The book of Daniel contains familiar Bible stories and perplexing apocalyptic visions, yet both are held together by the doctrinal anchors of God’s sovereignty over the affairs of history and His promise to judge the world. History is unfolding according to God’s plan, and every one of us will stand before our Creator. These realities had bearing on how Daniel and his friends lived amid a pagan culture, and they have bearing on how we live today.
In volume two of this series, Alistair Begg explores the difficult prophetic passages that make up the second half of the book of Daniel. Although there is much disagreement among scholars about the meaning of these chapters, a commitment to keeping the main things the plain things will help us to grasp God’s message to us. As history marches on and we face trials, persecutions, and spiritual warfare, God still reigns supreme. And in Christ He has already guaranteed His victory.
