John Knox, the great Reformer of Scotland, is often remembered as something akin to a biblical prophet born out of time strong and brash, thundering in righteous might. In truth he was low in stature and of a weak constitution, a small man who was often sickly and afflicted with doubts and fears. In The Mighty Weakness of John Knox, a new Long Line Profile from Reformation Trust Publishing, author Douglas Bond shows that Knox did indeed accomplish herculean tasks, but not because he was strong and resolute in himself.
The focus of this next volume in The Long Line of Godly Men Profile Series is upon the preeminent English hymn writer Isaac Watts. In an age of simplistic and repetitive worship songs, the church must not forget the father of English hymnody. In this profile of the great hymn writer, Douglas Bond writes that Watts' life and words can enrich the lives and worship of Christians today.
