Abstract:

"Authoritative and well researched, Trumpeter of God portrays every aspect of Knox's life. Although Knox may be best known for his bitter controversies with Mary Queen of Scots and as the founder of what has become the Presbyterian church, yet his extraordinary career encompassed far more : years of exile and years at the summit of political power, and nineteen painful months in captivity as a galley slave on a French ship. This book shows those elements basic to Knox's dynamism and recounts the key events in his crowded life. Along with Knox's dramatic and significant work in Scotland, Reid also amply covers the solid contributions he made in shaping the Reformation faith both in England and Europe."--Page 4 of cover.
