Item description for The Book of Daniel: Composition and Reception (Supplements to Vetus Testamentum) by John J. Collins & Peter W. Flint...
Even though the earlier debates of the 20th century have subsided, questions concerning the composition and genre of Daniel, the social setting of the work, its literary context, and its theology persist. Because of the Dead Sea Scrolls discoveries and advances in understanding the history of transmission, Daniel has found a new generation of scholars interested in its place in the Jewish and Christian scriptures. This work reviews the state of Danielic studies and the issues surrounding them.
