Daniel is a book about how to live for God in a subversive but hopeful manner when you find yourself in a context in which your fellow citizens and rulers do not share the same values. It's a story about resistance. It's a story of courage. It's a story about knowing who you are when everyone else wants to tell you who to be. It's a story about keeping your hope in God's power. Does Daniel want to be a son of Babylon? Or a son of Jerusalem? In that way, it's also a story about us. Do we want to be sons and daughters of the Nation? Or do we desire to be sons and daughters of the New Jerusalem?
