Product Description

The Conversations with Scripture series is the only Bible commentary written froma uniquely Anglican perspective. More than a source of children's stories or apocalyptic visions, the book of Daniel has much to offer, speaking an important word about faithful living to those struggling with political and cultural forces of domination and oppression. While written more than two-thousand years ago, Daniel still asks: Who controls our lives? To what or whom do we owe ultimate allegiance? To whom do the kingdom, the power, and the glory truly belong.

Conversation with Scripture: Daniel introduces a fresh way of reading Daniel. It teases out the Scripture's message-which is often hidden in dream symbols and rich visions intended for its original audience-while encouraging contemporary readers to listen for the voice of God speaking through Daniel in our own time and place. A chapter-by-chapter study guide with reflection questions is included. Like all volumes in the series, it is flexibly designed and appropriate for college and seminary classes, adult formation programs in parish group settings, and/or individual study and enrichment.

Conversations with Scripture is published in cooperation with the Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars.

Publisher's Description

Daniel was written during a time when God’s people were struggling to discern how to remain faithful, even as their lives were dominated by the political and cultural forces of the Empire. Daniel’s central themes have remained relevant ever since: the challenge of remaining loyal to God despite the alternately seductive and threatening voices of imperial powers; the indispensability of humility before God; the perpetual problem of human arrogance and failure to recognize the overarching power of God; the insatiable and life-denying human thirst for power and control; and the call to find in God the source of just, joyful and abundant living.
As people today try to make sense of a newly emerging global reality, Daniel continues to speak an important word about faithful living. Who truly controls our lives? To what or whom do we owe ultimate allegiance? To whom do the kingdom, the power and the glory belong? This book invites readers to consider the questions that Daniel raises and then live out the answers.
