Frenetic scholarly activity has raged over differing interpretations of the book of Daniel. Many liberal scholars claim that it is full of fanciful accounts and some claim that the prophecies were written after the events occured. Bob Fyall deals with these arguments in his introduction. He then proceeds to explain the text, showing us why and when it was written.
Daniel is an excellent example of godly living and loudly proclaims that God reigns sovereignly and will use those who know him to fulfill his purposes in the world. The book of Daniel is also a book that contains prophecy and visions. Some of the prophecies are remarkably detailed and were fulfilled in history, while others concern the coming kingdom of the Messiah. Fyall provides guidelines for us to use in coming to a biblical understanding of God's plans for the world.
