Daniel: Evangelical Exegetical Commentary

In this volume from the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary, Paul Tanner argues that the book of Daniel is the Old Testament blueprint of the Bible’s overarching eschatological narrative. Tanner examines key aspects of the book of Daniel such as the revelation of Israel’s future in relation to gentile kingdoms, God’s exaltation of Daniel as a channel through whom he reveals his will and God’s sovereign control of the nations under whom Israel is being disciplined. Tanner provides exegetical insight to help readers better understand not only how God worked in Israel’s history through Daniel, but how he sovereignly directs all of world history―for all time.
This commentary provides detailed exegetical notes in regard to both the Hebrew and Aramaic sections of the book. For each pericope, in addition to textual notes, translation and commentary, there is also discussion of the contribution to biblical theology and devotional thoughts. The Introduction (122 pages) covers all the important issues for a study of the book, including discussion of the relevant manuscripts, literary structure, historical and religious background, and a defense of the Danielic authorship of the book in the sixth-century BC.
