Book: A Song in the Furnace: The Message of the Book of DanielBook: A Song in the Furnace: The Message of the Book of DanielLike Daniel, we also live in Babylon, awaiting its apocalyptic fall, and like Daniel’s three holy and youthful friends, we also increasingly stand face to face with Nebuchadnezzar as he demands our cultural submission to an alien ideology. . . . This then is the urgent message of the Book of Daniel. As we stand before the powers of the age and hear the demand for cultural assimilation and surrender to secularism, we must make our own the words of the three young men to the king as the furnace of fury burned before them.

It is humble because Fr. Andrew has no interest in conveying his own ideas or philosophies—only the True Faith as passed down from Christ and His Apostles from generation to generation. It is profound because it is a clear and prayerful exposition of pristine Christianity.
