And behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom." (Daniel 7:13-14 ESV). Perceiving a hole in evangelical biblical theology that should be filled with a robust treatment of the book of Daniel, James Hamilton takes this chance to ...more

I can certainly recommend With the Clouds of Heaven as an introduction to Daniel, its literary features, and its place within the canon. This would serve as an excellent textbook for a Daniel class, but any reader would benefit from looking at Daniel through such a wide-angle lens. Hamilton offers a fresh evangelical contribution to the vast literature on Daniel. It’s unavoidable in a book on Daniel that the author’s idios

I found much to appreciate in Hamilton's biblical theology of Daniel. Hamilton forthrightly holds to the early date for the book and defends the necessity of this understanding for right interpretation of the book. Hamilton also has his eye on both the theology of Daniel and how that theology connects to the rest of the canon. Finally, I found the book full of exegetical insights. For instance, I thought his treatment of the parallels between various visions well-done.

I have three criticisms, ho

Summary: A true study of the biblical theology of Daniel, including its structure, key themes, how the book influences both early Jewish literature and the New Testament, and how it connects to key themes throughout scripture.

In this book, James M. Hamilton, Jr. sets out to give us an evangelical biblical theology of the book of Daniel. He begins by assuming a canonical approach to the book of Daniel, that Daniel would have had access to most of the works that preceded his, and he contends, agai

Daniel is one of the best loved books in the Bible. From the well-known stories of Daniel in the lion’s den and his three friends in the fiery furnace that fascinate children to Daniel’s prophecy of seventy weeks that challenges even the brightest of scholars, Daniel has something for everyone. For these reasons and more Daniel has received no shortage of attention. And yet there was still something missing.

Hamilton explains in his preface that when he taught a doctoral level course on Daniel he

As a canonical biblical theological study of Daniel Hamilton's book is a very helpful aide that fills a hole in evangelical scholarship. The book is most helpful in placing Daniel within the larger biblical story. It's particularly valuable in showing how the book draws on OT imagery and narrative and then showing how the NT writers draw on Daniel. If I were preaching through Daniel I'd want this book at hand for this material. The book isn't an exhaustive study and I suppose it succeeds in ...more

Dr. Hamilton offers a most invaluable resource for students of Holy Scripture. While not being new or novel for the sake of novelty or the speculative, Hamilton has incorporated a fairly comprehensive biblical theology in his analysis of Daniel, much of it in dialogue with modern scholarship and thinking. I commend Dr. D.A. Carson for supporting this project. Hamilton has not disappointed since I read his large volume, God's Glory in Salvation through Judgment: A Biblical Theology.
