Publisher's Description

Meet a man forced to live in a fast changing and godless society. He faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement of world that seemed to be falling apart at warp speed. Sound familiar? His name was Daniel, and with the power of hope, humility, and wisdom, he not only thrived, he changed an empire while he was at it. Though he lived thousands of years ago, he has a much to teach us today.
 
Even in Babylon, God Is in Control
 
In Thriving in Babylon, Larry Osborne explores the "adult" story of Daniel to help us not only survive – but actually thrive in an increasingly godless culture. Here Pastor Osborne looks at:
 
-      Why panic and despair are never from God
-      What true optimism looks like
-      How humility disarms even our greatest of enemies
-      Why respect causes even those who will have nothing to do with God to listen
-      How wisdom can snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat
 
For those who know Jesus and understand the full implications of the cross, the resurrection, and the promises of Jesus, everything changes – not only in us, but also in our world.

    A Contemporary Perspective of the Person, Writing, Culture, and Spiritual Influence of the Man Daniel

    In his book Thriving in Babylon, bestselling author, Larry Osborne introduces a new perspective on the character, writing, and the incredible spiritual influence of the prophet Daniel in the midst of the godless culture and society of ancient Babylon, known for its wickedness, evil, and debauchery. He parallels this with a challenge for Christians today to become a positive influence for change in a culture and society comparable to a modern day Babylon.

    Although Osborne alludes to the well-known courage of Daniel, his deliverance from the lions den, and the important prophecies found in his writings, his emphasis is on Daniels hope, humility, and wisdom in carrying out Gods purpose for his life.

    Larry Osborne is senior pastor of the North Coast Church in Oceanside, California and a best-selling author. North Coast Church is among the top 10 most influential churches in America. His writing is clear, credible timely, articulate, and packed with personal application.

    Thriving in Babylon Why Hope, Humility, and Wisdom Matter in a Godless Culture contains a message for every Christian today seeking to make a positive impact on our culture by introducing the relevancy of the gospel message in the midst of the spiraling downward trend in Biblical core values in the world today.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I liked so much of this book, underlined so many thoughts and points of his, but right around the end of chapter 17 it started to worry me. I felt like my brother in Christ was making fun of people in the body who didn't agree with him. That was unpleasant. It was patronizing. It also seemed like he was suggesting that believers should be less involved in political or social change activities.

    goes too far in discouraging responsible Christian political action

    Loved 1st half but had problems with last half where Osborn criticizes politically active Christians. His cautions about not trusting in politics but trusting God are good but he sets up sterotype 'Rush Limbaugh types' as a strawman to rail against. I think we can encourage Christians towards greater political activity because in the USA we have responsibilities to use our citizenship to serve God. A believer who has been neglecting his Christian-citizen responsibilities could find much cover in how Osborn addresses this subject. He makes many excellent points about Daniel being a faithful man in a pagan nation that were great, but he does not address the vast difference in Daniels context and ours in the USA which are very significant. Daniel was a captive in a authoritarian pagan state. We are citizens of a democracy that was founded on Christian principles. He pretty much ignored those contextual differences.

    Also I have a problem with Osborns assumtions about Daniel. He writes that "Daniel never forced his righteous lifestyle on others" - it may or may not be reasonable to infer this but its incorrect to make such absolute statements when the Bible says no such thing. Thats a fundamental teaching error. And to the point he was making; was it a bad thing that freedom for blacks was forced upon the southern states in the civil war? Or that civil rights for blacks were forced through legislative action? Osborn goes too far in discouraging responsible Christian political action.

    At one point I was sure I was going to buy many copies for friends, but I'm not sure about that now, unless I wrote my own forward to caution them about the above. There is a lot of great stuff in this book and I love his writing style. Its a shame.
