The Plain Mr. Knox - Biography (Paperback)Elizabeth Whitley (author)
- We can order this
John Knox, more than any other man, laid the foundations of democracy, revitalised Church and Government, and brought the benefits of education to the ordinary people of Scotland.
One of the most celebrated people of his era, Thomas Carlyle, said that Knox was ?The one Scotchman to whom of all others his country and the world owe a debt.' If you understand Knox - then you understand Scotland.
Over 200 years after his death, when news reached Britain of the American Declaration of Independence, the Prime Minister of the day declared that ?America has run off with a Scottish Parson'. Knox's influence had spread far outside of Scotland during his life, but even more so after his death.
Read about this most famous of Scots in a lively, flowing biography that tells you what motivated a great man of history to form a nation.
