The biblical account of the prophet Daniel is a story of extraordinary faith. At the peak of Babylon's power, Daniel and his friends maintained a high-profile witness in a pluralistic society antagonistic to their faith. This book examines what Christians today can learn from Daniel's example. - Koorong Daniel's story is one of extraordinary faith in God lived out at the pinnacle of executive power. It tells of four young men, born in the tiny state of Judah around 500 BC, but captured by Nebuchadnezzar, emperor of Babylon. Daniel describes how they eventually rose to senior positions of administration. Daniel and his friends did not simply maintain their private devotion to God; they maintained a high-profile witness in a pluralistic society antagonistic to their faith. Their story matters: It carries a powerful message for us today. Society tolerates the practice of Christianity in private and in church services, but increasingly it deprecates public witness. If Daniel and his compatriots were with us today they would be in the vanguard of public debate. This is a lucid and erudite examination of the life of Daniel - what it was that gave them the strength and conviction to be prepared, often at great risk, to swim against the flow? - Publisher
