Book Description

Stuart Olyott, in his lively yet thorough style, shows that the prophecy of Daniel is basically an easy book to understand. His aim is to excite the reader to read Daniel for himself.

The book of Daniel is full of practical help – especially for believers who find themselves standing alone in the classroom or at work, or among their family and friends. Daniel tells us how to remain true to God in a hostile environment, and shows us how to live for Him when everything is against us. Daniel dared to stand alone. So can we.

The Welwyn Commentary Series is the Bible simply explained. This popular well established series provides clear and concise insight into the Scriptures from respected authors, many of whom are pastors and Bible teachers. The series is ideal for personal study, Bible class and sermon preparation and is highly recommended.

This is a well written and well researched commentary on the Book of Daniel. Stuart Olyott takes us through the first six chapters of narrative in the book. From the example of Daniel and his friends, he gives christians encouragement to stand firm in an environment, which is not friendly towards their faith. There then follows a chapter of 'intermission' before Olyott goes on to expound the later prophetical chapters of the book. Olyott handles these chapters extremely well. He identifies the various characters represented, and carefully unpacks the various passages. It's good to see a sensible approach to these chapters.

Therefore, this is a good commentary on Daniel. It should open our understanding on a number of issues. it should also encourage us to 'Dare to be a Daniel!'

5.0 out of 5 stars How to dare to stand alone 6 Nov. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are a lot of people out there professing themselves as Christians, who are obsessed with the prophesies contained in the book of Daniel. True, they are absolutely remarkable, as all the rest of the Bible, but I praise the Lord for leading Stuart Olyott to stress the even more remarkable thing. As Leonard Ravenhill put it, "The greatest miracle God can do is to take an unholy man from an unholy world, make that man holy, put that man back into the unholy world and keep him holy." This is what the book of Daniel is about and this is what the author keeps driving home over and over. Yes, there are amazing interpretations of the prophetic visions, but the most amazing lesson of the whole book is that Daniel was a man of holy character, a man of prayer and a man who read and knew his Bible, who dared to stand almost on his own in the midst of the worst demonic worship. If you are looking for wild and extravagant "revelations" of these days' charismatic super-Christians, who would give all to have Daniel's cloak, but would have none of his sackcloth and ashes, you would be disappointed. This is faithful biblical exposition, not the gibberish of today. But if you are striving for more holiness and encouragement in your walk with Christ, this will be of much comfort to your soul.

I notice quite a few folk have already reviewed this book, but having teached through Daniel a few months back I felt it might be worth thowing my contribution into the ring! I have valued so much of Stuart Olyott's teaching over the years and so when visiting the book of Daniel in his company it was always going to be an enjoyable experience. The teaching here is very clear. I don't always agree with all Stuart's conclusions, but this hardly matters as they are not to do with major issues doctrinally and Stuart always makes a very good case for what he writes, and apart from this the book of Daniel does throw up quite a few questions in some of the latter passages. Having also used Dale Ralph Davis's commentary on Daniel in BST it was interesting to note that I also differed from him in some conclusions. Interestingly enough, I often felt that they often make good cases for the opposite ends of the spectrum in some of the difficult passages. However, to get back to reviewing this commentary, where Stuart particularly comes into his own is in applying the text in what it should mean for us today in how we live and how we behave as Christians in a pagan world not dissimilar to Daniel's. So, despite a few differences, this commentary is definitely value for money and certainly immensely enjoyable to use in any preparation you may do in teaching the book.

This is a very good commentary which explains things in a clear and concise way. The writer is obviously a real believer and is very good at getting the basic tenure of the book and not getting too bogged down in details. For instance, he picks up on Daniel's faith and the fact that he never ceases to pray.
