Item description for Commentary-Daniel (Preachers Commentary V21) by Sinclair B. Ferguson...

Overview
General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations.

The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Daniel (Preachers Commentary V21)?

Deep and Alive  Sep 28, 2003
The book I actually worked through was of the old Communicator's Commentary. Fortunately that series is no longer operative, but even more fortunate, Dr. Ferguson is.

As bad as Communicator's was, Dr. Ogilvie should be commended for trying to improve it. Now to the book itself. As the other reviewer already noted, those who approach Daniel from a prophetic viewpoint miss the forest for the trees. Ferguson does not crucify scholarship at the expense of application. He provides deep truths with poignant illustrations (many of them with gripping Scottish overtones). Underlying Dr, Ferguson's interpretation of Daniel is a rock-hard foundation of God's Sovereignty. While focusing primarily upon the prayer lives of the heroes, Ferguson does justice to the prophetic sections when they arrive. He provides convincing exposition from a Reformed eschatological background. He also argues convincingly for an early date of Daniel.

I recommend this commentary for pastor's and the curious layperson. In fact, this is one of the top non-technical commentaries on the book.

 
Daniel for Practical Application  May 7, 2001
There are two ways one can approach the Book of Daniel. One can ignore the stories and focus on the prophecies in chapters 2 and 7-12, looking for explanations in history. This jigsaw puzzle approach to the Book of Daniel does not help one to live a better life. But, I must confess, that that was the approach I was looking for when I bought the book. I got so much more out of it as I studied Daniel's uncompromising life of prayer. Dr. Ferguson does not ignore history nor fail to indicate what events the prophecies refer to when this is clear, but much more important than that is the lesson that God is sovereign over history. He is in control. We can either, like Daniel, seek after God's in obedience or, like the kings of Babylon, go against His plan in a rebellion that is doomed to fail.
