Here we have a well written and well researched commentary on the Book of Daniel. Stuart Olyott takes us through the first six chapters of narrative in the book. From the example of Daniel and his friends, he gives christians encouragement to stand firm in an environment, which is not friendly towards their faith. There then follows a chapter of 'intermission' before Olyott goes on to expound the later prophetical chapters of the book. Olyott handles these extremely well. He identifies the various characters represented, and carefully unpacks the various passages. It's good to see a sensible approach to these chapters. Therefore, this is a fine commentary on Daniel. It should open our understanding on a number of issues.
