Seven studies in Daniel which will reassure, challenge and thrill Christians trying to live for God in a hostile word.
Part of the Good Book Guides series.
How can we remain faithful to our God in a world that rejects him?
Is it even worth standing firm, when his kingdom often seems so very far away?
And is it possible to be a blessing to our nations, and show the power and goodness of God, in our day?
Those are pressing questions for us in a time when living as a Christian increasingly means being misunderstood, maligned and even mistreated. And since this is the context in which Daniel found himself, the book that bears his name will reassure, challenge and thrill us as we read it today.
In these seven studies you will see Daniel and his friends seek to remain faithful in a foreign land; and then you will watch and listen in on a series of visions Daniel received, outlining how God would bring his people home, to live in his kingdom and under his king.
Let the book of Daniel show you what you can expect from this life, and how you can and must stay strong in a hostile world.

I write on behalf of the home group that I act as co-ordinator for to say we have recently followed studies on Ruth as well as Daniel. These have been new resources for our group and we have found them stimulating and encouraging. We have learned a great deal from both as they have encouraged us to look more closely at Old Testament history as part of our studies which has enriched our times together. We will definitely be using more of these in future.
This is such a good study guide! I have used it to prepare and lead my Bible study group and have found it excellent. Good questions and I love the ‘Explore more’ bits which one can look at or leave out depending on time.
helpful and efficient. loads of choice.quick service.
We studied this in our homegroup and found it perfect for our needs. Informative, giving information for different levels of discussion. The section each week getting us to disuss how we could bring what we had learnt into our present circumstances encouraged good discussions. The more in -depth answers to questions at the back of the study were helpful to those leading Overall I highly recommend this series. (studied Ruth and Jonah) Thank you
This is the first time I've studied Daniel in any depth, and, WOW!
It's given me (by Gods grace and wisdom) such clairty and insight into the message/s that God teaches us through Daniel. I love the approach this study guide takes through the book, how the questions really make you think, but also how it directly addresses the reader in the "make it personal" sections.
We used this book for our ladies' Bible study in the neighborhood - all of us in different stages of our lives. The content, the helpful guide, the relation to the OT and NT and then to our lives was awesome! We are now starting a new group and will continue with The Goodbook Guide.
Our neighborhood women's Bible study used this book and it was fascinating. Love all the in-depth guidelines and how this book relates to us today. Highly recommend!
Love this thoughtful approach to the Book of Daniel. David Helm constantly reminds the reader of our relationship to Christ and draws us to see the need to be in right relationship with Him. I do have one edit to suggest: David make a footnote reference to a quote on page 47 attributed to Karen Armstrong from her book "In the Beginning". David's footnote on page 52 reads "I do not endorse every conclusion that he reaches, but his work is worth engaging critically." Karen Armstrong is a woman, so these two pronouns should be updated in the next volume to she and her. Thanks. Great book otherwise. Wonderful for preparing studies in Daniel for a small group.
