Product Description

Frenetic scholarly activity has raged over differing interpretations of the book of Daniel. Many liberal scholars claim that it is full of fanciful accounts, some that the prophecies were written after the events occurred. Bob Fyall deals with such questions in his introduction before he goes on to explain the text. He shows us why it was written and when it was written. Daniel is an excellent example of godly living and there is a theme throughout the book of Daniel that God reigns sovereignly and that he will use those who know him to do exploits in history. The book of Daniel is also a book that contains prophecy and visions. Some of the prophecies are remarkably detailed and are fulfilled in history, others concern the coming kingdom of the Messiah. Fyall provides guidelines for us to use in coming to a biblical understanding of God's plan for the world.

Dr Bob Fyall has been the Director of Rutherford House, Edinburgh since 2003. The preceding fourteen years Bob spent in joint ministry - training students for the ministry in Cranmer Hall, St John's College, Durham and pastoring a church where a large student ministry developed.
