God is in control, despite appearances. Daniel declares the sovereignty of God over the shifting political, social and moral scenes of life on earth. He protects, prospers, promotes and preserves His people. Daniel is a mixture of prophesy and narrative.
The first section contains some of the most inspiring stories in the Bible. It has been called the “Book of Revelation” of the Old Testament. Daniel documents the years surrounding the Babylonian captivity. He was a prophet during the years of Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, Darius, and Cyrus.
