Learn from the book of Daniel how to live confidently for Christ today.
What does it look like to live with joy in a society that does not like what Christians believe, say or do? It’s tempting to grow angry, keep our heads down, retreat or just give up altogether.
But this isn’t the first time that God’s people have had to learn how to live in a pagan world that opposes God’s rule. In this realistic yet positive book, renowned Bible teacher Alistair Begg examines the first seven chapters of Daniel to show us how to live bravely, confidently and obediently in an increasingly secular society.
Readers will see that God is powerful and God is sovereign, and even in the face of circumstances that appear to be prevailing against his people, we may trust him entirely.
We can be as brave as Daniel if we have faith in Daniel’s God!
Here is an ideal combination: one of today’s stand-out gospel communicators reflecting on the life, wisdom, and sheer guts of Daniel, one of yesterday’s outstanding heroes of the faith. With clarity and grace, courage is laid bare as one of our great needs today. 'Brave by Faith' is certain to challenge and encourage Christians of every age and at every stage in life. A book for our times!”
If anything seems to be missing or elusive in the lives of Christians today, it is the presence of courage. One of the virtues of courage is that it holds on to hope. Alistair Begg helps us all by taking us back to the notable Old Testament model for both hope and courage—the prophet Daniel. You will be refreshed and strengthened by a fresh look at the young prophet and his friends as they face life-threatening hostility in a pagan world.
