Daniel is a book both strange and compelling. It has attracted the curiosity and speculation of generations across the centuries. What kind of text is Daniel, and what difference should this make to our interpretation of it? Have Christians been correct to see what they have seen in Daniel over the centuries? What are the boundaries of legitimate interpretation, and what would we make of the often-neglected stories found in chapters 1-6 in such interpretation? These questions and others will be addressed as the listener is invited to understand what the book of Daniel has to say to the church and the world today. Lectures Include:

  • Introduction (2 Lectures)
