The Teach the Text Commentary Series gives pastors the best of biblical scholarship and presents the information needed to move seamlessly from the meaning of the text to its effective communication. By keeping the discussion in each carefully selected preaching unit to six pages of focused commentary, the volumes allow pastors to quickly grasp the most important information. Each unit of the commentary includes the big idea and key themes of the passage; sections dedicated to understanding, teaching, and illustrating the text; and full-color illustrations, maps, and photos.

Teaching from Daniel can easily veer in two equally unhelpful directions: moralism and speculative intrigue. In this commentary, Pierce steers us away from distractions and toward the main point of Daniel: God's sovereign control over people, rulers, and history, even while his people endure suffering. God does not abandon his faithful servants, he holds the wicked accountable, and his kingdom will prevail. From these timeless truths come encouragement for today's believers to trust God more deeply and live more faithfully, regardless of current events.
