Buffalo received many feet of snow in their football stadium (I have heard numbers from 7 – 12 feet), and the venue had to be shifted to Detroit.… More

I was surfing the TV channels when I came across a movie by this title. It was an engrossing high-drama movie, well-acted, and I felt like I was right there in the Middle East when all these things happened to Daniel. What came across strongly was the unmitigated faith that Daniel and his friends had in God. I went straight out and bought the movie, which was produced by an outfit called PureFlix.… More
