The Four Hundred Silent Years by Harry A Ironside and published by Classics.
History repeats itself in manifold ways and he who is wise will not despise its instruction.
It will be observed that the object of this book has been, not merely to give a chronological outline of events, or a series of biographical sketches, but to trace throughout lessons and warnings for any who today, as those in the days of Nehemiah, have sought to return to and obey the word of God, in separation from the infidelity and apostasy of the times. Such are exposed to similar dangers – though of a spiritual character – as those which confronted the Jews. 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.
