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.
