I've only just seen your post, Samantha.
I have been studying Daniel for several years - and have a web-site which goes through it chapter by chapter.
In a nutshell THE main theme of Daniel is to show how the worst that can happen (like the Jews being dragged as slaves to pagan Babylon) can be turned into a personal victory by those who stand for the right through any adversity.
Daniel and his three companions did just that - from the first chapter when they were tested on their faith by being offered unclean meats - through the fiery furnace and the lion's den.
I shall be happy to enlarge on this. Please e-mail me -

the jews though that yahweh is for the jews alone.
