I picked up Rushdoony's commentary on Daniel and Revelation and couldn't put it down. It was a tremendously delightful, inspiring, convicting, and insightful read. It can't be stated enough that the Christian faith is an eschatologically optimistic one. We all too often have a pessimistic view of end times stuff; it tends to be much doom and gloom, rather than the victory which Scripture describes it to be. I found many quotable sections, and if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you probably

A commentary on Daniel, Revelation, Matthew 24, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, Psalm 149 and several other texts specifically describing the Gospel Age including helpful explanations and summaries of concepts such as the Kingdom, the tree of life, the first resurrection, etc.
Rushdoony’s comments, though by no means exhaustive, provide basic exegesis on these so-often misunderstood passages laying the groundwork for a biblical understanding. Scripture was not written to satisfy our curiosity, to give us a

R.J.Rushdoony does a great job with the Book of Daniel and Revelation. He has a very solid view of these books and also of what the Bible calls "End Times." He explains very clearly that the Bible is not given to men to satisfy our curiosity, but to drive us to God and to duty. Daniel and Revelation are books that assure us of God's victory over sin and death. I highly recommend this book for those desiring a no nonsense teaching on these two books of the Bible. ...more

A helpful overview of the linking concepts between Daniel, Revelation, Matthew 24, and other passages. His emphasis on the need for the church to separate from worshipping the state was phenominal. His view on the Church's mission is spot on.

Not really a verse-by-verse commentary, it's more of a concept-by-concept commentary. This gives a bird's eye view of the passages, but there's not much in the way of exegetical explanation for some of the conclusions made.

This is an excellent study on the books of Daniel and Revelation by Rev. R.J. Rushdoony. Though I do not share Rushdoony's theonomic viewpoint, his philosophical worldview is challenging and thought-provoking. I especially appreciated Dr. Rushdoony's treatment of Revelation 20. Note the following excellent summary, "The book of Revelation presents the kingdom age, not as a millennial pipe dream, but as a period of struggle, wherein Christ's Church victoriously marches against the enemy, its Rede ...more
I read this back-to-back with Days if Vengeance: good idea.

No spoilers here, except to say, it provides "ballance" to the familiar Preterist position.

Loved every word, and will stay close on my shelf as a frequent reference.

“Only in the biblical revelation is the tension between law and love resolved, with vast social and historical implications, in the person and work of Jesus Christ. By His perfect righteousness and His vicarious atonement, the strictest requirements of law and justice were fully met and fulfilled, and the statutes of God observed to every jot and tittle, and yet, at one and the same time, the love of God unto salvation was manifested in and through Him. The cross thus is the symbol of the unity of law and love in Jesus Christ and of the full requirement and mutual integrity of both.” 2 likes
