Daniel - one of the most misused books of the Bible - is read in this commentary as a powerful message concerning hope and responsibility for believers who, for various reasons, have to face the theological question, 'Who's in charge here?' The book of Daniel insists that the God of Israel is in charge, in spite of what circumstances may indicate; then finds ways, through story and vision, to reassure the faithful that there is a future for them after all.
The commentary shows that what might be taken as just 'Sunday school stories' - the lion's den and the fiery furnace - do raise issues from real life that have faced believers time and again across the centuries. It also helps readers to understand how to read Daniel's predictions of the future in a way that is most faithful to scripture as a whole.
