EXPLORING THE BOOK OF DANIEL by John Phillips. Published by Kregel Publications, Grand Rapids, MI. 2004.
John Phillips has given us a delightful nontechnical expository commentary of the key prophet of Daniel. It is very reader friendly, ideal for preachers, Sunday school teachers, and laymen. He writes from a preacher and teacher’s heart aimed at the ordinary believer. Daniel is just one commentary in a set that includes a number of Old Testament books, and the whole New Testament.
In this commentary your will find:
• A presentation of the prophet Daniel that is clear, practical, and concise. He has a gift that enables him to outline in a clear understandable way. (Outlining seems to be a gift and a valuable feature of his writings).
• His exposition is not a verse-by-verse presentation, as much as it is a section-by- section that teaches the basic content of Daniel in which the historical and the prophetic are weaved together in an understandable exposition of the book.
• His exposition is from a dispensational premillennial view, upholding the futurist view of the tribulation and millennium.
• It is a homiletical goldmine, practical with good illustrations of the truths contained in Daniel.
• He upholds the Divine inspiration and authoritative view of Daniel.
• He includes a number of appendixes which deal with such things as Daniel’s authorship; the testimony of Christ; Babylon; certain prophecies; and dates. There are 23 in all which are informative and concise.
This commentary will delight you heart and inform your head. It is an ideal, basic commentary for all.
[Thanks to Kregel for providing a free copy of this book for my honest review.]

The book is well written and very easy to follow. I personally found it one of the better books I have recently had a chance to read. Anyone who is understanding of the Bible can pick it up and learn about the life and times of one of God's more dedicated Servants.I absolutely enjoyed my journey back in time reading about not only Daniel, but some of the well known, most talked about people in History today.

I enjoy studying the book of Daniel and have read several on this very fascinating book of the Bible. John Phillips book on Daniel is very in-depth yet it is not too wordy or overcomplicated. Anyone interested in a study of prophesy especially Daniel should add this book to their library. I look forward to reading other books in the John Phillips Commentary series.
