Review: The 400 Silent Years

The 400 Silent YearsThe 400 Silent Years by H.A. Ironside
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an interesting read. Ironside gives a brief account of the history of the Jews for the four centuries between the end of the Old Testament and the birth of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. It was a period of unrest, fights for independence, unreliable associations, and the struggle for the purification of the nation. Ironside also gives a brief overview of the apocryphal literature of the period. It’s a book worth reading.
