John Knox and the Reformation in Scotland

Growing up in a small town in southeast Scotland, John Knox could never have imagined that he would play a significant role in a powerful movement that transformed his country. From tutor to bodyguard to slave on a French galley, he was involved in some of the most crucial events of Scottish history before he turned 35. After a brief time in England, where he served as a preacher and pastor and met his wife, he moved to Germany and Geneva, only to be called back to Scotland to inspire a powerful reformation. Find out more about this enthralling story as Lucas, Linus, and Emma talk to Dr. Ewen Cameron, the Sir William Fraser Professor of Scottish History and Palaeography at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.

Our friends at Reformation Heritage Books have provided two copies of Simonetta Carr’s book about John Knox for our listeners. Register here for the opportunity to win a copy.
