Through Daniel's visions and experiences as an exile in Babylon, the book of Daniel gives us a clearer understanding of history than any other part of the Bible. Daniel also makes it clear that God is in control of all human events that have unfolded or will occur in the future. At the same time, he shows us how to live for God in ungodly days-like our own. In this volume of James Montgomery Boice's popular commentary series, pastors, Bible students, and laypersons will find analysis of Daniel's illuminating insights into history. Boice explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and subject by subject. Its clear language and approachable style make this commentary accessible and enlightening.
Dr. Boice's commentary series is a treasure for the church and for her pastors. No expository preacher can afford to be without it.
