The book of Daniel focuses on the sovereign hand of God in human history. The Lord's power exceeds that of the world's greatest empires, and his loving care for his people is unmatched on earth. Stephen R. Miller's commentary on Daniel is based on a thorough but reverent analysis of the Hebrew and Aramaic text. It has scholarly depth but is also rich with practical application and homiletical insights.

Review 1 for Daniel: New American Commentary [NAC]

C. E. Myers
Miller's commentary, which is written from a Dispensational (Progressive?) perspective is essential reading on the Book of Daniel. It is well-written and well-argued despite the limitations of the series. While no where near as detailed as the works by Collins (the now standard work on Daniel [Hermenia]), Montgomery (now somewhat outdated [ICC]), or Goldingay (WBC), Miller's work is possibly the best commentary now available on Daniel from a conservative premillennial perspective. Miller's work supercedes that of J. F. Walvoord, whose commentary is overly-dogmatic and untenable at several points. Miller's work should be used in conjunction with the execellent works by G. L. Archer (EBC) and Leon Wood. One can only hope for a forthcoming commentary on Daniel from a conservative premillennial perspective that is comparable to Collins in detail. Until then Miller's is the best choice.
