Daniel must rate as one of the most remarkable leaders in all of history. He ran two successive empires, and to him was entrusted enormous power. Despite this power, Daniel not only maintained his faith and devotion to God, but he also maintained his public witness to God. This book presents us with a cultural and worldview situation that is very close to our own. So often under the pressures of contemporary secular society, faith is privatized, but through Daniel we can learn to stand up and be counted in secular society.
