The book of Daniel is an fascinating combination of historical book and collection of prophecies, and can sometimes be a confusing mix. Old Testament teacher, itinerent evangelist, and pastor Lehman Strauss has produced an in-depth, thorough study of Daniel his times, writings and prophecies. This commentary has been a welcome addition to Daniel scholarship since its first publication four decades ago, and is highly valuable to both the serious student and the layman looking for something to give a better understanding of the intricacies of this extraordinary part of Scripture.
Dr. Strauss has written an engaging and informative commentary that will be of interest and help both to the pastor and to the serious Bible student. Some knowledge of the book of Daniel is necessary if we are to understand future world events as predicted in the Bible.
Lehman Strauss, Litt.D., F.R.G.S., taught Old Testament history for eight years at Philadelphia Bible Institute and served as pastor of the Calvary Baptist Church in Bristol, Pennsylvania, from 1939 to 1957.
He was pastor of Highland Park Baptist Church in Highland Park, Michigan, until the end of 1963 when he resigned to devote full-time to an itinerant Bible conference and evangelistic ministry. Dr. Strauss was residing in Florida and was writing his 19th book at age 86 when the Lord called him home in June of 1997.
In The Prophecies of Daniel, Strauss has written an engaging and informative commentary quite applicable in this day when there is great curiosity about future events and what the Bible says about them. Both these books will be helpful either to the preaching pastor or to the serious lay Bible student who wishes a better understanding of biblical prophecy.
