Here is a chance to touch the flame that ignited whole nations for covenanted Reformation.John Knox is considered by many to have been the most biblically consistent and thoroughgoing of all the great Reformers of the sixteenth century.


"John Knox was in fact the embodiment of the Scottish Reformation as its preacher, theologian, liturgist, historian, and catalyst for reform." (Hall and Hall, ed. Paradigms in Polity: Classic Readings in Reformed and Presbyterian Church Government [Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1994], p. 219).


"With this concern for purity of worship," notes Kevin Reed regarding Knox, "it is no wonder that the Scottish Reformation was the most thorough among any of the Protestant nations." (From the introduction to John Knox, True and False Worship: A Vindication of the Doctrine that the Sacrifice of the Mass is Idolatry [Dallas, TX: Presbyterian Heritage Publications, 1550 reprinted 1994], p.14.).


"I know not," states George Smeaton, "if ever so much piety and genius were lodged in such a frail and weak body. Certain I am, that it will be difficult to find one in whom the gifts of the Holy Spirit shone so bright to the comfort of the church." (Cited in Thomas M'Crie, The Life of John Knox [1831], p. 272.)

The Works of John Knox listed here is the complete six volume set collected by David Laing, 1895.  


Concerning this 6 volume collection, Kyle, in The Mind of John Knox (p. 14) notes, "The only real basis for a study of Knox's thought must be the writings of the reformer himself. From 1846 to 1864, David Laing collected and edited nearly all of Knox's extant writings. This remarkable collection, which scholars regard highly, is indispensable for any serious study of John Knox."


Contains much that is related to worship questions and the blessings that God pours out upon Churches that keep the second commandment -- as well as the curses that follow those who reject the regulative principle of worhsip.


The Works of John Knox Volume 1 - Unedited History of the Reformation in Scotland (Books 1 & 2) and 18 appendices.   


W. Stanford Reid, in his Trumpeter of God, notes that Knox " wrote history as a prophet" and that, wherever he could, he used original sources, many of which he reproduced. Furthermore, he proclaims that this "is still a work that no one interested in this area can afford to neglect." As W.C. Dickinson has commented, "it is his monument, for in it he puts flesh and blood on the whole Reformation movement."


Innes says of this work, "the author who has enabled us to see his own confused and changing age under 'the broad clear light of that wonderful book' the History of the Reformation in Scotland, and who outside that book was the utterer of many an armed and winged word which pursues and smites us to this day, must have been born with nothing less than genius -- genius to observe, to narrate, and to judge. Even had he written as a mere recluse and critic, looking out upon his world from a monk's cell or from the corner of a housetop, the vividness, the tenderness, the sarcasm and the humor would still have been there" (John Knox, p. 45).


Moreover, Burton writes, "there certainly is in the English language no other parallel to it in clearness, vigor, and picturesqueness with which it renders the history of a stirring period" (cited in Innes, John Knox, p. 45). This edition far surpasses the edited down version that is available in paperback.


Over 600 pages of stirring Reformation history.



The Works of John Knox Volume 2 - Unedited History of the Reformation in Scotland (Books 3, 4 and 5) and six appendices, index, etc.   


"John Knox portrayed the origins and development of a movement and not a mere chronology of events... Knox based his arguments on original sources and he often cited the documents in full. When Knox's History is compared to the contemporary vernacular narratives of Bishop Leslie and Sir James Melville, the superiority of Knox's work becomes evident. For the most part, these writers were preoccupied with petty details and had no conception of the momentous issues that hung on the events they recorded... Knox used history to demonstrate his single-track philosophy. And his philosophy said: 'The hearts of men, their thoughts, and their actions are but in the hands of God.'


Lee said Knox's History was a sermon without an audience, a preaching book, one long inflammatory speech in behalf of God's truth as the reformer saw it." (Kyle, The Mind of John Knox, p. 13).


Our editions of volumes one and two of John Knox's Works contain the only full, unedited version of John Knox's massive History of the Reformation in Scotland available today.

The Works of John Knox Volume 4


Includes John Knox's "The Appellation... to the Scottish Nobility," "The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women," Answers Concerning Baptism, Form of Prayers/Sacraments in Geneva 1556, "Letter to the Queen," "Summary of the Proposed Second Blast of the Trumpet," and much more.


The Works of John Knox Volume 5


Includes John Knox "On Predestination, in Answer to the Cavillations by an Anabaptist" (462 pp.), which Boettner, in his Reformed Doctrine of Predestination, calls John Knox's "chief theological work." Also, A Letter to John Foxe, Names of Martyrs, etc.

Life of John Knox by Thomas M'Crie
Iain Murray, in his stirring introduction to William Cunningham's Historical Theology writes,

"The third event marking the commencement of this spiritual movement was the publication of a book in 1811. It was the biography of John Knox by Thomas M'Crie. All over Scotland this work was used to revive the memory of the great Reformer and nothing could have been a more telling protest against the stifling influence of Moderatism. It brought many a student and minister into the experience once described by James Fraser of Brae in his Memoirs: 'When I read Knox, I thought I saw another scheme of divinity, much more agreeable to the Scriptures and to my experience than the modern.'"

Thomas M'Crie followed this up in 1819 with a biography of John Knox's great successor, Andrew Melville, and these two books became known as the 'Iliad and Odyssey of the Scottish Church.' Just as Homer's heroes fired the hearts of many imitators so M'Crie's biographies aroused a holy ambition in many to follow the noble example of these two spiritual giants."

M'Crie's work is an undisputed classic regarding this fiery reformer. It exhibits information on Knox and the Scottish Reformation which has been hid in manuscripts and books which are now little known or consulted. Knox may be the most pertinent first Reformation Reformer to study in our day of widespread idolatry, theological and civil pluralism, anti-Christian government, humanistic law, relativism, false ecumenicity, and the revival of that "masterpiece of Satan," Roman Catholicism.

Read everything that you can get your hands on either by or about Knox; you'll never be the same again!

True and False Worship: A Vindication of the Doctrine that the Sacrifice of the Mass by John Knox

A powerful and precise defense of the foundations of Reformation worship (and the regulative principle of worship) set in the context of Knox's refutation of the abominable idolatry of the Roman Catholic mass. The full printed version of this text is free at Kevin Reed has perceptively pointed out, that because of Knox's concern for purity of worship "it is no wonder that the Scottish Reformation was the most thorough among any of the Protestant nations."

Predestination Defended, in Answer to an Attack by an Anabaptist by John Knox (23 Free MP3s)


Quoting freely from John Calvin, his major influence in this work, Knox lays low the heresy that man plays any part in his own regeneration. This heresy, of man's pretended ability to "born himself again," is at the root of all defection from the sovereign God of Scripture and is rampant today! As Kevin Reed notes, in refuting this Anabaptist, Knox unequivocally states,


'For with the Pelagians and papists, you have become teachers of free will, and defenders of your own justice,' clearly recognizing that, 'the defence of man's free will, to do good and avoid evil,' is 'the damned heresy of Pelagius' (Kevin Reed, John Knox the Forgotten Reformer, only available on the Presbyterian Heritage Publications CD at, pp. 219-20).


Knox here shows how God is not the author of sin, though He foreordains whatsoever comes to pass. This book is found on volume 5 of Knox's 6 volume Works.
