John Knox: Man of Action
A deeply researched, comprehensive biography of John Knox which vividly brings its subject and the milieu of the Scottish Reformation to life. The author shatters the myth that Knox was a ranting, dogmatic misogynist. This man of action lived a dramatic life in the midst of one of the most volatile periods in Christian and Scottish history.
