The Book of Daniel should be read with the eyes of a child. It's a book of wonders and extremes-mad kings, baffling dreams with gifted interpreters, breathtaking deliverances, astounding prophecies-with even what may be the world's first detective stories added in for good measure. To argue over the book's historicity, as scholars have done for centuries, is to miss the point. In A Song in the Furnace, Fr. Lawrence Farley reveals all the wonders of this unique book to the receptive eye.
