Item description for Daniel (Mastering the Old Testament, Vol 19) by Sinclair B. Ferguson...

For those on the firing line in the pulpits, classes, study groups, and Bible fellowship clusters, here is a distinctly different kind of commentary. Dr. Ferguson has combined detailed examination of the text of Daniel with a theologian's ability to give an ordered elucidation of theological content. Mastering the Old Testament combines rich resources of the historical setting and textual interpretation with practical application to aid in contemporary Bible study. This commentary provides critical textual exposition, corollary verses or illustrations from other portions of the Bible, and classical or contemporary life-situation illustrations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Daniel (Mastering the Old Testament, Vol 19)?

Helps make sense of one of Scripture's most puzzling books  Aug 14, 2007
I'm not familiar with Ferguson, but this exposition of Daniel is a fitting addition to The Preacher's Commentary series. Daniel is one of the most difficult books to explain in the entire Bible, and Ferguson does a better job than most of making sense of it without sacrificing scholarship. Very useful for the Bible teacher or pastor seeking to make Daniel real for a congregation or classroom.
Deep and Alive  Sep 29, 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.
