Book of Daniel Half Review

I only caught the first half of The Book of Daniel premier, but there was a few good parts. At one point Daniel is whining to Jesus that life isn't easy and Jesus says that he never promised such and then they toss titles of self-help books back and forth such as "Jesus' Guide to a Comfortable Life" and "My Tuesdays with Jesus." What a great way to mock Moralistic Therapeutic Deism and Osteenesque positivity.

Another good part was when Daniel was repenting for asking God to damn his brother-in-law for stealing (which he did before he found out that his brother-in-law was actually dead). Jesus tells him, "Don't worry, you're not that powerful." The power of the keys notwithstanding, it was nice to hear something other than the typical Christian Hubris.

How 'bout y'all? What did you think?
