“The Daniel Code: Living Out Truth in a Culture That Is Losing Its Way” uses the Biblical example of Daniel to address living faith as a “stranger in a strange land” and actively engaging with those around us.
Hawkins draws a somewhat startling, but not unwarranted parallel between the corruption of Daniel’s time and that of our own.
(There’s nothing new under the sun…)
I found some of his insights to be spot-on and his drawings from Scripture well done.
Hawkins has created an interesting guide to becoming a “culture warrior” in the modern age.
That said, the book did not create a completely compelling experience for me.
Oh, I found it insightful and enjoyable while I was reading, but it was not a book I simply felt I must continue reading.
However, Hawkins has a very distinct voice and clear mission throughout his book.
The chapters are broken down into manageable sections with catchy titles, each addressing a different topic related to the theme of being a culture warrior.
Those searching for a way to be honest to their faith while engaging with those around them definitely should give “The Daniel Code” a try.
It just might be what they are seeking.
