Reviews - What do our customers think?
Iron sharpens iron  Apr 13, 2008
When it is understood that sacred history itself has throughout intermingled with it a prophetic element. Then any volume of work dealing with said subject matter, that embraces Hofmann's false notion, that history must be made the measure and rule of prophecy, will ultimately disappoint. And I find such is the case with Collins' treatment of the Book of Daniel. Although the "critical" view seems to hold the field today, it does in fact undermine the fundamental notion of Daniel's God who is revealed as unchangeably the same and the consummator of the world process.

However, from a purely sholastic point of view, Collins' work can not be lightly dismissed. It being, as the preface to the book states; "the fruit of more than two decades of research." And as such, I am confident, that all who thoughtfully engage this work will find that their efforts will prove the proverb true; "iron sharpens iron."

Additionally: Hermeneia should be congratulated on providing one of the clearest and accessable formats to be found in Bible commentaries.
 
Comprehensive and balanced  May 8, 2006
This is the most complete commentary on this book I've seen. Collins' discussion covers both the Hebrew and Old Greek texts of Daniel as well as the apocryphal additions. Even though the book is quite extensive, the manner in which it is written and organized makes it readibly understandable, even to those just being to look at the book or the attendant areas of apocalypticism or post-exilic Judaism. Collins approaches the text with a balanced historical-critical approach which fairly discusses views upheld by both more conservative and more liberal scholars than himself. Any discussion or study of the Book of Daniel which ignores this work will be seriously lacking.
 
Massive, authoritative, comprehensive  Dec 17, 2001
This book is massive, but justifies its size by giving a thorough and comprehensive survey of one of the strangest and most incomprehensible books of the Bible. It covers every aspect that would interest the diligent Bible scholar. Beginners will find it very tough going! Collins believes that Daniel himself had no hand in writing the book, but that it was the product of the age of the Maccabean struggle. However, he presents all the evidence and arguments fully, being fair to those of a more conservative viewpoint. What you will not find in this book is an attempt to show that Daniel was successfully predicting events in the 20th century or even further in the future.
