Written by a renowned Christian scholar of Jewish heritage, this eye-opening commentary solves many of the new critical challenges to the Old Testament book and sheds new light on many aspects of the cryptic prophecies of Daniel. Fresh insight is provided regarding such questions as: Whatever happened to Daniel's tomb? Is Michael "one of the chief princes" or is he "the first of the chief princes"? Why did King Nebuchadnezzar forget his dream? Why did Daniel undertake his three-week fast during Passover? Author Jacques Doukhan re-creates the staggering world of Babylon, explains obscure allusions, and finds hidden patterns within the prophesies that help to clarify their meaning. His research in ancient Jewish sources and knowledge of the original languages makes this book a worthy contribution to your prophecy library. Want to understand the book of Daniel better than ever? Well ... here's your chance!
