The fiery furnaces - gallowsbirds bark

Okay-verse 5 says that the king assembled a huge orchestra-and he ordered that whenever it played, everyone was to stop what they were doing and bow down and worship this statue. Now-if you’re like me, when I first read this story I wondered, “Where’s Daniel?” because he’s not mentioned in this incident at all. And to answer my own question, he was probably away on special assignment in some distant part of the empire. After all, remember-he has been given a lot of authority in the kingdom. In fact, knowing Daniel’s popularity, the king probably took advantage of his absence to issue this decree-so the storm that we’re about to read about broke on his three friends. They had to weather it without Daniel’s wise leadership. In any case, they refused to obey this edict from the king even without the presence and support of their friend Daniel. And some astrologers-who were no doubt jealous of the success of these four Hebrew youth-turned them in-reporting their disobedience to the king. When Nebuchadnezzar heard about their refusal to bow to his statue, he angrily summoned the three to his chambers and asked if the charges against them were true. Then, before allowing them to answer, he in essence gave them a second chance-probably because he knew they were Daniel’s friends and as we see later in this book Nebuchadnezzar genuinely liked Daniel.

The Puritans were unmatched in their ability to combine deep, theological thinking with warm, practical living. In recent decades, many of their writings have been brought back into print, but few Christians know who these men were or why their works are worth reading.

In Meet the Puritans , Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson go a long way toward alleviating this problem. This resource provides biographical introductions to every Puritan whose work has been republished in recent decades. Along with each biography is a guide to the written works of that Puritan author.

“ Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson have given us a priceless treasure in this introduction to the Puritans and Puritan literature. My prayer is that [this book] will help spark a new wave of interest in the Puritans, a new appreciation for theology, and especially a revival of their passion for careful biblical exposition. ”
—Dr. John MacArthur

“Meet the Puritans is a fascinating compendium, scholarly yet popular and accessible, that Puritan-lovers will value very hightly - and justly so. ”
—Dr. James I. Packer

“ As furnaces burn with ancient coal and not with the leaves that fall from today’s trees, so my heart is kindled with the fiery substance I find in the old Scripture-steeped sermons of Purian pastors. A warm thanks to the authors of Meet the Puritans for all the labor to make them known. ”
—Dr. John Piper

Finishing processes. A final step in processing steel is shaping. Liquid steel can be cast into ingots or various other forms. They can then be sent to rolling mills. There are hot rolling mills and cold rolling mills. Various kinds of steel slabs are rolled into sheets, strips, bars, or other kinds of products. Sometimes the steel is forged into shape with hammers or presses, or the hot steel is extruded through dies to give it some desired shape. For example, steel wire is made by drawing hot steel rods through smaller and smaller dies. Some steel is finished by grinding or polishing, and some is coated with zinc or electroplated with tin.
