The book of Daniel is a very interesting and surprisingly applicable book. Written during the Babylonian and early Persian empires, this book follows the life of a Jewish man named Daniel and his three friends living in exile. These men show us how to live moral, faithful lives even when society pressures us to conform. We also read many prophecies in this book, some of which have already been fulfilled. We see that God is sovereign, always in control over every circumstance. Because of this, we can trust Him even in the most difficult circumstances.
