Product Description

God had allowed the unthinkable to happen. His people were in exile in Babylon; his promises seemed shattered. Was he really in control? Was he faithful? Did he still care? One young man, Daniel, affirmed God's sovereignty and love, although it was not without cost.

The Old Testament book of Daniel contains well-known stories Daniel in the den of Lions, his three companions in a fiery furnace, and the strange handwriting on the wall at Belshazzar's feast, which struck terror in the heart of the Babylonian king. However, Daniel's enigmatic visions and prophecies about the future can be difficult to understand.

Dale Ralph Davis explores the book's background, discusses significant interpretive issues and problems, and offers a lively exposition of Daniel's message, which may be summed up in the words of Jesus: "the end is not yet. but the one who endures to the end will be saved". The book of Daniel is a realistic survival manual for the saints, still vitally relevant for the church in today's world.

Editorial Reviews

"Here is a fine volume on Daniel by Dale Ralph Davis, who is simply one of the best writers today on any Old Testament historical portion, in the Bible Speaks Today series. Helpful in the ways usually found in this series, this volume is also particularly so for preachers. . . .The book is enriching and I highly recommend it."
"This is a commentary that serves both the laity and preachers. Davis doesn't load the text with too many technical points but allows for a good flow for reading. He retains the technical elements but keeps them in the footnotes. It definitely serves as a wonderful entry point into the book of Daniel."
"Davis, obviously a capable preacher, explains the background to Daniel, sifts through interpretive issues (some of them quite problematic) and then offers a faithful exposition of the book's message. Recommended."

    Practical and enriching. These are the words you will be thinking when you finish The Message of Daniel by Dale Ralph Davis, as it is one of the most well exit books on Daniel that I have had the privilege of reading. This book is parts of the ever-growing series called The Bible Speaks Today, produced by IVP Academic. The Bible Speaks Today is a thoroughly Evangelical series which serves as an introduction as well as practicality explaining the Book of Daniel through a thoroughly Reformed perspective.

    In the introduction, with regard to the dating of Daniel, Davis argues well for an early date, I abet briefly, against critical arguments for older dating. His arguments systematically destroy any critical arguments that have been put forth to this time. His arguments are up today and even focus on the most critical and modern viewpoints, even ones that have just recently been published.

    Davis is a excellent old testament exegete specifically and when it comes to Babylonian exile history, it shines in this volume. Davis makes sure that the reader is getting an important look into the culture of the day and its influence on the text. Through this process Davis brings about conclusions which are gold for any pastor preaching exegetically through the Book of Daniel.

    After exegeting the narrative portion of Daniel, Davies tackles the prophetic portion, chapters 7 through 12. Almost, there are not many commentaries which resent this position in favorable light, yet Davis argues for this you would great tenacity and explains the on position in a clear and easy to understand way. Even those who hold to a post or premillennial view will come away with a greater understanding of this Millennial View periods in the end Davis demonstrates why he is one of the greatest Old Testament scholar of the modern age, which makes this introduction to the Book of Daniel a must-read by pastors preaching or Layman teaching through the Book of Daniel either in the Pulpit or in the Sunday School room. I highly recommend this volume as an aid in either of these circumstances.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from IVP Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

    Here is a fine volume on Daniel by Dale Ralph Davis, who is simply one of the best writers today on any Old Testament historical portion, in the Bible Speaks Today series. Helpful in the ways usually found in this series, this volume is also particularly so for preachers. It delivers at a level we have come to expect from Mr. Davis too.

    The Introduction is short, but powerful in its easy repudiation of critical theories and dating. I would even call that section fun to read. I found myself agreeing with much of what he wrote.

    Again, the history was superb here. Background on Babylon and the Jews in Babylon was illuminating. From thoughts on the diet put before Daniel and his friends to Nebuchadnezzars mindset or dream the reader gains much and through the more famous stories as well. He brings out the information and insights most needed

    Since I have a different perspective than him on prophecy, I could not agree him on passages like, say, Daniel 9:25-27. Still, he was kind in presenting his amillennial case, and the other historical sections are well worth the price of the book. I would already label this my favorite from that prophetic viewpoint though I hold to a different one.

    The book is enriching and I highly recommend it.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
