The 400 Silent Years: From Malachi to Matthew
Four centuries separate the last prophet and the ministry of Jesus Christ, but that does not mean the intervening years were without significant events or important lessons. Quite the opposite. In The 400 Silent Years, Ironside does not simply trace the chronological events but provides fundamental lessons and warnings for the church today. In fact, he provides us a glimpse in the Preface why he wrote this book. There he writes, “From their history we may therefore obtain valuable suggestions, and by carefully considering the causes of their failures, be preserved from falling into the same snares.”
Here is a fascinating look at the 400 years between the time of Malachi and Matthew, perfect for any student of the Bible or church history or for anyone who wants a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the Intertestamental Period.
