Daniel (Everyday Bible Commentary Series) Review

Book Review: 

Daniel, by John C. Whitcomb is an interesting in-depth bible study, and it's a part of the Everyday Bible Commentary series.

This book allows readers to encounter the biblical book of Daniel in an easy-to-read manner and focus on an in-depth study with verse-by-verse commentary. Each chapter may be utilized during as a personal bible study, as well as a group study with friends or church bible studies.

This book is divided into ten chapters, which are titled as The Training of Daniel in Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar's Dream of the Great Image, Daniel's Three Friends and the Fiery Furnace, Nebuchadnezzar's Dream of the High Tree, Belshazzar's Feast, Daniel in the Lions' Den, The Four Kingdoms and the Little Horn, The Ram, the Male Goat, and the Little Horn, Daniel's Prayer and the Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks, and Daniel's Final Vision of the Latter Days. Also, there are additional sections titled as Publisher's Note, Introduction, Notes, Selected Bibliography, and Acknowledgements.

According to the Publisher's Note, "For over sixty years, the Everyday Bible Commentary series (formerly titled as Everyman's Bible Commentary series) has served millions of readers, helping them to grow in their understanding, of both God and His Word. These commentaries--written by a host of evangelical scholars who are expects in their respective fields--provide biblical interpretation that is both accessible and rich, impacting the daily lives of Christians from diverse cultural and theological backgrounds.... While these commentaries are not new, they remain relevant as the content in each volume provides timeless scriptural exposition...[and] these commentaries were written: that believers may encounter God through His Word and embody it in their everyday lives."

Daniel is a highly recommended in-depth bible study, which is geared towards various ages, from young adults to older generations.

Note: I received this book from Moody Newsroom, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
