Digital Logos Edition

Logos Editions are fully connected to your library and Bible study tools.



Often we read the book of Daniel in one of two ways: either as a book about a heroic man whose righteousness should inspire us to keep the faith, or as a roadmap to the end times that reveals the day and hour of Christ’s return. Bryan Chapell reminds us the book isn’t ultimately about Daniel or the end of days—it’s about Jesus. God is the hero of this story, and he is in the midst of his unrelenting plan to rescue his people from their sin and its consequences. Pastors, teachers, and Christians who want to learn how to faithfully understand the book of Daniel—without getting derailed by hero worship or prophetic mysteries—will value this grace-centered approach.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

“The first reason that God allows us to face such risks is that they are preparation for spiritual battles that always lie ahead.” (Page 19)

“Biblical faith is not confidence in particular outcomes; it is confidence in a sovereign God. We trust that he knows what we cannot discern, plans what we cannot anticipate, and secures our eternity in ways beyond our fathoming. Our trust is not in the quantity or quality of our belief. Our trust in God is not built on insights we possess or wishes we manufacture. The Bible does not teach us to look inward to discern what we should be trusting. Faith is not confidence in our belief but confidence in our God. Any other perspective will ultimately harm our faith.” (Page 53)

“The great Protestant Reformers reminded us that the task of those who teach and preach the Bible is not to harangue or guilt parishioners into ‘slavish duty’ but rather to fill them up with ‘a childlike love’ for God by extolling the wonders of his grace (Westminster Confession of Faith, XX.i).” (Page 10)

“While we may be looking for some great plan to transform culture, God still calls us never to forget the power of simple piety. The way that we make a difference even as a minority in a culture turned from our God is to honor him with holy lives dedicated to witnessing his grace. As we pursue holiness, our spiritual welfare and witness are God’s delight—as well as our greatest reward.” (Page 26)

“If Daniel would risk position, privilege, and life itself for a pure relationship with his God, then that must be quite a relationship and that must be quite a God. His stand for his God amid earthly deprivations is a witness to the incomparable blessings of the grace of his God. By his willingness to risk everything for his God, Daniel shows how precious is a relationship with God.” (Pages 24–25)

A tour de force of biblical theology. This is an example of the kind of preaching that should be found in every pulpit.

R. Albert Mohler Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Bryan Chapell is a great Bible teacher. He helps us see our Messiah and his mission through the book of Daniel.

—Mark Driscoll, pastor, Mars Hill Church

Chapell has been at the forefront of a resurgence in Christ-centered exposition, persuasively arguing that all of Scripture demonstrates the grace of God which culminates in the person and work of Jesus Christ. In this new and welcomed volume, Dr. Chapell goes beyond merely telling us how this can be done to showing us what such an interpretation actually looks like.

Justin Taylor, coauthor, The Final Days of Jesus

This book is spectacular. If you want to learn how to see Christ in all of Scripture and grace for all of life, or if you plan to read, teach, or preach Daniel, then be sure to read it.

—Justin S. Holcomb, professor of theology, Reformed Theological Seminary and Knox Theological Seminary
