How can we remain faithful to our God in a world that rejects him? Is it even worth standing firm and obeying him when his kingdom often seems so very far away? How Can we live courageously and confidently in nations that do not live under God's rule? And is it possible to be a blessing to our nations, and show the power and goodness of our God, even in a time such as ours.
This is the context in which Daniel found himself, the book that bears his name is a book that will reassure, challenge and thrill us as we study it today.
