A guide to the book of Daniel–‘The Derision of Heaven’


Although Daniel is a difficult book to understand, it is nevertheless an important book today as our society is seeing many of the themes from the book of Daniel replayed –Christian values and morals are being mocked; Christians are being discriminated against and hostility towards believers is growing by the day.  Michael Whitworth’s “The Derision of Heaven” tackles the questions of how we can be the “light of the world” in abject darkness and how God can still be in control.  Whitworth’s guide is an urgent message to the church today.

I read Whitworth’s book looking for some insight into the book of Daniel and received much more.  After reading “The Derision of Heaven”, you will not only have a better understanding of the book of Daniel, you will also better understand what is going on in the world today and how you should respond as a light in a dark world.

The talking points at the end of each chapter offer the author’s commentary on each section of Daniel which will guide you in seeing how Daniel relates to the world today.  It will also help facilitate discussion in a small group study.  It is inspiring and encouraging.
