In the mind of author James Carroll, on the other hand, the book of Daniel was “anonymously composed during the thick of the Maccabean war,” although it “pretends” to have been written much earlier.
It’s not like it’s uncommon for scholars to reject the Bible as God’s authoritative Word. But why won’t they just dismiss the book as a fraudulent work and walk away? Why is it so critical for them to put books like Daniel in another time period, as if composed by a phony?
They theorize about new time frames because of how accurate the books are prophetically!
Poor guy… trying… to make sense… but failing horribly so. Further, the purposed mischaracterizations are a little annoying.
