The wind has changed.
We live in a culture where people are increasingly embracing secular views. In fact, in recent years, secular beliefs have pushed to the forefront, and Christian views are becoming less acceptable and less expressible.
So how do we live as Christians in this new normal—in a society that doesn’t like or understand what we believe, what we say, or how we live? And where is God in all of this?
Alistair Begg addresses these questions in his timely and thought-provoking new book, Brave by Faith: God-Sized Confidence in a Post-Christian World. Walking us through the book of Daniel, Alistair explains,
The message of Daniel is incredibly relevant for us in our generation. Not because it maps out a strategy for how to deal with our new lack of status—or to reverse it. Not because Daniel was a great man and we need to follow his example, buck up, and be more like him. Yes, it’s a good idea to seek to emulate the men and women of faith we find in the pages of the Bible. But no, this book will not tell you to be like Daniel so much as to believe in Daniel’s God.
God is the hero in Daniel’s story—and in ours as well. Chapter by chapter, Brave by Faith will turn your focus from the daunting circumstance at hand to the sovereign hand of the Lord. You’ll discover how, in Daniel’s day, God was in control in an empire that denied and defied Him. You’ll also learn how to live with courage and conviction as today’s culture heads in a similar direction.
You won’t want to put this book down! Alistair revisits the gripping tales of Daniel’s life from his exile into Babylon to his victorious night in the lions’ den. You’ll be inspired by Daniel’s unwavering faith and intrigued by his apocalyptic visions. But the overarching message of Brave by Faith is that Daniel’s God is our God. He is all-powerful and sovereign. Even when circumstances appear to prevail against His people, God reigns supreme and can be trusted.
Request Brave by Faith and learn how to live bravely and confidently, like Daniel did, proclaiming the Gospel even when others don’t understand or welcome its message.
