Daniel

On Sunday we're going to be looking at the life of Daniel. 

For a good introduction to Daniel you might want to listen to Tabitha Foley's Ten10 preach from last Sunday, but can I also encourage you to have a go at reading the book of Daniel for yourself this week. 

The book splits into two halves. 

The first six chapters tell six different stories:
  1. Daniel and his friends are tested
  2. Nebuchadnezzar's dream
  3. The fiery furnace
  4. Nebuchadnezzar goes insane and then recovers
  5. The writing on the wall
  6. Daniel in the lion's den
Chapters 7 to 12 contains a series of visions which Daniel has and which relate to the future.

The book as a whole is dealing with the question of how do we relate to God and stay set apart for Him in a culture which is hostile to what we believe - sounds a lot like the world we live in.

Happy reading!

Simon.
