About Daniel Generation
As godly leaders today, we live in a world that has changed dramatically over the past 20 years. Daily we are faced with challenges regarding what it looks like to serve God and lead faithfully in our complex world.
Technology, globalization, and moral relativism continue to transform the way we communicate, relate to one another, and define what is right and wrong. It is in this changing cultural landscape that young leaders must grapple with what it means to be loving, tolerant, and faithful to God. Experienced leaders, teachers, and parents are faced with the reality that they have never navigated some of the challenges that their mentees, students, and children encounter today.
So, how do we navigate these changing times? Author Jolene Cassellius Erlacher takes us back to another tumultuous period of history. She unpacks valuable practices from the lives of Daniel and his friends, godly young leaders who faced incredible challenges, that can be applied to our lives today.
These practices include:
Understanding the Times
Knowing the Law of God
Learning the Language of Our Culture
Finding Godly Companions
Serving the Kings God Establishes
Practicing Godly Discipline
Living a Trustworthy Life
Godly leadership today is not for the faint of heart! Rather, it requires the courage and humility exemplified in Daniel’s life. Daniel’s faithfulness, however, amid dramatic change resulted in God’s glory being revealed and His purposes established. Today, God is calling for a new generation of Daniels, men and women who will sacrificially and boldly live for His purposes.
Will you be one of them?
