The Book of Daniel is the place where prophecy and theology meet in a teenage boy named Daniel in captivity to a foreign king. Along with Daniel's friends, the reader comes face-to-face with the realities in his own life: -How a believer must live in times of apostasy; -How a believer may follow the Lord in the most secular of conditions; -How a follower of Christ can trust Christ even when it seems He is not in control; -How a disciple of Jesus can meet the demands of discipleship in the tough, hard places of life. In 'The Demands of Discipleship', Mike Milton leads the reader through a study of the book of Daniel as a divine guide to living for God in those times when it looks like God is nowhere to be found. Retaining the live feel of an actual worship service at First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga, Tennessee, where these messages were first delivered, the reader can expect an appealing mixture of faithful Bible exposition, alert concern for the times in which we live, and heartfelt pastoral application to the lives of real people. Each chapter concludes with questions for devotional study or for small groups. Michael A. Milton (PhD, Wales) is President and Professor of Practical Theology of Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina. An ordained Presbyterian (PCA) minister, Milton's pastoral record includes serving as Senior Minister of the historic First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga, TN, planting two churches (Kansas, Georgia) and founding a Christian school (Westminster Academy, Overland Park, KS). Dr. Milton resides with his wife and son in the Charlotte area.
