    Expert help for understanding the Bible

    Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Hebrew and Aramaic transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for digging deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. You will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

    The book of Daniel is filled with mysterious imagery, stories of faithful perseverance, and visions of the future. In order to understand this complex book, it is essential to be familiar with the history of Israel from the exile in the sixth century B.C. to the Maccabean revolt in the second century B.C.—a period with which most people are unfamiliar. William Nelson expertly fills in the gaps as he takes you section by section on a fascinating journey through this apocalyptic book.
