And He Shall Reign: A Study in the Book of Daniel (Volume 1)

And He Shall Reign: A Study in the Book of Daniel (Volume 1)

With stories of men who endured in the face of persecution, terrifying dreams, and mysterious visions, the book of Daniel has intrigued readers for generations. But at the heart of this book, we don’t meet a mere man, however brave, faithful, or wise. We meet God, the King of Kings, who rules over every earthly kingdom and who is committed to preserving His people through trouble and persecution.

In volume one of this series, Alistair Begg reminds us that God is a faithful deliverer. The historical events and fantastic visions contained in the first six chapters of Daniel were not written only to inspire and intrigue, but to comfort God’s suffering people in exile. Just as God equipped Daniel to encourage the exiles, these studies assure us that the God who brings His people into difficulty will certainly bring them through it. God reigns over the affairs of men and of nations, and He will reign forever.
