Format: Paperback
John Knox writes like an Old Testament prophet. He sees the hand of God guiding the nation of Scotland, alternately dispensing judgment and blessing. There is little doubt that Knox saw the Old Testament kings, particularly Josiah, as a model for civil society today (and there is little doubt Knox would have been fired from modern Reformed institutions). Far from holding to the modern Reformed "common grace" ethic, Knox viewed the Old Testament scriptures as a template for today ( Knox, 32).

Throughout the narrative Knox reveals many facets of an early, developing Reformed orthodoxy. Knox very clearly believed in the continuation of prophetic gifts. He notes that the proto-martyr Mr. George Wishart was "so clearly illuminated with the Spirit of Prophecy" that he was able to see what would happen to the realm afterwards (Knox, 52). Knox himself was said to have this gift, though Knox explains it as being so immersed in the Law of God and continually applying this knowledge to interpreting Providence (271 n.1). Perhaps this is what St Paul meant when he said seek earnestly the gift of prophecy.

In Knox we also see--not surprisingly--a budding anti-Roman apologetics. Knox's narrative is focused on the idolatry of the Mass. Knox examines the way Romanists view the Mass: 1) Is Christ being offered to the Father for the sins of the Church? or 2) Is Christ merely being offered as a remembrance to God? If (1), then does not this action replace the office of Christ, which performed the once offering up of himself to God? But if (2), then does this not imply that God forgets stuff? In either case, Knox notes that believers are simply commanded to take the Supper in both kinds in remembrance of Christ's death (242ff).

Format: Paperback
While this book is good for a cursoury glance at the writing of John Knox it is too long to fulfill this function. The text itself is only a fragment of the true history and eliminates many of the more interesting parts of Knox's history.
The original book is 5 (possibly 6) volumes, this edition only includes quick glances at each one and the last two volumes are introduced briefly. For anyone truly interested in seeing what the History of the Reformation is about this book is certainly not helpful.

Format: Paperback
the history of the reformation in scotland by john knox is a book that is written from a personal prespective. Knox writes from his point of view about the major events of the reformation in his native country, Scotland.enjoy this work as a work of Art where the artist reflects on his life and ministry from a personal point of view, not as you would consider it as a text book where accuracy and objectivity is the way to judge it.this book was not intented to talk about reformation in europe in general but rather the events of the protestant movement as knox viewed it in scotland.enjoy this great reformer of the 16 cent. and walk in his footsteps as he in this book descirbes the victory of the reformation in scotland.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a record from John Knox himself of the events leading up to the Reformation of Scotland in 1560, and a short period afterward. It is written from the perspective of the Reformer himself, so it shouldn't be taken as an objective historical record. The emphasis is particularly on the political situation of Mary, her French mercenaries, and the hangers-on of her court, interspersed with her fiery meetings with Knox. It ends, however, before her abdication and the crowning of her son as James VI (and later James I of England). This edition is a facsimile reproduction of an edition originally published in 1898. However, unlike many facsimiles, this one is clear, with no missing or smeared pages. While the language and spelling are much updated from the Scots of Knox, it still contains some archaic and dialect terms. Some, but not all, are explained in a glossary. I would suggest adding a separate biography of Knox, such as For Kirk and Covenant: The Stalwart Courage of John Knox (Leaders in Action Series).
