This commentary on Daniel by Dr. Edward J. Young, late Professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, is the serious, painstaking work of one of the foremost of contemporary Old Testament scholars. It is designed to meet the needs of the minister and the trained Bible student as well as the average educated reader of Holy Scripture. The author has aimed above all else to present a clear, positive exposition of prophecy coupled with an accurate explanation of historical fact based on recent research and the accumulated authority of other outstanding Biblical scholars. In addition, he has endeavored to bring out the exact meaning of the Hebrew and Aramaic languages in the new translation which accompanies the commentary. The reader will find adequate reference to the divergent interpretations of others, with satisfying, scholarly explanation of differences. Those unacquainted with the ancient languages can nevertheless read this volume with great profit.
