Product Description

While the book of Daniel is part of the Old Testament, and listed as one of the prophets, it certainly is also an odd fit with both. It is not concerned with covenant and obedience to it as is the Pentateuch. And, unlike the prophets it contains no covenant enforcement (riv oracles), but yet, unlike 95% of the Old Testament prophetic literature, it is eschatological. Moreover, its eschatological scope mirrors that of Revelation and its comprehensive view of space and time mirror Genesis 1-3. Daniel's visions provide this are the impetus for this view and through them is unveiled the divine view of history.

With this in mind, the prospect of studying the book of Daniel seems both daunting and fascinating. It will certainly be a unique experience, and one that will undoubtedly pay strong dividends. In the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary on Daniel author Joyce Baldwin takes on a illuminating and informative journey through the book of Daniel and his world while drawing out and explaining the unique characteristics of the book, its historical context, and its theological power.

Baldwin's scholarly acumen, and eloquent, yet lucid, writing will make this an excellent edition to biblical libraries for all levels of readers whether scholarly, pastoral, or laity. Moreover, the entire TOTC series is an exceptional resource for churches and, especially those charged with educating the church.

Publisher's Description

Daniel is a difficult book. But it is a book about the meaning of history, and people today need its message. The whole church needs reassurance, especially in view of Marxist claims to be able by human effort to introduce a utopian world government. "When the church lets part of its message go by default people look elsewhere for a substitute," writes Joyce Baldwin. "All the more reason, then, why the church needs to be counting on the certainties proclaimed by Daniel, namely that God is constantly overruling and judging in the affairs of men, putting down the mighty from their seats, overthrowing unjust regimes and effectively bringing in His kingdom, which is to embrace all nations." The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Author Bio
