Publisher's Summary

Jesus taught that we should beware when all men speak well of us. Few have ever spoken well of John Knox, either in his own lifetime or in the centuries since. Was he excessively harsh and fanatical as his critics have painted him? Or was he appropriately hard and firm as his time and calling required?

In John Knox: Stalwart Courage, Douglas Wilson staunchly defends this staunch reformer, not only lauding his stalwart courage, but also upholding his much-neglected gentler virtues - love, mercy, tenderness, and humility. At Knox’s funeral, one of his friends said, “Here lies one who neither flattered nor feared any flesh.” John Knox sought the approval of neither commoner nor queen, but only his God. John Knox was a reformer of church and culture worthy of honor and emulation, and his story should be one we know well.

What a man of God

Douglas Wilson has written a most timely book on John Knox, one hero of the Reformation who occasionally gets overlooked. Douglas carefully paints Douglas as completely as possible, showing all sides of his personality. It’s truly a remarkable work. And that speaks immeasurably to the hearts of believers. Perfection. And includes the best narration by David Webb.

Less about Knox and more about Author's Politics

Not enough biography. Where did he grow up, how did he become who he was, what is presbyterian, how did he lead. None of these questions were answered in detail. Author is sure to put his opinions of his interpretation of the constitution into this book along with apologizing for hatred in the name of God. Author thinks the only right thought is regarding protestants - not Catholics, Hindus, Muslim or any other religion. The delivery of the audio is good though.
