Decadence and Downfall
We’ve been spending a good deal of time in the OT book of Daniel over recent months for our Sunday morning sermons, as we’ve considered how we’re to remain faithful to Jesus whilst living in a culture that is unsympathetic and at times outright hostile to the gospel.
Thanks to Doug for drawing my attention to the recent BBC documentary, Decadence and Downfall: The Shah of Iran’s Ultimate Party, (which can be found online for a limited time here), which outlines events in Iran during 1971 and shows how the then Shah saw himself as a modern-day equivalent of King Cyrus, ruler of the Medes and Persians 2500 year ago.
