The Mighty Weakness of John Knox by Douglas Bond
A very enjoyable book! It is helpful to see Knox as one who struggled with fear but was used in a mighty way for kingdom purposes. Douglas Bond summarizes the weakness of Knox; weakness that was ultimately used for God's glory. "Knox was transformed from weakness to might by God's power."Douglas Bond communicates well with young people, and this book is especially useful for young people seeking to make their lives count for the Lord.
Knox is a model for the ordinary Christian,especially the one who feels his own weakness but who nevertheless wants to serve Christ in a troubled world My siblings love this author so I know they will be delighted to read this volume!“The life of Knox, then, is not just for people who like shortbread and bagpipes, kilts and oatcakes. Neither is it just for Presbyterians or people whose names begin with Mac (or who wish they did). Knox is a model for the ordinary Christian, especially the one who feels his own weakness but who nevertheless wants to serve Christ in a troubled world. Knox is eminently relevant to all Christians who have ever been forced to come face to face with their own littleness” (xx).
well worth the read. Thank you Ligonier Ministries for a copy fo this book to read.
