Books by JOHN KNOX KNOX, JOHN The Works of John Knox (6 volumes) Here is a chance to touch the flame that ignited whole nations for covenanted Reformation. John Knox is considered by many to have been the most biblically consistent and thoroughgoing of all the great Reformers of the sixteenth century. Concerning this 6 volume collection, Kyle, in The Mind of John Knox (p. 14) notes, "The only real basis for a study of Knox's thought must be the writings of the reformer himself. From 1846 to 1864, David Laing collected and edited nearly all of Knox's extant writings. This remarkable collection, which scholars regard highly, is indispensable for any serious study of John Knox."

"John Knox was in fact the embodiment of the Scottish Reformation as its preacher, theologian, liturgist, historian, and catalyst for reform." (Hall, ed. Paradigms in Polity: Classic Readings in Reformed and Presbyterian Church Government [Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1994], p. 219). "I know not," states George Smeaton, "if ever so much piety and genius were lodged in such a frail and weak body. Certain I am, that it will be difficult to find one in whom the gifts of the Holy Spirit shone so bright to the comfort of the church." (Cited in Thomas M'Crie, The Life of John Knox , p. 272.) David Chilton notes, "Of all the sixteenth-century Reformers, John Knox remains the most ardently loved and fiercely hated. No other leader of his day saw so clearly the political issues in the light of Scripture. Nor has any of his contemporaries had so much direct influence upon the subsequent history of the world. He transformed a land of barbarians into one of the most hardheadly Calvinistic cultures ever to exist, and his doctrines lie at the core of all Protestant revolutionary activity. While he is often considered merely one of Calvin's lieutenants, he was actually a Reformer in his own right. In some respects he was the greatest of them all." ("John Knox," The Journal of Christian Reconstruction: Symposium on Puritanism and Law [Vol. V, No. 2, Winter, 1978-79], p. 194). R.L. Greaves has noted that "it has even been suggested" and not altogether without merit "that Knox was a key link in the development of political ideology that culminated in the American Revolution." Theology and Revolution in the Scottish Reformation: Studies in the Thought of John Knox (Christian University Press, 1980, p. 156). Mitchell in The Scottish Reformation (p. 80) cites Dr. Merle D'Aubigne on Knox: "The blood of warriors ran in the veins of the man who was to become one of the most intrepid champions of Christ's army... He was active, bold, thoroughly upright and perfectly honest, diligent in his duties, and full of heartiness for his comrades." "I found Knox to be a riveting author. His zeal and knowledge were extraordinary. The reformer's epistles burned with the fervour of a man writing from the front line of a battlefield. Here was a man entirely committed to serving Christ" (Kevin Reed, John Knox the Forgotten Reformer: Studies in the Theology of the Scottish Reformer, p. 9, Library Of Presbyterian Heritage Publications CD). Additionally, Kevin Reed has perceptively pointed out, that because of Knox's concern for purity of worship "it is no wonder that the Scottish Reformation was the most thorough among any of the Protestant nations" (from the introduction to Knox's True and False Worship: A Vindication of the Doctrine that the Sacrifice of the Mass is Idolatry, p. 14). One individual while taking notes during Knox's preaching commented, "[h]e made me so to quake and tremble, that I could not hold my pen to write." Great sums of money were promised, by the enemies of the Gospel, to anyone who would kill him. And it has been said that Queen Mary feared Knox on his knees more than all the armies of Scotland. "Calvin described Knox as a 'brother... laboring energetically for the faith'" (Christian History). "[h]e was a Hebrew Jeremiah set down on Scottish soil -- in a relentless campaign of fiery oratory, he sought to destroy idolatry and purify national religion. In the end his cause triumphed... for his raw courage and tenacity, and for his legacy -- Scottish, American, and world-wide Presbyterianism -- we honor him" (Christian History magazine).Review:
