Product Description

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pastorally Strong 9 Feb 2010
By Roy J. Meek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Focuses on the trees and loses the forest 31 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Generally, the Preaching the Word Commentaries are some of my favorites. This one by Rodney Stortz was disappointing.

First off, I believe Rodney is a very godly man who loves his congregation and has been used greatly by God. I think his own trials and endurance through hardships are a great testimony to his faithfulness. If I had a chance to know him personally, I have no doubt that my respect for him would increase even more.

In the commentary though, he tends to allow his own trials and hardships to bear too much influence on his interpretation and application of the texts. For instance, his treatment of Daniel 3 (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and the fiery furnace) misses the point of keeping steadfast faith and fidelity to God in the midst of governmental and peer pressure which jeopardized their lives. Stortz's application and illustrations, though, all deal with having faith that God will heal us from sickness or be with us even if we don't find healing. This really is a completely different subject. Even though his illustrations are very heartfelt, they miss the point of Daniel 3.

Additionally, Stortz tends to spend lots of time illustration or applying short phrases or comments made in the biblical text, and very little time commenting on the story's main points. His treatment of Daniel and the Lion's den in chapter 6 is a key example, where he spends nearly half his chapter on points such as "Daniel was Not Corrupt," "Daniel was Not Negligent," and "Daniel Prayed in Faith Toward Jerusalem."

Stortz also makes odd comparisons. For instance, a running theme through chapter 6 is that he compares Daniel to the faithful family sedan which does its job day in and day out but never really draws anybody's attention, and continually applies that to us to live quiet faithful lives that do not necessarily draw attention (a fine application from other parts of the Bible). Yet I don't know that you can really make that comparison to a guy who's work attracted so much attention that he was promoted to 2nd most powerful man in the nation which caused other powerful men in the nation to want him deposed...

Additionally, the commentary is very very light exegetically. And the exegetical points he does make are, again, often overshadowed by his own life experiences. He seems to draw exegetical conclusions based on the encouragement he personally needed from the text for his hardships rather than what the text was actually trying to communicate.

I recommend the NIV Application Commentary on Daniel by Tremper Longman III for a much more consistent, exegetical, and applicable treatment of Daniel.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Bible study teachers or students of the Bible 12 Nov 2013
By Bibliophile - Published on Amazon.com

In the tradition of the Preaching the Word series, this commentary explains each text from Daniel in an insightful way with lots of great illustrations and application along the way. Great for pastor or teachers but also wonderful study helps for lay people who want to dig deeper into the Word. I highly recommend the whole series and this volume didn't disappoint.
