The book of Daniel chronicles the life of a young adult coming of age in a hostile environment. Even when opposition faced him, he was resolute in holding onto his convictions ~ such a pertinent example for us to follow in our culture.
But besides having some great stories that we’ve all come to learn and love (Lion’s den, burning furnace, Daniel fast), the second half of the book focuses almost entirely on apocalyptic prophecy. And therein lies the message that you would only catch by studying the entire book: understanding how it all ends, helps us remain steadfast in the midst of uncertainty.
