Product Description

Publisher's Description

"Knox's life teaches that the most timid saint becomes a formidable giant when strengthened by the almighty power of God in Christ alone." - Douglas Bond

John Knox, the great Reformer of Scotland, is often remembered as something akin to a biblical prophet born out of time—strong and brash, thundering in righteous might. In truth, he was “low in stature, and of a weakly constitution,” a small man who was often sickly and afflicted with doubts and fears. In The Mighty Weakness of John Knox, a new Long Line Profile from Reformation Trust Publishing, author Douglas Bond shows that Knox did indeed accomplish herculean tasks, but not because he was strong and resolute in himself. Rather, he was greatly used because he was submissive to God; therefore, God strengthened him. That strength was displayed as Knox endured persecution and exile, faced down the wrath of mighty monarchs, and prayed, preached, and wrote with no fear of man, but only a desire to manifest the glory of God and to please Him.

For those who see themselves as too weak, too small, too timid, or simply too ordinary for service in God’s kingdom, Knox’s life offers a powerful message of hope—the biblical truth that God often delights to work most powerfully through people who are most weak in themselves but most strong in Him.

Endorsement

Just finished this short but powerful read on John Knox. I have just started to dive into the world of reformed theology and the reformation in general. I'm so intrigued by this man's life and His passion to preach the word of God without apology. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to get a better understanding of the passion that drove Knox to say and do the things he did. It's a must read.
