The Bible is the most interesting of all books. It is adapted to every mind. In The Story of Daniel the Prophet, a few of the interesting facts in regard to God’s dealings with His people have been gathered into a simple narrative. We trust that while its simplicity will attract many who might not be inclined to read a deep, argumentative treatise, the most studious will find food for thought, and thus become better acquainted with the character of our Heavenly Father. Throughout the entire book the special providence of God over those who are faithful to Him is brought out in clear contrast to the fate of those who ignore His guiding hand. The truth is the same, whether in the history of nations or individuals.
This book is the result of much prayerful study. It is sent forth with an earnest prayer, that in the hands of the parents it may be the means of making the study of the Bible in the family a blessing to young and old; and that the teacher in the schoolroom may see precious rays of light flashing from its pages, pointing both teacher and pupil to the Great Divine Teacher.
