John Knox was born in Scotland and was educated and trained to be a Roman Catholic priest. But everything changed for him when he learns that his salvation doesn't depend on his good works, but on his trusting Jesus for redemption. With a fiercely loyal heart, he became a stalwart defender of the Reformed faith---refusing to give in to religion or royalty, as the Bible was his standard.
A spiritually insighful biography of Scotland's Reformer by one of its most respected historians. McCrie, a Scottish historian and divine, devoted himself to investigations into the history, constitution and policy of the churches of the Reformation. The first-fruits of his study were given to the public in November 1811 as the Life of John Knox, which contains illustrations of the history of the Reformation in Scotland. This work exercised an important influence on public opinion at the time and is credited by many as (along with other important works of the era) transforming Edinburgh and Scotland by making active, believing Christianity acceptable to the upper classes, and available to all.

This is the second volume in Sir Walter Scott's story of his beloved Scotland. It recounts the momentous events that took place during the Reformation. With the colorful figures of John Knox, George Buchanan, and Mary Queen of Scots on center stage, here Scott delineates the distinctions between Scottish history and that of all other nations. These stories proved to be the most intimate, most accessible, and most dramatic of all the tales Scott ever presented to his readers. From William Wallace and Robert the Bruce to John Knox and Mary Queen of Scots, from the subjugation of Rob Roy and the rising of the Jacobites to the crusade of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the quest of the Duke of Cumberland, these Tales from a Scottish Grandfather covered the entire romantic story of Scotland as a grandfather would tell it to his grandchildren, for Scott specifically addressed them to his ten year old grandson. Scott focuses all of his narrative power for the sake of love- love of family, love of place, and love of legacy. This history of Scotland is the richer for it.
