Although a prophet, I find Daniel not fitting in the mold of the other prophets. Daniel's narratives paint a picture of God's sovereignty in the midst of trial. I don't find an pre-exilic or exilic motif. Daniel is not proclaiming impending judgment as do other prophetic writers. The book seems set apart from the other prophets in a sense. I'm waiting for two books to come in that I ordered last week. Any insights from my PB brethren?
