This commentary on Daniel reads very well.
The author writes from an eclectic point of view, neither Dispensational nor Reformed, and with "reserve and caution", (though his reformed background is obvious.)
It is written from the conservative evangelical position, eg, from the Introduction, "...in spite of the difficulties, I interpret the book from the conclusion that the prophecies come from the sixth century B.C."

Why 4 stars and not 5? Because the discussion on one very interesting section has been "ommitted", either by intent or on purpose.
Concerning the latter part of chapter 9, Gabriel's message concerning the "seventy sevens", the author gives a brief introduction, then states, "In the next section, we will delve further, but with great caution, into the morass of interpretations of this enigmatic oracle." Search as you may, you won't find any "further" discussion on this section!

It's surprising that the editors and proofreaders never spotted this glaring ommission, and it mars an otherwise excellent introductory-intermediate, narrative style Commentary.

For a short (six page), overview of some interpretations of the "seventy sevens", I would reccommend Joyce G. Baldwin's Commentary in the Tyndale series, although this would be my second choice commentary overall.

I bought this book to accompany a series of studies we had undertaken to find out about Daniel the man of God. I timeline of where Daniel and other named people fit in would be a bonus

An very good book for gaining deeper insight into the book of Daniel. An excellent tool for preparing Sunday school, preaching or general study.

Tremper Longman is an excellent author but £194 is a wee bit over priced. You could buy a barrel of oil, although it wouldn't do you much good spiritually, and would ruin your car...

Okay overdue an update. This is a helpful commentary as are many in this series, (interestingly he refers to Harold Campings failed predictions the first time around in the 80's) what I have foundhelpful is how he has thought through many of his applications and like many in this series prove really helpful.
