John C. Lennox in his new book, “Against The Flow book coverAgainst The Flow” published by Monarch Books gives us The Inspiration of Daniel in an Age of Relativism.

From the back cover:  Daniel’s story is one of extraordinary faith in God lived out at the pinnacle of executive power. It tells of four young men, born in the tiny state of Judah around 500 b.c., and captured by Nebuchadnezzar, emperor of Babylon. Daniel describes how they eventually rose to senior positions of administration.

Daniel and his friends did not simply maintain their private devotion to God; they maintained a high-profile witness in a pluralistic society antagonistic to their faith. Their story carries a powerful message for us today. Society tolerates the practice of Christianity in private and in church services, but increasingly it deprecates public witness.

If Daniel and his compatriots were with us today they would be in the vanguard of public debate. What was it that gave that ancient foursome, Daniel and his three friends, the strength and conviction to be prepared, often at great risk, to swim against the flow?

Daniel and his three friends are taken captive from Jerusalem and hauled, in bondage, across the Middle East to Babylon. No more familiar daily activities or surroundings, no more family to support them. It was just them now. And these young men are gritty. Nicely, they defy the rules that are being imposed upon them by their captors and they succeed in their endeavors. Each one of these four men rises through the ranks to become involved in the high courts of government. All because they went “against the flow”. Mr. Lennox has given us a masterful detailed account of the book of Daniel presenting to us the portrait of a boy who grows to be a man of God in a pagan society and helps to shape that society. It is the intention of Mr. Lennox to show us, by the example of Daniel, that we too can make a mark in our society and not have to give in to its demands.  “Against The Flow” will help focus your attention to your true place in the kingdom of God and our respective roles. All of us need this book to help understand our identity and it would make a great gift for friends and family to help establish them as well.
