Publisher's Summary

What does it look like to live with joy in a society that does not like what Christians believe, say, or do? It's tempting to grow angry, keep our heads down, retreat or just give up altogether. But this isn't the first time that God's people have had to learn how to live in a pagan world that opposes God's rule. 

In this realistic yet positive book, renowned Bible teacher Alistair Begg examines the first seven chapters of Daniel to show us how to live bravely, confidently, and obediently in an increasingly secular society.

Listeners will see that God is powerful, and God is sovereign, and even in the face of circumstances that appear to be prevailing against his people, we may trust him entirely. We can be as brave as Daniel if we have faith in Daniel's God!

The message of Daniel is incredibly relevant for us in our generation. Not because it maps out a strategy for how to deal with our new lack of status or because Daniel was a great man and we need to follow his example. The reason is that it will help us to believe in Daniel's God.

Alistair Begg, author

Rich and timely

Alistair's paraphrasing and discussion of the themes of Daniel remind clearly that, 'This world is not our home, we're just passing through.' A timely remembrance to be bold and courageous in our culture, by faith in the name of the Mighty Lord Jesus Christ; who has won, and will bring to completion all his purposes.

So encouraging!

Times are hard for Christians and instead of patting us on the head and saying it'll be alright, Alistair acknowledges it and reminds us that God is bigger!

Perfect for these times!

Alistair brings into focus one of Scriptures’ most recognizable characters. The history of Daniel speaks volumes in our 21st century, Western culture. This book is both challenging and insightful.

Brave by Faith

In his usual and faithful fashion, Alistair Begg exposits the Scripture as it unfolds in the Book of Daniel. Begg’s treatment of the story is one that will inspire your faith, encourage your heart as you are reminded that we are not home, this isn’t it, and Christ reigns.

Excellent Book

Begg does a great job of explaining not only what happened in the first few chapters of Daniel, but how it applies to our lives. There's a lot of great stuff in here that the modern Christian needs to understand!

Extremely relevant for today.

A great listen, inspiring and inspired. It appears that the world is turning further away from God's way, this book is helpful in understanding what is happening to today's culture and society. Powerful nations and people appear to be in control, this book helped me understand the place we have in God's plan. I always prefer a book read by the author and this is no exception, a clear and captivating narration. Alistair Begg has great international insight and doesn't shy away from the truth, it has altered my perception and outlook of so many aspects of life. Drawing on the book of Daniel and applying it to today's culture and society was a revelation that is now so apparent to me. Read, digest, reflect, react.
