Book Review: Agents of Babylon

This book, Agents of Babylon, contains thirteen different chapters, an epilogue, an appendix, and a couple of other book sections. Each chapter is divided into roughly two sections.

Book Review: Thriving in Babylon

Nevertheless, we got there (to Daniel) and somehow started talking about… Continue reading The Book of Daniel in Perspective: The Overarching Points

Eating the Food of Kings

I'm doing some research on the Old Testament book of Daniel in preparation for a project I am about to undertake in the not too distant future. I'm taking it slowly. I'm still in chapter 1. Daniel 1 is an interesting place to begin a book. I mean, Daniel isn't typical prophecy. It has prophetic… Continue reading Eating the Food of Kings
