Daniel: Decoder of Dreams. By Donald K. Campbell. Wheaton, IL: SP Publications, Victor Books, 1977. 143 pp. Paper, $1.95.

The prophecies of Daniel hold mysteries that few completely comprehend. Campbell’s commentary, which devotes one chapter to each of Daniel’s twelve chapters, provides helpful insights to many of these mysteries. The author writes from a premillennial, dispensational viewpoint, which is best seen in his interpretation of the seventy weeks of Daniel 9. His practical approach to the book is probably one of the strongest aspects of the commentary. His solid exposition is mixed with illustrations that are timely and that truly illustrate. The charts that are included are helpful in communicating the author’s main points. This is an excellent treatment of the prophecy of Daniel and the average reader will profit greatly by the exposure to this work.

Creation: Evidence from Scripture and Science. By Roy B. Zuck. Wheaton, IL: Scripture Press, 1976. 16 pp., 12 overhead transparencies, 4 duplicating masters. Paper, $6.95.

In a complete packet of teaching materials on creation, Zuck has provided a well-documented series of five lessons as well as visual aids for communicating the content clearly.

The transparencies are well designed and refreshingly simple. They do, however, sometimes suffer from the use of type that is too small for accepted standards. This kit is a must for anyone teaching on the subject of creation and evolution.

This study guide includes very little discussion of each of the doctrinal points. With each of the topics there is a brief skeletal presentation. Most of the book, however, is made up of questions pertaining to each doctrine which the student is to answer after studying the Scriptures related to it.
