The Message of Daniel
Full Product Description
The Old Testament book of Daniel contains well-known stories: Daniel in the den of lions, his three companions in a fiery furnace, and the strange handwriting on the wall at Belshazzar's feast, which struck terror in the heart of the Babylonian king. However, the book can be difficult to understand. Along with stories about Judean exiles working in the court of pagan kings (chapters 1-6), it also consists of Daniel's enigmatic visions and prophecies about the future (chapters 7-12). It is written in two languages, Hebrew and Aramaic, and the language division does not match the subject division.
Ralph Davis explores the book's background, discusses significant interpretative issues and problems, and offers a lively exposition of Daniel's message, which may be summed up in the words of Jesus: 'the end is not yet ... but the one who endures to the end will be saved' (Mark 13:7, 13). The book is essentially 'a realistic survival manual for the saints', still vitally relevant for the church in today's world.
The Message of Daniel by Rev Dr Dale Ralph Davis was published by IVP in June 2013 and is our 2031st best seller. The ISBN for The Message of Daniel is 9781844748013.

The Message Of DanielMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
I like the Bible Speaks Today series of commentaries, they are a good blend of modern insight and "stories" leading into clear well written biblical commentary with good oversight, detail and analysis working through the book being studied. Daniel is no different on this front, clear analysis in intelligent but readable and readily understandable language that really helps draw out the insights and understandings of what is readily acknowledged as one of the most difficult and complex books of the Bible with its deep prophetic elements. Davis manages to work with these difficulties and draws in some very interesting modern facts to help present them in a more understandable way (some interesting modern knowledge on eating dirt and the reasons for it amongst other gems). It helps clear up some of the complexity whilst not entirely removing the wonder and prophetic shadow that is so essential to the book as the basis for much that comes later in revelation. A good commentary that really does help a modern audience deal with a complex biblical book.
