Authors of books on biblical prophecy attempt to convince readers that the end of the world is near. The most popular theory promoted by Christian interpreters is one that relies heavily on the book of Daniel. These interpreters contend that Daniel prophesies:
Utilizing works of biblical scholarship, author Brodrick D. Shepherd scrutinizes this popular theory at its source--the five symbolic visions in Daniel. In detailed discussion, he emphasizes the importance of interpreting these visions within their historical and literary contexts. Key areas of analysis include:
TABLE OF CONTENTS
"Brodrick D. Shepherd's Beast, Horns and Antichrist is an absolute MUST for those interested in analyzing alleged prophecy fulfillments about the "last days." One of the best things about Shepherd's book is that it is so simple and yet scholarly that one does not have to have an extensive knowledge of the Bible to understand it."
"When analyzed in context, the "prophecies" of Daniel fall into place so easily that their proper interpretations seem obvious. For example, Shepherd identifies the "prince who is to come" as Antiochus IV Epiphanes; the "annointed one cut off" as the High Priest Onias III; and the "strong covenant" as one made between Antiochus and apostate Jews. Although more sensational interpreters see Jesus and the "Antichrist" at every turn, Shepherd's interpretations are, in my opinion, much more historically accurate."
"If you want sensationalism, don't buy this book; but if you want the truth, this book is required reading."
"I first of all want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing your book Beasts, Horns and the Antichrist. Of all of the books I've read recently, yours has had the greatest and most radical impact on my thinking concerning the Book of Daniel. For years, having been steeped in Dispensationalism most of my life, I had wrestled with many of the same problems you addressed in the book. So much of the "orthodox" interpretations of prophecy just doesn't work, and worst of all, although I knew they didn't, I still attempted to make them "fit" with Scripture. Indeed, I cannot any longer."
"I have just finished reading your account of the 70 weeks prophecy of Daniel. I found your analysis of the book of Daniel very interesting reading and very persuasive."
"Thanks for making your book on Daniel available on-line. I found it, by God's providence, at just the right time. I'm leading a study for my Sunday morning Bible class related to end-time subjects. Most recently we have touched on the current "sensationalism" and the "industry" built on speculation about Christ's return, at the expense of scholarly considerations of the text. Your work will help us."
