As the Holman New Testament Commentary came to completion in January, 2001, people were already asking, 'Where is the Old Testament Series?' Well, here is the first volume--Daniel by Kenneth O. Gangel. We know for Christian communicators--lay teachers and pastors--time is their most precious asset. And in designing these commentaries, General Editor Max Anders and the authors have kept the needs of lay teachers and pastors in mind. Features include: in-depth content in a user-friendly format; salient quotes; compelling illustrations; lucid Bible exposition; principles contained in a passage of Scripture; applications of that passage; a teaching plan for that passage; and discussion starters.
