This volume looks at the book of Daniel, revealing that God, not a human king, is ultimately in control—an appropriate message for today's world of moral decline and political upheaval. This book will help readers bridge the gap between the sixth century B.C. and the present day.
It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.
—Charles F. Stanley, pastor, First Baptist Church of Atlanta
The NIV Application Commentary series doesn’t fool around. It gets right down to business, bringing this ancient and powerful Word of God into the present so that it can be heard and delivered with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend’s embrace.
The NIV Application Commentary series promises to be of very great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God.
—J. I. Packer, Regent College
