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.

About the Author

A native of Great Britain, Iain Duguid served as a missionary in Liberia, West Africa, before studying for the ministry. He completed a PhD in Old Testament at Cambridge University, and subsequently planted a church on an inner-city housing estate in Oxford, England. He has taught Hebrew and Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi and at Westminster Seminary California, before teaching at Grove City College, in Grove City, Pennsylvania. He is also an ordained minister in the Associated Reformed Presbyterian Church.

While working at the seminary in California, he also planted and pastored a church in Fallbrook. Shortly after he began at Grove City, he planted Christ Presbyterian Church. In his classes, Dr. Duguid is eager to help students learn not merely how to translate texts from Hebrew into English but also how to preach Christ from those ancient texts in ways that minister to the hearts of contemporary congregations.
