Product Description

Redditt brings a refreshing social and cultural perspective to the book of Daniel. He sees the stories (chs. 1-6) as the product of a diaspora group who, on their relocation to Jerusalem, found their ideas and expectations transformed. Daniel 7-12 emerges as an attempt to read the past and future fo the same group, while the whole book denies unqualified allegiance to any human government. This volume marks the revival of the "New Century Bible", one of the most popular commentary series for scholars, students and pastors.

Publisher's Description

This commentary interprets Daniel 1-6 against the background of a group of Diaspora Judaeans who desire to succeed in the court of a foreign king despite the dangers inherent in the attempt, and Daniel 7-12 against the backdrop of that same group in Jerusalem during the days of Antiochus Epiphanes. The eschatological narratives (Daniel 7-12) deal with four themes of apocalyptic rhetoric: time, destiny, suffering/evil, and authority. With respect to time, the commentary emphasizes that Daniel is an attempt to read both the past and the future. With respect to authority, it emphasizes that in Daniel as a whole no human government deserves unqualified allegiance. This volume marks the revival of the 'New Century Bible', one of the most popular commentary series for scholars, students and pastors.
