The book of Daniel is fundamental to any understanding of prophecy, and therefore of Scripture as a whole. The succession of the four mighty empires and the seventy weeks of years, were revelations entrusted to this prophet y the omniscient God. Certainly much of the New Testament, and especially the book of Revelation, would be inexplicable without the background of Daniel.

Professor John Heading in this volume explains in his usual lucid manner the meaning of the visions given to Daniel. Professor Heading gives meticulous attention to details, such as you would expect from a university teacher of mathematics, which he was. With two doctoral degrees from Cambridge Universityand years of teaching experience at the University of Wales, Professor Heading published dozens of technical books and papers.

This main joy was in the Word of God. These notes prepared for this weekly Bible class for students were rewritten in literary style for publication in book form. Mr. Heading has several other major commentaries currently available. In addition he served as joint editor of four other important books about the Bible, including Day by Day Through the New Testament and Day by Day Through the Old Testament. He was also the editor of “Precious Seed” for many years before his homecall.

Dr. John Heading is joint editor of the magazine entitled “Precious Seed.” He is an able minister of the Word of God, moving extensively amongst the Lord’s people, particularly in the South and East of England. For his secular employment the holds the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees of the University of Cambridge, and is Reader in Mathematics in the University of Southampton, where he has written many technical books and papers.
