Reviews - What do customers think about Daniel (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching)?
There are better ones out there: Jul 1, 2004
This commentary falls way short in its interpretation of Daniel. I'm giving it two stars because there are bits and pieces in the book that I find insightful. But over all, the author spends more time refuting rather than expounding Daniel. This is not the primary commentary to get for sermon or teaching preparation. There are better ones out there. Try the New American Commentary series or the Word Commentary series.
