Daniel 9:24-27 is a crux interpretum with as many problems as there are cells in a honeycomb. Charles Spurgeon was fond of saying about difficult Bible passages, “The harder the shell, the sweeter the kernel,” and that is true of this passage. Dr. Desmond Ford has studied Daniel for 60 years and has written thousands of pages about this Scripture book. Nonscholars, as well as the erudite lay-researcher, will benefit from this book, and will find many solutions to perplexing questions. Dr. Ford considers interpretations advocated by dispensationalists and groups such as Jehovah’s Witnesses, as well as the traditional view of the last two millenniums. The book’s main emphases are upon “Messiah the Prince” and his “atonement for iniquity” as applicable to both inaugurated (the Cross) and consummated (the Second Coming) eschatology.
