Tremper Longman III is the author of the Daniel volume in the NIV Application Commentary series.
This commentary is well-reviewed for its helpfulness to pastors in sermon preparation.
Longman is conservative and Reformed, though readers from any theological persuasion will find this volume valuable in understanding and applying Daniel.
This volume looks at the book of Daniel, revealing that God, not a human king, is ultimately in control—an appropriate message for today’s world of moral decline and political upheaval.
This book will help readers bridge the gap between the sixth century B.C. and the present day.
Dr. Longman is Distinguished Scholar of Biblical Studies at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, where he was the Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies for nineteen years before his retirement in 2017.
He earned his B.A. from Ohio Wesleyan University, his M.Div. from Westminster Theological Seminary, and his M.Phil. and Ph.D. from Yale University.
Prior to joining Westmont in 1998, Longman taught for eighteen years at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He has also served as visiting professor at The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology, an adjunct professor at Fuller Theological Seminary, and a guest lecturer at Regent College and the Canadian Theological Seminary.
Longman has contributed to a number of commentaries, including the New International Commentary on the Old Testament (The Song of Solomon and Ecclesiastes), NIV Application Commentary (Daniel), New International Biblical Commentary (Jeremiah and Lamentations), and the Baker Old Testament Wisdom series (Proverbs).
In addition, he was the senior translator for the wisdom books on the central committee that produced and now monitors the New Living Translation.

The NIVAC Series
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible.
But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own.
They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application.
The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done!
The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together.
This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context.
It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.
