How can we learn to be effective culture warriors?
We live in dangerous times. Not only does violence stalk us in the form of terrorism and crime, but our culture itself is crumbling. Our society tolerates and even praises what would once have been barely spoken of. If we stand up we are branded as intolerant, the term todays culture considers the inexcusable offense. If we dont speak up, people wont know biblical truth. How is a Christian to respond?
Inspired by the story of Daniel in the Old Testament, bestselling author O.S. Hawkins shows how we can engage our broken culture with integrity. Daniel was a young man who "wrote the book" on how to survive in a pagan, permissive, and perverse culture. His value system was challenged at every turn.
Daniel steps off the pages of scripture and into our modern culture today to reveal some timeless principlesa sort of "Daniel Code"that enable you to not simply exist in our culture but to engage it and survive it as well. You will discover that the same God that ensured Daniels victories is here for you today.
