A Study in Daniel

Course Description:

Process/Purpose

  • To study the book of Daniel with an eye for preparing students to successfully walk with God through a life in which non believers and godless patterns of behavior often times heavily influence the cultures in which we live.

  • To better understand God’s vision of greatness: helpful love and service – not selfish ambition.

  • To understand that it is possible to be both godly and successful in this life.

  • To notice that Daniel was more successful than his peers precisely because of his relationship with God.

  • To notice Daniel’s trust in God’s word as a reliable source of knowledge that is pertinent to real life: to recognize that faith and science don’t exclude one another, but that God’s word is the first and most reliable authority.

  • Also to understand that through our relationship with God and through humility, anyone can live out greatness in God’s Kingdom, that nobody is disqualified.

  • To understand God’s love for mankind as those created in His image, and to understand His heart to be reconciled to mankind.

  • To notice that through seasons of brokenness, God restores people to the greatness for which He created us all.
