Here is a commentary for those who would like to read and enjoy the book of Daniel. The symbolism and apparently mysterious passages in the book have discouraged many from giving it serious study. But Stuart Olyott, in his lively yet thorough style, shows that the prophecy of Daniel is basically an easy book to understand. His aim is to excite readers to read Daniel for themselves.
The book of Daniel is full of practical help—especially for believers who find themselves standing alone in the classroom or at work, or among their family and friends. Daniel tells us how to remain true to God in a hostile environment, and shows us how to live for him when everything is against us. Daniel dared to stand alone. So can we.
Praise for the Print Edition
Dare to Stand Alone is a masterpiece of clear, helpful applied writing which causes the book of Daniel to be living and relevant, not only in its exciting narrative sections, but in its highly symbolic sections also.
