This textbook leads the student through the historical and prophetic chapters of the book, explaining the messages God gave Daniel. At the end of each chapter is a list of supplementary reading material and questions for further study and discussion.
With twelve chapters, the book of Daniel is the shortest of the four Major Prophets. Yet, it has produced more discussion and literary output than any other biblical book of corresponding length. Three times in the book, Daniel is called “greatly beloved” (Dan. 9:23; 10:11, 19).
The book is filled with timeless truths that are just as relevant today as when they were written 2,500 years ago, and we do well to pay close attention to them. Ellen G. White repeatedly called attention to the study of the book of Daniel: “As we near the close of this world’s history, the prophecies recorded by Daniel demand our special attention, as they relate to the very time in which we are living.” Ellen G. White, Prophets and Kings (Mountain View, CA: Pacific Press, 1943), 547.
