Daniel

Introduction

Daniel - known to children for the hero of the lion's den and the story of the three Hebrew children in the fiery furnace - is much more than a children's story book.  It is the key to understanding prophecy throughout the Bible.  In no other work does God make his purpose so clear.  Daniel must have been indeed a righteous man.  He is also an example of how God views our circumstances - for he was a captive in a strange land.
