Editor’s Introduction

Another issue of YPS is with us. This is the last one for 2012. I wonder where the year has gone but, more to the point, I wonder if I have done anything of significance in God’s eyes during this year. I am sure that Daniel in the Bible did not expect to be cruelly uprooted from his homeland to spend most of his life living in a foreign country. As a result, we have the book of Daniel. Paul McCauley gives us a brief overview of the book and then teaches us some lessons from chapter two. Jim Armstrong challenges us about how much time we spend getting to know God. Steven Buckeridge gives us an overview of God’s will in our lives, and Stephen Grant has written another character study for us; this time it’s on Abel.

I hope that as you read this issue you will be challenged about the will of God for your life, how to know God more intimately, and made conscious of the fact that we could be called to suffer for our faith. Watch out for the February 2013 issue – there will be some styling changes, which we hope you will like.

Happy reading!

Stephen G. Baker
