Every year at our church, Redeemer Church in White Settlement, Texas (Fort Worth), we celebrate Reformation Day on the last Sunday of October. Even though we are Baptists we celebrate this day because the Reformation brought many biblical doctrines back to the Church, restoring the gospel message to its New Testament purity. Learning a bit of church history and sound doctrine is a good thing. This year the topic is John Knox, the famous Scottish Prophet of the Reformation, so here are the books in my library that are helping me in my research. I have mixed in general Church Histories along with the specific books about Knox.
