IVP Academic Daniel: Tyndale Old Testament Commentary [TOTC]

While the book of Daniel is part of the Old Testament, and listed as one of the prophets, it certainly is also an odd fit with both. It is not concerned with covenant and obedience to it as is the Pentateuch. And, unlike the prophets it contains no covenant enforcement (riv oracles), but yet, unlike 95% of the Old Testament prophetic literature, it is eschatological. Moreover, its eschatological scope mirrors that of Revelation and its comprehensive view of space and time mirror Genesis 1-3. Daniel's visions provide this are the impetus for this view and through them is unveiled the divine view of history.

With this in mind, the prospect of studying the book of Daniel seems both daunting and fascinating. It will certainly be a unique experience, and one that will undoubtedly pay strong dividends. In the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary on Daniel author Joyce Baldwin takes on a illuminating and informative journey through the book of Daniel and his world while drawing out and explaining the unique characteristics of the book, its historical context, and its theological power.

Baldwin's scholarly acumen, and eloquent, yet lucid, writing will make this an excellent edition to biblical libraries for all levels of readers whether scholarly, pastoral, or laity. Moreover, the entire TOTC series is an exceptional resource for churches and, especially those charged with educating the church.

This is a good commentary on the book of Daniel. The author, the late Joyce Baldwin offers some good insight not found in other commentaries.
