Dreams & Desiring God’s Kingdom

Episode 44 | Daniel | Released September 28, 2020 | Special guest: Nancy Guthrie

For the first week of our Daniel series, Raechel and Amanda sit down with author, speaker, and Bible teacher, Nancy Guthrie. In this introductory episode, the hosts read about Daniel’s captivity in Babylon and explain different genres of biblical literature. They chat about kings and kingdoms, dreams and divine deliverance, and why Nebeduchnezzar reminds Raechel of Prince Huperdinck from The Princess Bride. Together the three women explore what it looks like to live a life consecrated to the one true God and why it’s worth investing every moment of our lives in seeking God’s Word and His kingdom that lasts forever.
