Iain Murray, in his stirring introduction to 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!
