"The most excellent man our country has produced" is how John Knox has been described. His clear vision for Scotland's need for reformation in the 16th century and his fiery outspoken criticism of error and corruption many times almost cost him his life. More than once Knox caused royalty to tremble and reduced it to tears, yet his courage, integrity and determination changed the course of Scottish history. As you trace the life and ministry of "the greatest of Scotsmen" you will appreciate the vital legacy that he left to this northern part of the kingdom. Like each of the books in this unique series, Travel with John Knox is both a carefully researched biography and a valuable travel guide. With over 150 colour photographs, drawings and maps, it will guide the traveller to many of the key locations associated with the life and ministry of John Knox. A detailed time line and recommended further reading adds to the value of the book.
About the Author
One interesting thing that struck me while reading it was that when Knox was in Geneva, the liturgy he used was a very simple one that included a question and discussion time. Maybe we need to re-think our ideas about what constitutes historic Presbyterian worship!
