Throughout the Old Testament, prophecy remained an important vehicle used by God to communicate with His people. Set during the Babylonian captivity, Daniel records one of the most difficult times in Israel’s history—her deportation and exile from the Promised Land. Yet during even the darkest times, God’s faithfulness was apparent. Dedicated to obeying God’s Law, Daniel became an advisor to the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar and a messenger of God. In this course, Strauss guides students through the historical and cultural backgrounds of the book while exploring possible interpretations of Daniel’s prophecies.

Confession: I had to stop listening about 7 minutes into Lesson #2. It became obvious that the instructor was going to continue to push the “dispensationalist” viewpoint of eschatology on the student. I could not endure the thought of listening to 11 more 40-minute lessons regarding that particular view of eschatology. (I was formerly a student of that same teaching). I do appreciate the ODBU courses, and I mean no disrespect to the instructor or to ODBU. I just want to be honest. Thank you.Jason, United States (US)
Great Course.Odetta, United States (US)
I have studied the Bible, including the book of Daniel for many, many years throughout my 74 years and, I believe, this is the best study I’ve heard. Thank you for offering it.Sidney, United States (US)
The course on Daniel was easy to understand and opened my eyes to a better understanding of the events that occurred during Daniel’s captivity. Sometimes I think we all make certain verses and chapters in Daniel more mysterious than they really are. The lecturer brought more clarity to what God was prophecying through Daniel. Thanks Wilma AllenWilma, United States (US)
I enjoyed the lectures and the study guide. The book of Daniel can be difficult to understand, but the lectures simplified the content and I could step back and see the whole picture and chronology of events. I have read Daniel a number of times previously, but this study simplified things for me. Thank you so much. Will continue my studies with these lectures in the next book I want to explore .

I decided not do the essay because I am not to good at writing. Whether I get a certificate or not its okay and has nothing to do with the program. I believe that you all are doing an excellent job. I basically reading the courses or listening to the videos. Thank you.Normand, United States (US)
I plan to keep going on. These courses are perfect for my schedule and life structure so I can do my studies and get what I need out of them.Thomas, United States (US)
I appreciate the encouragement received while studying Daniel to live out my life in such a manner, whatever the cost, so that ultimately men and women can be lead to a life in Christ Jesus.Pamela, United States (US)
An excellent course!Russell, United States (US)
A very interesting course with an excellent lecturer. He explained the book in a clear way that was easily understandable. Sad that he is no longer with us Would still like a word counter for final assessment questions please I also prefer targeted questions about the material learnt on the course rather than lifestyle questionsArthur, United States (US)
