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.”
