Book Review: The Daniel Code, by O. S. Hawkins

The Daniel Code
ThomasNelson



                Reverend Hawkins sheds light into the first six chapters of the book of Daniel, giving new light to an old story.  In this work, he gave me new insight into the importance of passing family stories down to younger generations.
He also reignites the importance of trust when we find ourselves in tough situations. The four friends found themselves in an entirely foreign land with different religions, different customs, different literature, and different foods.

                Reverend Hawkins made the stories in the book of Daniel come alive to me. Trusting in God for all things has become easier because of how he highlights the response of Daniels three friends to Nebuchadnezzar as he tells them of their fate he thought awaited the trio.
 
                The author makes comparisons of the Babylonian indoctrination of Daniel and his three friends to the changes brought about in our American society since the early 1930’s, a sobering thought as I presently re-read this book as a part of my devotional reading.

                I recommend this book to those serious about growing in their faith.

                The Daniel Code is part of a series. Other titles are The James Code, The Jesus Code, and The Joshua Code. Reverend Hawkins donates all his royalties . . . from these books to the Mission: Dignity, a ministry dedicated to assist retired missionaries living near poverty level to live with dignity and security.”


                I received this book free from Thomas Nelson, a registered trademark of Harper Collins Christian Publishing, Inc. through its booklook review program. All they ask from me is an honest review.

  1. Hi Cecelia! I always ike to read about the background of Scripture, it really does make it come more alive. And it also helps me apply it to my life. This author is just on fire in this series, how lovely that he shares all his insights with us.
    The fact that he donates his proceeds just makes him that much more credible.
    Blessings,
    Ceil
