The book of Daniel is both familiar and unfamiliar to many Christians. While the stories of Daniel and his friends are well-known, the visions of the prophet are daunting to most. And yet there is rich truth to be gleaned from every chapter. Daniel makes it clear that God is in control of all human events that have unfolded or will occur in later times. At the same time he shows us how to live a godly life in an ungodly culture – like our own.
