This book is a concise and readable commentary on the Old Testament Book of Daniel. Daniel himself was a young Jewish captive who became a prominent statesman in the administrations of most of the Babylonian emperors, and the early Persian emperors too. He lived in momentous times of world empires, and also prophesied a great deal about the end times of world history. There are many current indications that we today are approaching the end times of which he wrote. This means that the Book of Daniel is very relevant to us, and therefore we need to understand its contents and message urgently. Also, Daniel is a good example to Christians today of how a faithful believer should live for God in a troubled world. His autobiography is his spiritual legacy to us, which we would do well to study carefully and give heed to at this time.
