John Knox, one of the Scotch Reformers, was born in 1514 and was likely born in a place called Haddington. In the days following John Knox’s childhood the Reformation was in full action all around him. From Luther’s 95 Theses to Tyndale’s New Testament, John Knox was influenced greatly by the other reformers. In 1543, John Knox was joined to the Protestant Reformation.

Well known for his disputes with Mary, Queen of Scots, he authored several books, including The Monstrous Regiment Of Women. John Knox was a learned man and a true and great reformer. From a slave at the galley oar to a preacher at the protestant pulpit, the stalwart courage of Knox and those around him are displayed in this book.
