Daniel is a book of two halves. In the first half there are a number of 'Court Stories' showing us how Daniel and his friends were able to both work for the foreign king, but also stand firm in their faith.
The second half is classed as 'apocalyptic' literature. Grand complex visions explained by angelic beings. There is nothing quite like it in the rest of the Old Testament!
