World history is filled with the rise and fall of kingdoms, multi-national companies, ideologies and empires. There are wars and rumours of wars, earthquakes and famines. How can the church of the Living God stand firm in the middle of this turmoil? How can we hold onto the solid Rock in the chaotic sea of human history?
The great message of the Book of Daniel is that Jesus, the Son of Man, the King of the everlasting Kingdom, is on the throne of the universe - high above all the spiritual forces in the heavenly realms and high above all the earthly kings and kingdoms. The Son of Man has been given all authority and power from the Ancient of Days and is able to raise up or humble anybody He chooses.
Daniel shows us how to hold onto the reality of the LORD Jesus Christ in a world that we don't control, a world that is full of values and assumptions that are hostile to the ways of the Living God. He shows us how we keep our true identity as citizens of the everlasting Kingdom of Heaven when we are also citizens of earthly kingdoms that come and go. Daniel shows us how to work with integrity and excellence even when surrounded by colleagues who openly reject the Living God, colleagues who even plot to destroy us.
Stephen Nichols grew up in London in a Christian family. After studying history at university he taught English and history in a small college in south China. Returning to London, he worked among international students for six years at All Souls, Langham Place where Richard and Paul were colleagues. Steve says he learned during those years that we don't need to become experts in different religions before we can share the gospel with those of other faiths; Jesus himself is the revelation of God to all people and needs no introduction. After some further study at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, Steve and his wife, Katy, moved to Plymouth where Steve served as a curate. In 2014 he returned to London to serve at All Souls Church, Langham Place as Senior Minister responsible for the discipleship programme 'Springboard'.
