Item description for For Kirk and Covenant: The Stalwart Courage of John Knox (Leaders in Action Series) by Douglas Wilson & George Grant...

John Knox has long been known for his bold, courageous stand against the political and religious tyranny and corruption of medieval Scotland. A churchman, patriot, and freedom fighter, he rose to power and influence in Reformation Scotland. Probably best know for his frequent run-ins with Mary, queen of Scots, Knox's most important role was as the father of Scottish Presbyterianism. In this remarkably fresh look at Knox, Douglas Wilson explodes some of the myths surrounding him and draws relevant modern applications from his leadership in action, including his tenderness, love, and courage.

Reviews - What do customers think about For Kirk and Covenant: The Stalwart Courage of John Knox (Leaders in Action Series)?

Good for facts on his character  Sep 19, 2006
For Kirk and Covenant is an easy book to pick up and get a feel for John Knox--particularly his character. But I have not found the result of reading it to be that I feel that I really know and love the man himself. The book's short chapters (topically arranged) are engaging but paint a choppy picture of his life. Author Douglas Wilson's aim to display his godly character and leadership requires him to continually protect Knox from his critics--the result being an almost perfect picture of him in every chapter. I'll use For Kirk and Covenant as a supplementary reference, but I look forward to reading a more comprehensive chronological biography.
Another 5 Star book from the Leadership Series...  Aug 8, 2001
A great reformer written from an honest perspective, well aware of our own culure... another great one for young and old alike!
Very engaging  Jul 29, 2001
I have read 3 or 4 biographies of Knox in the past ten years. Stanford Reid's *Trumpter of God* is considered the standard. But Wilson's is by far the most engaging.

I am not a Wilson fan at all. But this is a good read.

Wilson has not attempted a comprehensive biography. Instead he hits the milestones and highlights what made Knox one of the most interesting figures in Western history. WIlson seems to have relied primarily on 2 or 3 sources and has little to no familiarity with the bulk of the scholarly literature on Knox, but this matters little for the scope of this work.

Wilson makes contemporary, practical applications from Knox's that the reader will find very challenging.
