Thriving In Babylon by Larry Osborne – Book Review
If you are a Christian who is concerned about the changes that you see happening in our culture and what these things mean for your family and your future, then I’d like to recommend Thriving In Babylon – Why Hope Humility And Wisdom Matter In A Godless Culture by Larry Osborne to you.
In Thriving In Babylon, Larry helps us to put our concerns and fears in perspective by:
- Providing us with an in-depth look at what Daniel faced under the rule of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon during Old Testament times.
- Comparing our current culture against those from the past.
- Teaching us how to act wisely and treat others with humility and respect.
Most importantly, Larry reminds us that, no matter what happens, God is always in control.
Thriving In Babylon is an informative and easy-to-read book that provides a lot of insight into the life of Daniel and the challenges he faced – the sovereignty of God – and some of the traps that well-meaning Christians fall into as they try to change the world around them.
The one thing that would improve the book in future editions would be the inclusion of a Discussion Guide as this would be an interesting book to read and discuss as a group.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Thriving In Babylon and learned a lot about Daniel’s culture and ours by reading this book.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
