The book of Daniel is special in several respects.

One of the ways we will highlight in this course is the information on Daniels life. Most other Old Testament Prophets are simply known for their message, yet their lives are almost entirely obscured.

The Lord had different plans for Daniel, however. We have the first six chapters that tell us about his life from his youth to his old age.

It's as if God is saying: "Look at him! Be like him!"

Indeed, Daniel and his life is worth emulating. Therefore, we will devote this first course entirely on his life. We want to know the person, before we jump into his message in chapters 7-12.
