I am an ordained pastor in Cornerstone Churches in Wisconsin.  I’m also an M.Div. student at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, about half way through the program, and moving slowly since I take classes less than half-time. I am a magazine publisher for my day job, and I love what I’m doing. But my real passion is talking theology or philosophy. I started this blog because I don’t have a lot of people that I can discuss this stuff with regularly.

I have been married to my beautiful wife, Diana, for over 11 years.  We have seven wonderful children and we home-school. When I’m not working, or reading, I enjoy playing the guitar or watching Burn Notice.

    I saw your blog entitled “N. T. Wright Wrecked My Life” and decided to try to contact you. I am planning to do some articles on Daniel for planetpreterist.com that will be centered around the theme of repudiating the view toward Daniel held by Wright and others of similar persuasion. If you are interested in dialoging with me, please send me your email contact.

    The book of Daniel reveals the history of Israel, not the history of the church (except that the church is promised as an everlasting kingdom in chapter 7 of Daniel). Those who have tried to make Daniel something besides a history of Israel have totally missed the mark. Also, those who do not believe in predictive prophecy will never be able to understand Daniel. The chrono-specific Danielic prophecies have been greatly misinterpreted over the years for that reason, and because, as the Book of Daniel itself tells us, the prophecies were sealed up by God centuries ago, to be understood fully only at the time of the end, which is now (the modern ingathering of Jews to Israel is the evidence showing that we are living in the time of the end). I’ve written a new book (“Daniel Unsealed: An Explanation of the Chrono-specific Prophecies in the Book of Daniel, chapters 7-12”) that explains the prophecies and the way God is using Israel in history, including our own time. It simply takes the chrono-specific prophecies (all of them) and matches each with its fulfillment in history. I might add, all of the prophecies in Daniel have now been fulfilled, with the exception of the resurrection of Daniel mentioned in chapter 12 of Daniel, and I explain them in the book. You can check out Chapter One of my book at http://www.prophecysociety.org and decide for yourself if it’s of any interest to you. Chapter One explains how the capture of the Temple Mount in 1967 was the fulfillment of chapter 8 in Daniel. God bless your search for His truth.

      Dear Daniel,

      When Daniel was commanded to “conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time” (v12:4), what do you think Daniel may have done to carry out that command?

    I read your post on interpreting Paul in Gal 4:21-31. I like your approach. I would like to stay in contact. The only consideration I am still grappling with in the Galatians passage is how allegory is this context may not be the same as is understood today, that is seeking a meaning behind the text, or spiritualizing everything.
    Dan Porter.
