ABOUT THE BOOK
The book of Daniel in the Bible was written over 2,500 years ago. Yet it remains highly relevant for us today. Daniel was transported to a society where his future was uncertain and where he encountered hostility to the practice of his faith. His response gives us important pointers as to how, when life gets challenging for us, we can stay faithful to God and finish the course well.
Michael T. Gowen shows how chapters 4-6 are highly relevant to life today. He examines the issue of faithfulness through the lens of Daniels life in middle and old age. He was able to stay faithful to God and faithful to the kings he served right to the end of his life despite the many difficult moral choices, challenges and threats that he faced along the way.
For most of his working life Michael Gowen has been involved in church leadership. Including twenty-five years in Brussels, Belgium. Now retired, he is a member of the Birmingham Vineyard Church where he is still involved in training and mentoring leaders. He is married to Liz with three grown-up children and seven grandchildren.
