9780852347591: John Knox (Bitesize Biographies)

As well as modelling the Church in Scotland, Knox laid the foundation of an extraordinary forward-looking new state, way ahead of the time in such matters as education, social welfare and democracy. The Reformation had its effect in all spheres of national life. Knox roused the common man to a sense of his true dignity. He said: Before God all men are equal. In matters of religion God requires no less of the subject, be he ever so poor, than of the prince and the rich man.'

Educationally the Reformation gave a great impetus to literacy as the common people learned to read the Bible for themselves. Knox brought forward the first comprehensive scheme of national education, where every parish would have a schoolmaster and every notable town a college, and where the children of the poor would have their education free. The importance of education became a basic characteristic of the Scots both at home and abroad.

Review:

This short biography is the "essential" John Knox with all his passion, power and devotion to Christ. It is Knox at his pithy best without the frills and distractions. This appetizer that will no doubt tantalize readers to further feast on the whole of the life and works of John Knox.' -- Dale Walden Johnson "Professor of Church History, Erskine Theological Seminary"

In these dark and depressing days for my beloved homeland, Scotland, it is so encouraging to be reminded that God often chooses such an unlikely backdrop to revive, reform, and renew His Church. May this short, pacy biography of John Knox keep us hoping and keep us praying, "Lord do it again."' -- Rev Dr David Murray "Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids"

'This short biography is the "essential" John Knox with all his passion, power and devotion to Christ. It is Knox at his pithy best without the frills and distractions. We are all indebted to John J. Murray for distilling the Scots Reformer into an intoxicating elixir. This appetizer that will no doubt tantalize readers to further feast on the whole of the life and works of John Knox.'--Dale Walden Johnson
