Daniel 11:31 (and elsewhere) refers to "the abominable thing that causes desolation." This appears to refer to the erection of a statue of Zeus in the Jerusalem temple in 167 BCE, and would indicate that the book was written later than that date.

 frontline: apocalypse!: apocalypticism explained: the book of daniel
And in fact the Book of Revelation is largely a Christian interpretation of the Book of Daniel.
In Daniel's interpretation, however, these refer to the succession of kingdoms after the Babylonians, the very kingdoms that are in charge of the Jews, ending with the Seleucids, who are the feet of clay, whom the forces of God crumble, cause the statue to collapse and this gives rise to a new kingdom of Israel.
And Daniel was, as a book, really responding to the political crisis of Antiochus Epiphanes and the political forces of war that are all about.

The date of the writing of the book may be inferred from the following considerations: It was not written by one of the exiles, for many portions of the text could not have been composed by a contemporary of the second king of the Babylonian empire and his immediate successors.
Nor would a contemporary of Nebuchadnezzar and his successors have written the stories of the Book of Daniel in the form in which they exist, since they contain many details that can not be harmonized with the data furnished in other historical sources.
The Book of Daniel was written during the persecutions of Israel by the Syrian king Antiochus Epiphanes.

 The Date of the Book of Daniel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
For instance, where the book of Daniel is concerned with the activities of the king of the north the Maccabean literature is concerned with Jewish opposition to the Seleucid king.
On top of that Daniel is pictured as a "loyal subject of the king" and the story serves "to set a model of Diaspora life"; this is of course hardly the portrait one would suggest as a model of behavior during a time of persecution to the point of extermination.
It is sometimes claimed that because the book of Daniel is not found in the books of the Prophets but rather in the books of Writings that this means the books was not considered canonical by the Jews and that this is evidence of its late date-see Rennie for instance.

 Book of Daniel defended
Daniel would have been the highest-placed and most recognized of the Jews of the Exile; he would have been taken to Babylon around 605 BC, and Zeke started his ministry in 593 - plenty of time to get a good rep! Finally, the linguistic data is against the identification with the Ugaritic Dan.
In Daniel 6:8 the writer says "in accordance with the laws of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be repealed." This would not make any sense by saying the king would be bound by the laws of the Persians as well unless they were a composite empire.
Daniel's interpretation of the dream depicted the iron kingdom as one that would "crush and shatter all these [prior kingdoms]" but would itself become "a divided kingdom" (2:40-41) as symbolized by the feet that were part clay and part iron.

 Amazon.com: Book of Daniel: Books: E.L. Doctorow   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
It is a book rich in characters, from elderly grand- mothers of immigrant culture, to covert radicals of the McCarthy era, to hippie marchers on the Pen-tagon.
The title's allusion to the biblical Daniel is reflected throughout the text in a number of clever ways as the narrative leaps between historical reflections, allegories, and vivid evocations of moments and events in the life of Daniel, his sister, and their families.
The plot of the book is a finely woven quilt recalling the history of a mysterious leftist underbelly of America in the middle of the twentieth century, admirably portrayed by its personifications in Paul and Rochelle.

 Daniel
But Daniel refers especially to the third edict which was issued in the year 457 B.C. Seventy weeks make four hundred and ninety days.
But in the twenty-fifth verse of the ninth chapter of the Book of Daniel this is expressed in another manner, as seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; and apparently this differs from the first saying.
That is to say, the fulfillment of the vision of Daniel took place in the year A.D. 1844, and this is the year of the Bab's manifestation according to the actual text of the Book of Daniel.

 The Book of Daniel | PopMatters Television Review
This Son of God is primarily a buddy, underscoring Daniel's belief (or hope) that with faith in our lives, we are never alone.
Petitioning Christians to email NBC Chairman Bob Wright their displeasure, the AFA warned that Daniel mocks Christianity by presenting a "very unconventional" Jesus and populating the Webster clan with homosexuals (at least one a Republican), a drug dealer, a horny teen, and a martini-swilling wife.
Wise or not, Daniel sees it all around him: his daughter Grace (Alison Pill) is caught selling marijuana to make extra cash, his brother-in-law absconded with more than $3 million in church funds, his adopted son Adam (Ivan Shaw) is sleeping with the church warden's daughter.
