Product Description

The Book of Daniel is a study, a commentary, of the book of Daniel in the Bible. Each verse and each sentence is dissected to unveil great prophecies which are coming to fruition today. It cannot be over-emphasized how relevant this book is to our current generation. The book of Daniel covers everything from the sorry state of today’s denominations, to corrupt governments who will not be changed before the end of the world as we know it. Many devastating things which will come to pass are clearly defined in this book. However, Daniel doesn’t stop here. We, the children of God, are shown the beautiful way of a true Christian’s life, as modeled by Daniel himself. We truly are blessed and must give all glory to God for His generous gift of salvation, through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Each verse in the Biblical Book of Daniel is studied in depth, in the same order as presented in the Bible. The author defines words and phrases typically ignored and expounds on the prophetic times and seasons well documented by Daniel. These prophecies are clear and undisputable, and as the author points out, Christ intended that we know about the times and seasons so we can watch for His return. This book is originally taken from a series of messages by Russell Martin Stendal, while in Colombia, South America. Originally written in Spanish, this book was later translated into English to encourage Christians in the western world.

About the Author
Russell Stendal was born in Minneapolis and raised on the mission field in Colombia, South America. He became a missionary jungle pilot at age nineteen. Almost ten years later he was kidnapped in 1983 by Marxist rebels and held hostage for five months. His book, Rescue the Captors, relates his experience, including how God worked in the hearts of the rebels.

Russell has written many other books, produced videos, and edited two Bible translations, the Spanish Reina-Valera 2000 and the Jubilee Bible in English.

Russell heads up the work of Colombia Para Cristo which operates 12 radio stations involving over 100 staff and coworkers and covering much of Latin America with the Gospel. A thriving underground church has developed in remote jungle areas of Colombia. New high gain antennas are now beaming the Gospel message deep into areas of deepening crisis across the borders of Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil as well as throughout Colombia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading June 18 2012
By Martus - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The Author takes a novel look at the Book of Daniel that I have never read anywhere. I have heard the best books and teachers will make you think and that you will at first disagree at points and be inspired at others. The Book of Daniel by Russell Stendal is just that kind of book. The book is loaded with precious jewels of insight. He brings a novel application to the contemporary church and makes you think hard about your faith in Christ and His Church. His contrast of the Kingdom of this world and the Kingdom of Christ is very good. I liked that the book is Christocentric. Be ready because you will probably question and disagree at points but I found that it added to the strength of the book in that it forces a person to think through their position. It is definitely a book worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lesson for all of God's children... Aug. 24 2012
By Deanna Dellinger - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a student of The Bible for 30 years or more and I've never heard an interpretation of the Book of Daniel quite like this one. Particularly in the the way Stendal describes the attitude of Daniel and the three brothers who were thrown into the furnace. Unlike many "religious" folks and their attitudes toward contemporary leaders today, they did not dishonor the Babylonian rulers or their God. They understood that Nebuchadnezzar was placed on the throne by God. Therefore, to rebel against or ever speak ill of God's chosen leader was an affront to God Himself and completely out of the question.

The only time Daniel or the brothers were disobedient to the king was when the king's decrees were specifically in conflict with God's commandments. So when the king erected his golden statue, the brothers refused to bow to it out of respect for and fear of The One, True God. Likewise, when Daniel was ordered to no longer pray to God, he was thrown into the lion's den by Darius, the Persian King. In every case when God's followers chose obedience to God, they were uninjured through whatever penalty was handed out for disobeying the kings of Babylon. The blazing furnace... the lion's den... it didn't matter; obedience to God trumps obedience to temporal leaders every time.

I think about this when I've had thoughts or react in a negative way toward our own national leaders... I must admit I am not always respectful of them in my speach and attitude. From reading Stendal's book, I have had to reexamine my attitude and realize our leaders have been placed in the seats of temporal power by God. I, therefore, am obligated to "give to Caesar what is Caesar, but give to God what belongs to Him."

Thank you Russell for bringing new life and relevance to a book of the Bible that is essential to those who wish to live according to the will of God. God's peace, brother.

I am reading the Kindle edition of Russell Stendal's The Book of Daniel. His challenge to apply lessons gleaned from the text of Daniel to Christian living today is most helpful and much needed, but I have found a flaw in his assertion while reading the first chapter of this book that I feel is noteworthy to mention. The author presents the argument in Chapter 1 that Ashpenaz was the chief of Nebuchadnezzar's eunuchs in which the sons of Israel including some of the royal family and of the nobles, youths including Daniel and his three friends were to learn the literature and language of the Chaldeans AND THAT THEY WERE MADE EUNUCHS. As I read this in the first chapter an immediate question came to mind in his discussion of Daniel 1:2-7 and is noteworthy to mention. All five of the Hebrew lexicons (see below) define the Hebrew word transliterated sârı̂ys as "official" or "eunuch." At the bottom of the full TWOT entry is the statement: "No certain evidence exists that Daniel and his three friends were made eunuchs (2Kings 20:17-18; Dan 1)."

The KJV translates the Hebrew word sârı̂ys 42 times: eunuchs, 15; eunuch, 2; chamberlains, 9; chamberlain, 4; officers, 7; officer, 5. A strong argument can be made that not all usage of this Hebrew word sârı̂ys should be rendered eunuch (eg. Gen. 37:36 and Gen. 39:1 Potiphar is a sârı̂ys, an officer of Pharoah, a captain of the guard who is married).

Strong's Hebrew Dictionary: H5631, סרס סריס, sârı̂ys sâris, saw-reece', saw-reece'
From an unused root meaning to castrate; a eunuch; by implication valet (especially of the female apartments), and thus a minister of state: - chamberlain, eunuch, officer. Compare H7249.
