More About j vernon mcgee
Dr. John Vernon McGee, Th.D., LL.D, (June 17, 1904 – December 1, 1988) was an ordained Presbyterian minister (PCUS) who later pastored an interdenominational church, a Bible teacher, theologian, and was also a radio minister.
Dr. McGee spent more than 50 years teaching the Bible on his "Thru the Bible" radio broadcast. He pastored for more than 40 years and has authored many best-selling books, including "Doctrine for Difficult Days".
He was born in Hillsboro, Texas. He graduated with his B.D. from Columbia Theological Seminary and his Th.M. and Th.D. from Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas.Dr. McGee's first church was located on a red clay hill in Midway, Georgia. He served Presbyterian churches in Decatur, Georgia; Nashville, Tennessee; and Cleburne, Texas before he moved with his wife to Pasadena, California, where he accepted a position at the Lincoln Avenue Presbyterian Church.
He moved from Pasadena to Los Angeles and became the pastor of the Church of the Open Door in 1949, where he continued as pastor until 1970. McGee also served as chairman of the Bible department at the Bible Institute of Los Angeles (a.k.a. Biola University) and as a visiting lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary.
In 1967, he began broadcasting the Thru the Bible Radio Network program. In a systematic study of each book of the Bible, Dr. McGee took his listeners from Genesis to Revelation in a two and one-half year "Bible bus trip," as he called it. After retiring from the pastorate in January, 1970, and realizing that two and a half years was not enough time to teach the Bible, McGee completed another study of the entire Bible in a five-year period. Thru the Bible has been translated into over 100 languages and is broadcast on Trans World Radio throughout the world every weekday.
Dr. McGee continued many speaking engagements after he retired, refusing to be slowed by a bout of cancer from which he fully recovered. However, a heart problem surgically corrected in 1965 resurfaced, and he died in his sleep in 1988. After his death, the five-year program of Thru the Bible continues to air on over 400 radio stations in North America, is heard in more than 100 languages and is broadcast worldwide via radio, shortwave, and the Internet.
J. Vernon McGee was born in 1904 and died in 1988.
Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Thru The Bible/Daniel?
Easy style to read Jan 7, 2005
McGee writes in a smooth style that is easy to read and understand. He tries to be humorous at times.
The verses are also contained in the book so you don't need to have your bible with you to follow along. The book starts at the beginning of the book of Daniel and describes each chapter until the end of the book.
I learned a lot from reading this book and gained a better insight into the book of Daniel.
Dr. McGee was an excellent Bible expositor. Nov 19, 2002
His work on Daniel was no exception. Although it does not go into any great theological depth (then again why does it have to?), this commentaryis an excellent introduction to this mysterious, prophetic book.
"Comparing spiritual things with spiritual," Dr. McGee eschews pointless speculation, and fantastic theorizing in order to present a clear picture of this book, which is that it is the gateway book to endtime Bible prophecy.
This book is ideal for a daily devotional guide, as well as a group study guide. I would certainly use it either way.
If the commentary on Daniel is indicative of the way his other commentaries are written, I will be purchasing more of the late J. Vernon McGee's books.
