Ultimately, however, each challenge only strengthens their trust in God.

The (Reimagined) Book of Daniel is delightfully entertaining with its addition of the ditsy Daria, the Queen. While clearly and passionately presenting Daniel’s faithfulness to his God, I especially enjoyed Rachelle’s insight that allowed the Bible characters to be real, very human and vulnerable, yet victorious, in the time of testing.”
