executed, to recommend it to our theological readers as highly deserving of their attention.

The Eclectic Review

John Stonard was rector of the parish in Aldingham Lancashire and also the author of a commentary on the prophecy found in Zechariah.

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Using illustrations and quotations from literature, poetry, biography, and more, Moffatt seeks to illuminate biblical verses found in the Book of Daniel by placing "lighted candles beside the text of Scripture."

The authors quoted cover a remarkably wide range, from Shakespeare, Tennyson, and Browning to Walt Whitman and Maxim Gorky. While these books will be of interest to the average reader, they will prove of special help to preachers and teachers.

In the end the reader will probably come to the conclusion that there is no more interesting examination of the Book of Daniel than the present work.

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

After an introduction to prophecy in the Bible and the Book of Daniel, Murphy concentrates on the four visions of Daniel in chapters 7–12.

The arrangement is good. The comments are full, and include historical, geographical, and biographical explanations. The volume is valuable, and it adds not a little to the interpretation of Daniel.

The Baptist Quarterly Review

  • Author: Nathaniel S. Folsom

The following work contains not a commentary on the entire Book of Daniel, but an interpretation of the prophetic parts found in chapters 2, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 12.

Mr. Folsom's work contains a very calm and temperate examination of those portions of the Book of Daniel which involve the most difficulty. By such studies, light is elicited; the word of God honored; and religion advanced.

The Christian Review

Nathaniel S. Folsom was a professor of Biblical literature at Meadville Theological School.

The Book of Daniel: A Composite Revelation of the Last Days of Israel's Subjugation to Gentile Powers

  • Publication Date: 1918
  • Pages: 224

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

With an introduction by James Gray, Dean of the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago, W. C. Steven's commentary on the Book of Daniel appeared during a dark period in history—World War One. With many commentators altering their interpretation of Daniel to fit the times, Steven's work presented a balanced view of the Scriptures and a plea to spread the Gospels marked with this question: "Would it be well for the Church for Him to come and find her far behind in this business?"

Dr. Stephens is a close student and gets at the truth put forth in this interesting prophecy in a way to be helpful to his readers.

Herald of Gospel Liberty

The best Bible teacher is he who lets God do the most teaching through his lips, of by his pen, and Mr. Stevens has the wisdom to perceive and act on this principle.

—James M. Gray, from the Introduction

W. C. Stevens was Principal of the Missionary Training Institute for the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Nyack, N.Y.

  • Author: William C. Thurman
  • Publisher: John Goodyear
  • Publication Date: 1864
  • Pages: 304

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

William C. Thurman uses astronomy as a lens to examine the Book of Daniel. Includes tables, charts, drawings, and a detailed index.

We have read the interesting and elaborate work before us with satisfaction and profit, and believe it settles some things of importance in prophetic interpretation, and raises points the pursuit of which must contribute to a better knowledge of what God has written in the Scriptures of truth. The first part of the book, which deals with mathematical and astronomical details, is altogether fresh and original.

The Prophetic Times

William C. Thurman is the author of numerous books, including The Ordinance of Feet Washing: As Instituted by Christ, Three Important Questions Considered, To the Christian World, and To the Disappointed and Tried: Daniel 12:10.

Lectures on the Book of Daniel

  • Author: Leonard Strong
  • Publisher: Yapp and Hawkins
  • Publication Date: 1871
  • Pages: 165

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

These lectures are the result of successive teachings of the Book of Daniel, delivered at Torquay during the winter of 1870–71. Strong revised and put these lectures into book form at the request of friends and attendees.

The lectures are not erudite or difficult; they illustrate Scripture by Scripture, and whether the reader agrees with all the conclusions or not, the perusal of the book, and the examination of the passages referred to, will well repay the time thus spent.

The Christian

Leonard Strong (1797–1874) was the son of a Church of England clergyman and served as a midshipman in the British Navy. After studying at Oxford, Strong took a post as rector of St. Matthew's in Demerara and became a strong abolitionist.

