On Sunday, I will do a biographical sketch on John Knox before our worship service. I wanted to share the resources I have consulted as well as make some recommendations for those interested in doing some further reading.
For those wanting a shorter read:
- John Knox and the Scottish Reformation were featured in the March 2014 edition of Tabletalk.
- Evangelical Press has published a work on Knox in their bite-size biographies series. It is concise, yet informative.
There are two works that focus on Knox’s ministry and impact:
- Douglas Bond gives a brief bio followed by topical chapters focusing on things such as his preaching, prayer life, etc.
- This short book contains two addresses given by Martin Lloyd-Jones and a chapter by Iain Murray.

We have enjoyed reading Simonetta Carr’s biography for “Young Readers” together as a family.
