“It is good to see this series of non–technical commentaries. Such books are greatly needed. I look forward to using this series, especially among young Christians.”
– Dick Lucas, St Helen’s, London
Andrew Reid is well–equipped to write for this series, having pursued post–graduate studies in the history of the period in which Daniel was written.
Andrew’s commentary on Daniel is the end product of some years of ‘field testing’ the material with various campus groups among whom he works as a university chaplain.
He is deeply conscious that the books of the old Testament must be read through Christian eyes. So understood, Daniel will prove nourishing to Christians today. No part of the Old Testament is more significant to Jesus than Daniel. Here we meet the kingdom of God, one like a Son of Man, the Saints of the Most High and the Abomination of Desolation.
I am confident that Kingdoms in Conflict will prove a significant and outstanding addition to this series.
