In The Days of These Kings is a fascinating explanation of the prophecy passages of Daniel. Jay Rogers’ explanation verse-by-verse of the detailed historical fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecies is a helpful corrective to the speculative sci-fi fantasy scenarios of modern-day prophecy pundits. He reveals Daniel’s context in relation to the other prophets of the Old Testament as well as Jesus’ Olivet Discourse and Revelation. He shows how it all fits perfectly together. This is exactly what I have been longing for in my own research. I’m telling all my readers to get this book.
The overarching message of Daniel is that Jesus the Messiah is even now ruling over the nations. He is the King of kings. Daniel tells us that Messiah’s kingdom will advance in the whole world from “generation to generation” (Daniel 4:4,34). Christ’s dominion is “given to the people of the saints of the most High” (Daniel 7:22). Our purpose then is to see “all people, nations, and languages … serve and obey him” (Daniel 7:14,27).
This comprehensive work offers a fascinating look at the book of Daniel in preterist perspective. Great attention is paid to the writings of ancient and modern historians and scholars to connect the dots and demonstrate the continuity of Daniel’s prophecy with all of Scripture.
