How do we live "in the world" and yet not let the world own us and squeeze us into the shape of its own fallen values and assumptions?
Hearing the Message of Daniel seeks to address these difficult questions by looking at how the book of Daniel tackles the problem head on, both in the stories of Daniel and his friends, and in the visions he received. A major theme of Daniel is how people who worship the one, true, living God can live and work and survice in the midst of a nation, a culture, and a government that are hostile and sometimes life-threatening.
Christopher J.H. Wright encourages believers to bear in mind that the future, no matter how terrifying it may eventually become, rests in the hands of the sovereign Lord God—and in that assurance to get on with the challenging task of living in God's world for the sake of God's mission.

Wright has turned out some terrific commentaries on Old Testament books in the past, and now provides us with a little jewel on the Book of Daniel. This time out he does not provide us a commentary, but a book of expository preaching. As he explains in his preface, he does not get into critical questions, but intends the book to be an encouragement to Gods people in the midst of hostile and threatening cultures, and to affirm Gods sovereign control of all that happens. In my estimation, he fulfills his intention.
His introduction is brief, but encourages us to view Daniel from so long ago in a proper way for our day. He scolds what he calls the end- times prediction industry with criticism that is warranted. I say that as a premillennialist who would differ with Mr. Wright on several points involving prophecy. Books on Daniel tend to be judged on the prophetic views of the author rather than what he or she actually says about Daniel. Its what Mr. Wright has to say about Daniel and his times that I find so compelling.
The historical background provided is superb. To my mind, he is at his best when the text is historical narrative. His theological observations are astute and helpful. Leaving out the issue of prophetic interpretation, this is what preaching should look like.
This book is one of those volumes that attempts to hit two targets at once pastors and devotional readers. Most books in this category cant quite pull off that feat, but Mr. Wright did with the best such effort that Ive seen in a while.
The book reads well and yet is never superficial. Im glad to have it on my shelves now and I predict you wont be disappointed.
