The book of Daniel is written about a time "when God's people live under ungodly world dominion. The book promotes hope by teaching that at all times 'the Most High God is ruler over the kingdoms of men' (5:21)" (HCSB Study Bible). Daniel is an example of faithfulness and holiness in a culture similar to ours; of pluralism, individualism, and relativism. He and his friends stand strong in their faith in Yahweh in spite of the risks and consequences. Daniel also gives us a view of the future that assures us God will ultimately prove his power and reign victorious. Click here to download a Salt group study guide.
