Like Daniel and the Israelite exiles in Babylon, we too are strangers and exiles in this world. We too are waiting for the coming of the Son of Man, who has received the kingdom from the Ancient of Days, to establish his kingdom on earth. Schwab demonstrates how believers living among unbelievers, and as citizens of countries with increasingly hostile governments, have opportunity to reveal God-inspired wisdom and discover hope as they look to Christ.

God reveals the future to affect the present. Prophecy glorifies the One in control, inspires believers’ confidence, intensifies hope for God’s will to be done, and moves people to repentance and holiness. This study of the book of Daniel highlights these essential aspects of prophecy. Given the mysterious symbolism throughout Daniel, not every reader will agree with Schwab’s interpretation of this or that detail. But his focus is clear: God’s absolute control and unrelenting resolve to accomplish his redemptive purpose in Christ should give God’s people in every age ‘hope in the midst of a hostile world.’