  • Publication Date: 1864
  • Pages: 302

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Through a series of essays, Tregelles examines the Book of Daniel, defending its authenticity. Tregelles focuses on the prophetic portions he feels many biblical commentators have negligently interpreted from preconceived ideas and perspectives.

Its scholarship, its learning, its vigor, its clearness, are such as greatly to commend it to every prophetic student.

The Quarterly Journal of Prophecy

Samuel Prideaux Tregelles born in 1813, was a giant of biblical scholarship during the 19th century. His scholarly endeavors cover the whole gamut of biblical and theological study, from Hebrew grammar and lexicography, to New Testament textual criticism. Most well-known for his work in textual criticism, he is one of only a handful of scholars to have produced a complete critical edition of the Greek New Testament single-handedly. His efforts laid the foundation for much of the text critical work of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, for scholars such as Westcott and Hort, Eberhard Nestle, Kurt and Barbara Aland, and Bruce Metzger. Known for his vast knowledge on virtually any topic, it is said that he was "able to shed a light upon any topic that might be introduced," but that asking could be dangerous because, "doing so was like reaching to take a book and having the whole shelf-full precipitated upon your head." He died in 1875 just following the completion of his tour de force critical edition, The Greek New Testament, Edited from Ancient Authorities, which was seen to publication after his death by Fenton J. A. Hort in 1879.

  • Pages: 408

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Daniel I-VI: An Exposition of the Historical Portion of the Writings of the Prophet Daniel

  • Author: Robert Payne Smith
  • Publisher: James Nisbet & Co.
  • Publication Date: 1886
  • Pages: 335

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Initially printed in serial form in Homiletic Magazine, the editor felt these twenty-two essays on the first six chapters of the Book of Daniel by Smith warranted a stand-alone volume for their popularity and practicality for preachers and teachers.

Dr. Payne Smith's book is an exposition with distinct homiletical purposes in view. Every page bears the mark of abundant research, and because it is not of the immediate occasion, but has been stored up and made the writer's own, its fruit is a genuine originality.

The Expository Times

Robert Payne Smith was Regius Professor of Divinity at the University of Oxford. In 1870, he was appointed Dean of Canterbury by Queen Victoria. He was the Bampton Lecturer in 1869 and author of Thesaurus Syriacus, later translated into English by his daughter as A Compendious Syriac Dictionary.

  • Pages: 496

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Daniel the Prophet contains nine lectures by E. B. Pusey delivered to the Divinity School of the University of Oxford.

In truth, Dr. Pusey's Daniel the Prophet is one of the most important productions of the age. Good sense, strong thought, sound learning, exquisite sentiment, and a fine tone of Christian reverence and humility characterize it throughout.

London Quarterly Review

Never before has such a marvelous store of learning been brought to bear upon any portion of the inspired Canon.

The Ecclesiastic Review

E. B. Pusey was a leader in the Anglo-Catholic Oxford movement within the Church of England and was Regius Professor of Hebrew and canon of Christ Church at Oxford. He shared with other brilliant young Oxford conservatives concern about the rising tide of biblical and theological liberalism and the reform spirit rampant in Britain during the late 1820s and 1830s. He contributed to reviving a “dead” High Church orthodoxy by stimulating knowledge of the early church fathers and of non-Puritan Anglicans of the seventeenth century. Their teaching had been obscured, in his estimation, by Deism, Broad Church theological indifference, and the evangelicals’ concentration upon God’s work alone in justification and the experience of that. Pusey began to warn against the dangers of the new German theology, which he had studied firsthand. He began in late 1833 to contribute to the Tracts for the Times edited by John Henry Newman and to make the Tracts significant expressions of Anglo-Catholic teaching. He established a residence for theological students and a society for professors, tutors, and graduates in order to spread his principles. In 1836, he commenced editing translations of early Christian writers under the title The Library of the Fathers, which became a lifetime project, the last of the forty-eight volumes being published after his death. He was the first person of prominence to identify himself publicly with the movement, causing “Puseyism” to become the popular designation for it.
