Christians today face a dilemma: in a world that seems to reject everything we believe, how do we walk closely with God without caving to pressure or alienating those we hope to reach?
In The Daniel Dilemma, Chris Hodges provides a solution by examining the life of the prophet Daniel, who persevered in a corrupt culture that closely resembles our own--and emerged as an influential force in God's redemptive plan.
Full of timeless scripture and Hodges' candid personal insights, The Daniel Dilemma shows us that standing for truth isn't about winning the argument; it's about winning hearts. When we learn the secret of connecting before correcting, we discover that we can:
- Hold firmly to biblical beliefs without becoming obnoxious, insulting, or mad
- Stand strong while loving others well
- Respond to today's hard questions without compromising grace or truth
With fresh insights and practical ideas, Hodges encourages Christians struggling with our cultural reality to hold God's standards high and his grace deep--just as Jesus did, and just as his followers today are called to do.
