- Foreword by John F. Walvoord
The familiar story of Daniel and the lion's denthe fantastic tale of God's fidelity to his dedicated servantis only the starting point for this latest volume of the Men of Character series. Gene Getz digs deep into the story of Daniel, who, by the age of twenty, was second only to King Nebuchadnezzar in authority over the Babylonian empire. This book draws modern parallels with the remarkable true story of a young man torn away from his family, thrust into an alien land, and then revered as one of its great leaders. The story of Daniel's political and spiritual odyssey is one that still applies, even amidst our fast-paced society, and the words and deeds of this magnificent prophet can inspire the people of God.
"This exposition of the Book of Daniel, more so than any commentary which I have read, is distinguished by its practical application and the reduction of difficult doctrines to explanations that anyone can understand." Dr. John F. Walvoord
The Men of Character series highlights the lives of men in the Bible and demonstrates that we can still learn from their relationshipsboth with God and man. Each of these Bible characters faced trials, frustration and failure, yet they were inspired by God to achieve great goals. In a world where Christian role models seem increasingly rare, this series reminds us that some of the most worthy examples of godly character are still the biblical figures who brought power, wisdom and inspiration to God's people throughout the ages. Principles flow through their lives that will guide us through the maze of challenges we face in today's world and can help us to emerge victoriously.
