Rediscovering John Knox Then and Now


What are we to make of John Knox on the 500th anniversary of his birth? The picture many have is of an angry man who preached an angry God, hated women, and advocated violence in the name of Christ. Come for a fuller portrait of Knox in the context of his time, designed to help us discover what we can take from Knox's life and teaching for our discipleship and witness today.
