Daniel – The Key to Prophetic Revelation by John Walvoord

Moody Publishers, 1989
320 pages
ISBN-10: 0802417531

In my opinion, this is the best commentary on the book of Daniel available today.  Dr. Walvoord provides a thorough overview of the cultural background and theological issues of the book.  He addresses the considerations of dating the book and demonstrates that Daniel is indeed a book that fortells the future kingdoms of Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome.  Walvoord’s essential argument in the book is that Daniel provides the framework in which biblical prophecy must be interpreted.  He accomplishes this goal while providing a thorough treatment of each chapter of Daniel.
