Life of John Knox
A bold leader of the Scottish Reformation who saw fellow defenders tortured and executed
Enduring illness and brutality during 19 months of imprisonment aboard a French ship
Exile in England, domestic life, pastorates, and a triumphant return to power in Scotland
Forced to flee his enemies on many occasions, John Knox (c. 1505-1572) had a life of exciting adventure, harsh imprisonment, and brilliant scholarship. Fighting battles both political and religious, Knox bravely defied royalty, nobility, and the established power of the Papacy to speak the truth. A fiery and inspirational preacher, he fiercely upheld the authority of Scripture and salvation through Christ's sacrifice. In perilous times, Knox risked his life daily in a fearless and tireless defense of the faith!
