The book of Daniel is usually read as an encouraging story of resistance to worldly values, and as a roadmap to the end times. Bryan Chapell shows that there's much more to Daniel than these well worn paths, and puts the focus on what the book tells us about the grace of God in Christ. 224 pages.
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.
