Book Description

The Book of Daniel is one of the most important ancient texts in the world. It is rich with practical information for followers of Christ, as well as being one of the most technical books in the Bible with regard to prophecy.

Chris White goes verse by verse through Daniel with meticulous detail, especially in regard to the prophetic portions. He expands on many long held positions held by conservative expositors, while departing from them on a few others. Notably his “contemporaneous beast view” of Daniel 7, as well as a view on Daniel 9 that proposes to solve some long standing problems for conservatives like himself.

White focuses in on the Antichrist at many points in the book with an intent to separate tradition from scripture about this figure. Its clear that White believes that the church can know a good deal more about the geopolitical situation just prior and during the rise of Antichrist. White offers a number of insights to the reader about this awful figure that aren't often articulated by modern prophecy teachers…but should be.

White is a very conservative premillennial / dispensational expositor, holding to a strict "face value" Hermeneutic. He stays away from sensational or speculative matters, and makes sure to give the reader plenty of options, especially in the occasions when he departs from traditional interpretations.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best commentary on Daniel available 20 Aug. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As expected from Chris White a very readable exposition of Daniel which is both clear and unambiguous. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone interested in end times eschatology from a premillenial prewrath perpective.
Chris's argument's that Daniel 7 should not be regarded as a recapitulation of Daniel 2 are well presented and convincing i.e. that the final 4 empires are not temporal but contemporaneous. I am also convinced by his arguments, that Sir Robert Anderson's "The Coming Prince" was wrong, in that Cyrus began the 70 weeks, Nehemiah was "the prince to come" and that the "cutting off" refers to the 2nd temple and not the messiah. I also agree that the antichrist must try and will succeed in duping Israel into thinking that he actually is their messiah.
Please buy this book and read it. It will be a revelation to you when, for the first time, elements of bible prophecy start to make sense.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Commentary on Daniel 9 17 May 2014
By William Struse - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought Chris Whites book Daniel - A Commentary in an effort to understand his view on the prophecy of 70 weeks. This review will focus chiefly on his commentary of Daniel 9. Concerning the rest of the book there are parts I agree with, some I do not and some which I still need to search the Scriptures for myself. Personally, I appreciate reading other believers perspective on Bible prophecy because it often helps me see the strengths and weakness of my own understanding.

Let me say upfront I disagree with much of what Mr. White wrote about the prophecy of Daniel 9 from both a macro and micro perspective. I am a firm believer in the premise that the "spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Yeshua. In my opinion Mr. Whites biggest mistake in his interpretation of Daniel 9 is his attempt to change the focus of the prophecy from the Messiah Yeshua to Nehemiah and the anti-christ.

More specifically there are several areas where his interpretation fails to meet a reasonable evidentiary threshold:

1. Mr. White gives no secular dates to back up his theory. He names secular rulers like Cyrus and Biblical heroes like Nehemiah but he provides the reader with no basis upon which to determine his reasoning.
2. This interpretation requires a modified yet unexplained Persian chronology. This further requires a total disregard of the known eclipse records.
3. Mr. Whites interpretation requires a 360 day lunar year. This is problematic for several reasons.

This type of lunar year is nowhere mentioned in the Bible. From the 5 months of 150 days mentioned in Genesis he extrapolates a 12 month 360 day (lunar) year. Further this assumes the month was not intercalated thus making it "vague" or wandering. (This type of year moved through the seasons.) Though some ancient cultures did have such calendars many understood the need to intercalate the 5 missing days, the so called "five days over the year". According to Mr. Whites theory this lunar calendar must have been understood during the 2nd temple era even thought an intercalated Biblical lunar/solar year was kept as proscribed by the law. (That an intercalated calendar was kept from the time of the Exodus onward is proven by the fact that YHWH anchored the Biblical year in the agricultural cycle of Abib. (Exo 13; 23; 34 etc.) An intercalated year is also evidence by the 13th month of Ezekiel.

4. Mr. White tries to show that Nehemiah (in the 21st year of "Artaxerxes") came to Jerusalem 49 years after the decree of Cyrus. This is problematic for several reasons. First this ignores the departure of the shekinah in the 6th year of Ezekiel (his captivity) which began a period of 70 years of Divine indignation. This period of 70 years the prophet Zechariah records as ending in the 2nd year of Darius Hystaspes. (circa 520 BC.) Further this interpretation needlessly confuses the 2nd temple chronology and ignores known eclipse records which confirm the reign of Nebuchadnezzar and Darius "the Great".

5. Mr. White's theory completely ignores the only contextually relevant "commandment to restore and build Jerusalem" of the 2nd temple era. A "commandment" that was given by YHWH in the 2nd year of Darius, witness by both Haggai and Zechariah and confirmed by Ezra 6:14.

In summary, thought Mr. White's commentary on Daniel has some valuable insights his interpretation of Daniel 9 takes the most important Messianic prophecies in the Bible and minimizes the Messiah, ignores the eclipse records, arbitrarily modifies the Persian era and hopelessly confuses the Biblical chronology of the 2nd temple era, all without a single foundational statement of chronological certainty. I've read many interpretations of Daniel 9 over the years and this was one of the most difficult to untangle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 21 Jan. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just started following Chris White and it has been a pleasure. This commentary on Daniel was by far the best I've read. I'm going to have to go back and read and listen to all of his teachings. Straightened out a few things for me regarding bible prophecy. If your open for requests I would love a revelation commentary next. Fantastic work.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Addition to Your Collection 13 Jan. 2014
By Robert D. Mclaurine - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
All of Chris White's books are conservative, challenging, and well thought out. The coverage of Daniel 7 and 11 breaks exciting new ground. It alone is worth purchasing this book. An excellent commentary that reminds me of the J Vernon McGee style of writing.

By Edwin Combs - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I first listened to Chris White on his Podcast I thought I was going to disagree with him, but once I gave him a serious listening to I really saw he had some very good insightful views of Daniel that I haven't heard from anyone else. the book is the same way.

Very well documented and studied book. Wonderful interpretation, non-excitable authoritative writing. Mr. White is a serious student of Biblical and world history.
