This commentary has high value for the academic world and is of particular value for research. It is equally valuable from a devotional point of view.
Jerome was a Church Father and famous ecclesiastical author who died in A.D. 420. His writings cover nearly all the principal departments of Christian theology, but the most numerous and important belong to that of Biblical study. Among the latter is his Commentary on Daniel, which is one of the most interesting and significant of his expository works. It is frequently consulted by the learned even to this day. It here appears for the first time in the English language.
The manuscript here published in book form won form Dr. Archer the much coveted Certificate of Award presented by the Christian Research Foundation for the year's most important manuscript in the field of Biblical Research.

This was a difficult read for me. Jerome's style is circuitous. The notes in the book are arranged in such a convoluted way that I ended up just reading the text. Also, the content is difficult; I would need a much better grounding in ancient Greek, Persian, and Middle Eastern chronology to determine if any of Jerome's judgments about prophecies' fulfilments were likely or accurate.In short, I felt like I was just breezing through the book without much comprehension going on. I feel like I would need to read this book 2 or 3 times before I could say I'd accomplished a solid reading of it.
