In this commentary, Pierce steers us away from distractions and toward the main point of Daniel: God's sovereign control over people, rulers, and history, even while his people endure suffering. God does not abandon his faithful servants, he holds the wicked accountable, and his kingdom will prevail. From  Read more...

Abstract:

Teaching from Daniel can easily veer in two equally unhelpful directions: moralism and speculative intrigue. In this commentary, Pierce steers us away from distractions and toward the main point of Daniel: God's sovereign control over people, rulers, and history, even while his people endure suffering. God does not abandon his faithful servants, he holds the wicked accountable, and his kingdom will prevail. From these timeless truths come encouragement for today's believers to trust God more deeply and live more faithfully, regardless of current events. -- Back cover.
