IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JOHN KNOX
John Knox, a Scottish religious reformer, is widely regarded as the father of the Protestant Reformation in Scotland. Knox would lead the Parliament of Scotland to embrace the Reformation in 1560.
Through Knox’s influence, The Church of Scotland was eventually reformed along Presbyterian lines, to become the national, established Church of Scotland. Modern Presbyterianism traces its institutional roots back to the Scottish Reformation. In fact, most reformed churches who can trace their history back to Britain are either Presbyterian or Congregationalist in government. The influence of John Knox’s life and teaches are incalculable.
