About

The book of Daniel isn't ultimately about Daniel--it's about the gospel of Jesus.

Often we read the book of Daniel in one of two ways--either as a book about a heroic man whose righteousness should inspire us to keep the faith, or as a roadmap to the end times that can, through careful study, tell us the day and hour (or nearly so) of Christ's return. Both, says Bryan Chapell, are sadly missing the bigger picture--that God is the hero of this story, and he is in the midst of his unrelenting plan to rescue his people from their sin and its consequences. Pastors, teachers, and any Christian who wants to learn how to faithfully understand the book of Daniel without getting derailed by hero worship or prophetic mysteries will value this grace-centered approach.

"A tour de force of biblical theology. This is an example of the kind of preaching that should be found in every pulpit."--R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Chapell has been at the forefront of a resurgence in Christ-centered exposition, persuasively arguing that all of Scripture demonstrates the grace of God which culminates in the person and work of Jesus Christ. In this new and welcomed volume, Dr. Chapell goes beyond merely telling us how this can be done to showing us what such an interpretation actually looks like."--Justin Taylor, blogger at Between Two Worlds, coauthor of The Final Days of Jesus

"This book is spectacular. If you want to learn how to see Christ in all of Scripture and grace for all of life, or if you plan to read, teach, or preach Daniel, then be sure to read it."--Justin S. Holcomb, author of On the Grace of God, professor of theology at Reformed Theological Seminary and Knox Theological Seminary

Bryan Chapell (PhD) is senior pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church in Peoria, Illinois, as well as president emeritus at Covenant Theological Seminary and distinguished professor of preaching at Knox Theological Seminary. He also teaches at Covenant Theological Seminary, Reformed Theological Seminary, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Chapell is a widely traveled speaker and the author of numerous books, including the bestseller Christ-Centered Preaching and Christ-Centered Worship.


Endorsements

"Bryan Chapell has done it again. This new book is a tour de force of biblical theology. Chapell takes the character of Daniel and the Old Testament book in his name and reveals that what is found in that book, what we should see in Daniel, is not a mere hero but a figure in redemptive history. This is an example of the kind of preaching that should be found in every pulpit. A good place to start is reading this book."

R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"For several years Bryan Chapell has been at the forefront of a resurgence in Christ-centered exposition, persuasively arguing that all of Scripture demonstrates the grace of God which culminates in the person and work of Jesus Christ. In this new and welcomed volume, Dr. Chapell goes beyond merely telling us how this can be done to showing us what such an interpretation actually looks like. The result is a gospel-centered clinic in how to interpret a fascinating (and at times confusing) Old Testament book in an Emmaus Road way."

Justin Taylor, blogger, Between Two Worlds; coauthor, The Final Days of Jesus

"This book is spectacular. If you want to learn how to see Christ in all of Scripture and grace for all of life, or if you plan to read, teach, or preach Daniel, then be sure to read it. Bryan Chapell's passion is to help us see the presence of the gospel throughout the Bible, and he does exactly that for us here. The Gospel according to Daniel is a gift to the church. Chapell finds and fleshes out the gospel of grace in the book of Daniel in ways that are persuasive, powerful, practical, and pastoral."

Justin S. Holcomb, author of On the Grace of God; professor of theology, Reformed Theological Seminary and Knox Theological Seminary
