Taken captive as a youth, Daniel is used by God as “the prophet in the palace” during Judah’s exile in Babylon. Confronting pagan kings with Gods worldwide rule, Daniel tells of dreams that unfold the worlds history from Daniels day to the distant future. But Daniel is more than a man of the future. He is a man of faith, taking a courageous stand for God, even when it means being thrown to the lions. He also was thrown in a furnace to be burned alive and upon being saved by God he turned a nation of unbelievers into believers of God. The faith and courage of Daniel is one of the most inspiring and uplifting boooks of the bible. God protects the faithful always.
