Item description for Daniel: The Triumph Of God's Kingdom (Preaching Th by Rodney D. Stortz & R. Kent Hughes...
Overview In this study of Daniel, Pastor Rodney Stortz showcases the coming triumph of God's kingdom.
Containing both triumphant stories of God's provision and difficult prophetic images, the book of Daniel stirs readers' imagination and interest. Examples abound of Daniel's unswerving dedication to the God of Israel, and the prophet describes the coming days in striking detail.
Throughout this book the nature of Daniel's God is revealed to us. God's plans for the future judgment and deliverance of this world, and his followers' relationship with him throughout these events, mark the book. He is a God who loves his people and is in sovereign control over all the events of this world. His knowledge and control over both present circumstances and future events is undeniable.
In this study of Daniel, Pastor Rodney Stortz showcases the coming triumph of God's kingdom. Stortz's careful exegesis and perceptive applications focus on personal holiness, the wisdom and power of God, and the importance of Daniel's prophecies concerning the Messiah, the Antichrist, and Antiochus Epiphanes. In addition, this commentary uses the light of the New Testament to unseal Daniel's scroll, giving a clear understanding of his prophecies. This expositional commentary shows plainly how central the book of Daniel is for understanding coming judgment and the necessity for faithful living until then. Part of the Preaching the Word series.

Pastorally Strong Feb 9, 2010
Stortz work on Daniel is written from an historical pre-millennial position with a strong emphasis on pastoral concerns. For a pastor interested in preaching through the book of Daniel this a great book. Each chapter contains a wealth of sermon perpetration help. The exegetical portions of the book are somewhat light and I would recommend a more scholarly commentary be used alongside this work. The authors contention that the dream of chapter two is fully filled by Christ first coming is interesting, but not exegetically convincing based on the arguments he provides in the commentary.
