Some say God was silent during the centuries between Malachi and the gospel of Matthew.
But if you examine writings referred to as the Deuterocanonical or Apocryphal books, like First and Second Maccabees, Judith, and the Wisdom of Solomon, you see that God was anything but silent. He was speaking to and working in the lives of His people to instruct them, keeping alive their hope for the promised coming Kingdom of God.
In this book, Father Michael Pacella and Dr. John Stanko examine these "forgotten" books to extract the wisdom they have and the historical accounts they provide that are relevant for the Church and modern Bible readers.
