Daniel (Reformed Expository Commentary)
Duguid, Iain M.
“I’m a pastor, not a scholar. When you read Iain Duguid, it is clear he is both. Like his other works, this commentary is a rare blend of insightful exegesis and discerning application. What’s more, with Iain’s guidance you’ll find the glories of Christ shining through texts that can otherwise appear obscure and irrelevant. This book will educate pastors, edify Christians, and advance the proclamation of the gospel.”—C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace MinistriesSee All
“Readers will be grateful for the reverence and care given to the sacred text, plus the wise application to today’s church midst her Babylons. This is a must–read for anyone desiring to understand and live in the dazzling light of Daniel. Warmly commended.”—R. Kent Huhges, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, ILSee All

The book of Daniel is both familiar and unfamiliar to many Christians. The stories of the fiery furnace and Daniel in the lion’s den are the staples of children’s Bible story books and Sunday school classes. Yet the latter chapters of Daniel’s vision are more unfamiliar and daunting to most believers, who may have been exposed to a variety of end–times speculations constructed from an amalgam of these texts and others drawn from elsewhere in the Bible.
But Iain M. Duguid reminds Christians that Daniel gives us more than moral lessons or a prophetic timetable. The whole of the book points us to Christ, whether as the one greater than Daniel who has perfectly lived an exilic life of service and separation for us or as the exalted heavenly Son of Man who took flesh amongst us.
