This year marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of the great Scottish Reformer, John Knox. God not only calls men to particular tasks in his kingdom; he also equips the men he calls with the personality, gifts, and strength to do the work. So it was with John Knox, the Reformer of Scotland.
John Knox was born in 1514, in the small village of Gifford in East Lothian. He received his early training in Haddington and was then sent to the University of Glasgow. His upbringing and experiences tempered him to stand alone against queens and princes, unmoved by their threats or tears. He was, in God’s wisdom, the only one who could bring the Reformation to Scotland.
