This study is entitled “Faith Under Pressure” because a primary purpose of the book of Daniel is to provide hope and encouragement for people who are struggling in the midst of a hostile culture. Though it may seem like two different books (one of history, one of prophecy), there is a unity of message here. The stories about Daniel and his companions show how to resist the attacks of a culture trying to strip you of your identity and make you over in its image.

The prophecies reveal that God has not forgotten them. He is still guiding things and working them out. He calls us to trust him and be faithful. The consistent message of the whole book is: In spite of present appearances, God is in control.
