‘I come to any passage of Scripture expecting that God can teach me something, but the riches I uncovered here were beyond my expectation.’Reflections from the Lion’s Den’ is based on talks Michael Green gave on ‘Danieat Spring Harvest. He found the study of a man persistently loyal to God highly relevant to western culture today. He points out that:Daniel and his friends were all laymen. The future of the church depends on laymen. No longer can we lean on the clergy.They were thrust into a pagan society entirely alien to their background and beliefs, Christians today face an increasingly hostile culture. They were seriously determined to ‘let their light shine’. Christians are called to be lighthouses, offering both guidance and warning. This concise but substantial book is a joy to read. Michael Green’s sharp, cheerful style pulls no punches as he reminds us that ‘one plus God is always a majority’.
