Daniel, a part of the Old Testament Library series, explores this often troubling book by way of section-by-section (often two to three verses at a time). The author's focus is almost entirely focused on explanation. Reference is made to specialized ancient documents and languages but only as source material and not as technical tools. Author provides own translation with some notes.
The Old Testament Library provides fresh and authoritative treatments of important aspects of Old Testament study through commentaries and general surveys. The contributors are scholars of international standing.
