Abstract:

Rarely in the whole span of history has there been a man as controversial as John Knox. He has been pictured as a monstrous Bluebeard, marrying young girls; as a gloomy prophet, thundering sermons at poor Mary Queen of Scots cowering in her pew (in black velvet and pearls); or as a malicious ascetic, writing an insulting book about women. Inspired by the principles for which John Knox stood, Elizabeth Whitley destroys these conceptions with bold strokes of her pen. She makes clear that the battles Knox fought against unjust privilege, power-mongering, treachery, and greed were far-reaching in their magnitude, and that the motivating principles in his life have equal value to us today. His own words from speeches, sermons, letters, and arguments with the Queen reveal the true nature of the dour, small-statured Scot who made a people's church and then tried to mold a church-minded people. -- from book flap.
