Thriving in Babylon 

by Larry Osborne    
Religious
David C. Cook  
Meet a man forced to live in fast changing and godless society. He faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement about a world that seemed to be falling apart at warp speed. Yet he also lived with great faith and hope—and he changed an entire empire while he was at it. InThriving in Babylon, Larry Osborneexplores the story of the biblical character of Daniel to help us live godly lives in an increasingly godless culture.
How do we respond when our culture grows increasingly godless? In Thriving in Babylon, Larry Osborne explores the stories of Daniel, Jesus, and others in Scripture to help us distinguish between appropriate fear and unnecessary fear. He shows how our relationship with God gives us the foundation for deep security and hope, even in a world that seems to be going downhill.
It’s enough to make you lose sleep: the economy, health concerns, global politics, and spiritual  disintegration. But God offers a security and power that surpasses any of the dangers and challenges  we’ll an increasingly godless society. Thriving in Babylon will give you renewed hope that it’s possible to live a godly, confident life even when the world seems to be falling apart.

My review: Although we live in a culture that seems to have gone totally off track…Larry shows his readers how Daniel being a man of hope, humility, and wisdom was able to live a Godly life.

He (Daniel) found a way, in a culture far more wicked than anything we face, to glorify and serve God with such integrity and power that kings, peasants, and an entire nation turned to acknowledge the splendor of the living God. –Larry Osborne, Thriving In Babylon, page 27.

The time we live in, the circumstances we are placed in are not by chance or accident, rather they are part of God’s master plan so that we may share in His holiness.

This book is for everyone, Larry is a gifted writer who guides his reader through Daniel’s life to give them hope for the times we live in. I found his book to be very encouraging and it gave me optimism for what God can do. I was so inspired by Larry’s words that I zipped through his book in a matter of days.

Please don’t be fooled by the cover…thinking it might be a difficult read, it is not. I was really encouraged and learned a lot from this book.

Great read, would recommend it to anyone. I give it five stars.
