“It was the book and particularly the character of Daniel that strengthen my faith in Christ when I worked as assistance manager in the entertainment industry for almost 2 years ago (Before I joined the full-time ministry). By God’s Word encouragements, I get to witness for Christ in my workplace (with my ups and downs of course). I hope that this book can encourage you to read and practice the Book of Daniel in your life.” (RA)
Christians today often feel without a voice: a minority in an indifferent world. Should we withdraw? Get stuck in, despite blurred boundaries? Like the Israelites in Babylon, for many of us this is a time of temptation and defeat.
Ajith Fernando’s Spiritual Living in a Secular World engaging book uses the experience of the young Israelite, Daniel. Daniel and his companions were the elite: young men of outstanding ability. God put them in a position where their names – their very identity – were changed to fit Babylonian culture. They learned pagan languages and became steeped in Babylonian society.
Yet they did not compromise. They avoided the opposite traps of isolation and accommodation, preferring instead the option of obedient involvement. By their radical obedience they proclaimed that the Kingdom of God is alive and well – and so can we.
THINK BIG. START SMALL. GO DEEP.
