The Book of Daniel


The Book of Daniel tells the story of the exiled Israeli prophet, Daniel, and his interactions with four kings. It’s extremely enjoyable, and very well done!

The Book of Daniel (2013) starring Robert Miano, Andrew Bongiorno


I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised with The Book of Daniel. It begins with the elderly exile, Daniel, who’s taken captive by a king. He then tells in flashback his interactions with four kings, as detailed in the Biblical book of Daniel. It does not deal with any of his prophetic dreams or visions. But it definitely does cover Nebuchadnezzar’s. It also includes the famous Biblical story of his three friends (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) and the fiery furnace.

It’s very well done, with excellent acting by the entire cast, great costuming, sets, etc.

The Book of Daniel 

Taken into slavery after the fall of Jerusalem in 605 B.C., Daniel (Robert Miano) is forced to serve the most powerful king in the world, King Nebuchadnezzar. Faced with imminent death, Daniel proves himself a trusted advisor and is placed among the king’s wise men. Threatened by death at every turn Daniel never ceases to serve the king until he is forced to choose between serving the king or honoring God. With his life at stake, Daniel has nothing but his faith to stand between him and the lions den.
