Description

Often we read the book of Daniel in one of two ways--either as a book about a heroic man whose righteousness should inspire us to keep the faith no matter what our circumstances, or as a roadmap to the end times that can, through careful study, perhaps tell us the day and hour (or nearly so) of Christ's return. Both, says Bryan Chapell, are sadly missing the bigger picture, that God is the hero of this story and he is in the midst of his unrelenting plan to rescue his people from their sin and its consequences. We mustn't simply make the man Daniel the object of our worship nor the subject of our debates. We may differ about prophetic details, Chapell says, but we should never miss the point that the book of Daniel is, like all of Old Testament Scripture, pointing us toward the grace of God, ultimately revealed in Christ.

Pastors, teachers, and individual Christians studying the book of Daniel will find this volume a welcome addition to their library.

"Bryan Chapell is a great Bible teacher. He helps us see our Messiah and his mission through the book of Daniel."--Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church, founder of Resurgence, cofounder of Acts 29, New York Times #1 bestselling author

"Chapell has been at the forefront of a resurgence in Christ-centered exposition, persuasively arguing that all of Scripture demonstrates the grace of God which culminates in the person and work of Jesus Christ.

"This book is spectacular. If you want to learn how to see Christ in all of Scripture and grace for all of life, or if you plan to read, teach, or preach Daniel, then be sure to read it."--Justin S. Holcomb, author of On the Grace of God, professor of theology at Reformed Theological Seminary and Knox Theological Seminary
