At a time when others cowered in complacent acquiescence, John Knox stood boldly and fearlessly in the face of the political and religious tyranny and corruption of medieval Scotland. Although Knox is probably best known for his frequent clashes with Mary, Queen of Scots, this concise examination of his life and character explores the important roles Knox played as the father of Scottish Presbyterianism and in the reformation of that entire region. A leader uniquely qualified for the task of reforming church and culture, he fulfilled the call of greatness with a spirit of genuine humility.
This new edition of the book formerly titled For Kirk and Covenant (from the Leaders in Action series) explores a side of Knox that history has neglected—his tenderness, love, and mercy—and calls us to recover the spiritual heritage he exemplified so well.
