Excerpt from John Knox: His Ideas and Ideals
Ample acknowledgments are due not only to the standard work of Dr. M'crie and the solid volumes of Dr. Hume Brown, but also to the slighter sketches by Mrs. M'cunn, Mr. Taylor Innes, and the late Dr. W. M. Taylor of New York, each of which has its own special charm. Upon john Knox's House and the translation into modern English Of T he Hz'sz'ory of Ike Reformation much affectionate and successful labour has been bestowed by Mr. Charles J. Guthrie. The lecture in Carlyle's Heroes, though brief, was epoch-making; there is a fine touch in the late R. W. Barbour's chapter in The Evangelical Succession and R. L. Stevenson's essays in Men and Books is fresh and suggestive. But it is to Dr. David Laing's six volumes of Knox's Works that the reader must turn who desires to see Knox face to face; and it is to this conscientious editor's immortal labours that I have to express the deepest debt of gratitude.
