Product Description

"And behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom." (Daniel 7:13-14 ESV).

Perceiving a hole in evangelical biblical theology that should be filled with a robust treatment of the book of Daniel, James Hamilton takes this chance to delve into the book's rich contribution to the Bible's unfolding redemptive-historical storyline.

By setting Daniel in the broader context of biblical theology, this canonical study helps move us toward a clearer understanding of how we should live today in response to its message. First, he shows how the book's literary structure contributes to its meaning, and then addresses key questions and issues, concluding by examining typological patterns.

Hamilton argues that the four kingdoms prophesied by Daniel are both historical and symbolic - that the "one like a son of man" seen by Daniel is identified with and distinguished from the Ancient of Days in a way that would be mysterious until Jesus came as both the son of David and God incarnate. He elaborates that the interpretations of Daniel in early Jewish literature attest to strategies similar to those employed by New Testament authors and exposes that those authors provide a Spirit-inspired interpretation of Daniel that was learned from Jesus. He also highlights how the book of Revelation uses Daniel's language, imitates his structure, points to the fulfillment of his prophecies and clarifies the meaning of his "seventieth week."

Editorial Reviews

"In addition to providing his readers with this biblical theology of Daniel, with its thought-provoking trajectories running both backward and forward, Dr. Hamilton's work is also an implicit call to engage in similar work on other biblical books, in self-conscious determination to reverse two centuries or more of atomistic approaches to Scripture."
"This is an important book and a welcome addition to an excellent series (NSBT), and I commend it for all biblical disciplines. I benefited from reading Hamilton's book, and I am grateful for his commitment to doing robust theology and exegesis for the benefit of the church."
"The 32nd (and latest) installment in InterVarsity's New Studies in Biblical Theology series, edited by D. A. Carson, James Hamilton's With the Clouds of Heaven: The Book of Daniel in Biblical Theology is an 'evangelical and canonical biblical theology of Daniel' that aims to unfold not only the meaning of Daniel itself but also how the book is strategically situated within the Bible's grand storyline. Hamilton's volume is a welcome companion for anyone seeking to preach theologically rich, Christ-centered, applicational sermons from this enigmatic blend of narrative and apocalypse."
