3.0 out of 5 stars genev July 29, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
John Knox is considered to be the greatest Reformer in the history of Scotland. Carlyle said of Knox, "He is the one Scotsman to whom the whole world owes a debt." In response to Knox's imprecatory prayers, Mary Queen of Scots is reputed to have said: "I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the assembled armies of Europe."

The author of this e-book entry states up-front in his preface that, "In this brief Life of Knox I have tried, as much as I may, to get behind Tradition, which has so deeply affected even modern histories of the Scottish Reformation, and even recent Biographies of the Reformer. The tradition is based, to a great extent, on Knox's own "History," which I am therefore obliged to criticize as carefully as I can. In his valuable John Knox, a Biography, Professor Hume Brown says that in the "History" "we have convincing proof alike of the writer's good faith, and of his perception of the conditions of historic truth." My reasons for dissenting from this favorable view will be found in the following pages. If I am right, if Knox, both as a politician and an historian, resembled Charles I. in "sailing as near the wind" as he could, the circumstance (as another of his biographer's remarks) "only makes him more human and interesting."

Since this entry is free, one may consider making their own evaluation of its worth. Since there is no active table of contents provided, it is suggested that on the initial reading of the text, the reader establish a table of contents with locations in a computer spread-sheet so as to facilitate later readings of this material.

Written centuries ago but still interesting in content, this is what was happening and often we forget what drove it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad translation undermines value of this book June 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Knox's History of the Reformation is important, but this version is in old English and is almost impossible to understand. Quite a chore. I deleted my copy from my Kindle.
