Publisher's Description

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 today’s culture considers the inexcusable offense.  If we don’t speak up, people won’t 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 principles—a 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 Daniel’s victories is here for you today.

    THE DANIEL CODE

    Living Out Truth in a Culture That is Losing Its Way

    By O. S. Hawkins

    This book is a study of the book of Daniel; the author takes the first six chapters of Daniel and offers a comparison of Daniels time and our times. In the introduction he start in the 50s and comes through the next five decades showing how our country has changed, he calls it Culture Shock. Using the book of Daniel, what Daniel and his friends went through in Babylon, will offer a look into how we can use the information Daniel gives us and stay true to Godin our beliefs. The author talks about changes we have tolerated over the decades, our prideful culture and that we need to show our integrity at these times. We need to be effective culture warrior and stand up for what we believe to be right. By comparing, our culture to Daniels time should help us realize that we need to be strong and hold to our beliefs as Daniel and his friends did.

    The book is easy to read and understand, contains a lot of information and opens a new way to compare our culture to the culture of the Old Testament. A short study but one that will help todays culture.

    Hands down one of the BEST books I've ever read.

    And for someone who reviews at least a dozen books a year, that's saying a lot.

    O.S. Hawkins does an amazing job in bridging the gap between Daniel's time and this era. We truly do live in a modern day Babylonia. So much is taught and accepted that is contrary to the Word of God. And as Christians we often get caught up the idea that we must force the world to adhere to Christian beliefs. Yet we can be like Daniel.

    Daniel understood that he would accomplish more if he just lived his life in obedience to God's Word. He knew that the kingdom he lived in was not obedient to God' Word but he didn't have to be like them. And in his obedience God shone like a the city on a hill.

    I think that is the call to us today. We can't change the law. We can't force people to care about their neighbor beyond trying to make them adhere to Christian beliefs. But what we can do is love them. What we can do is LIVE out our lives in accordance with God's Word.

    Whatever you do not believe in, do not promote it, do not do it. And leave it at that. Sometimes our lives is the only bible some people have ever read. So we need to make sure they're getting an accurate representation of the Word.

    I sincerely recommend this book to EVERYONE. Does not matter where you are in your walk with Jesus. You should read this book as it will help live the Word of God in a world that is similar to Babylonia of Daniel's era.

    {FYI: I did receive this book through the BookLook Blogger program in exchange for my HONEST opinion.}
