John Knox was a bright young lad who grew up to be a strong fighter for freedom and liberty. He had a gentle but fiercely loyal heart and became a stalwart defender of the reformed faith.

This fiery Scot refused to give in to religion or royalty - it was the Bible, the Word of God that was his standard.
