The author has been a history and classics teacher in the Glasgow area for many years. His second degree, in theology, was obtained from Trinity College of the University of Glasgow. A post as historical researcher on old Glasgow give him the invaluable expertise to apply the detailed research required for a very popular novel on the brave covenanters, specifically Alexander Peden.

Now Robert has taken up the cudgels again for an equally exciting novel, based on fact, about the world-famous father of the Scottish Protestant Reformation, John Knox. This redoubtable figure, “a thundering Scot” to some, and a “Watchman for Scotland” to others, he towered over others in freeing the Scottish church from the trammels of Rome, and a corrupted church then. He brought an open Bible, with free access to God for each man, and a future vision also for educational provision for all.

Scotland owes John Knox of Haddington a great debt, and Robert Watson brings to vivid life this great reformer, this man of iron. From galley slave to Geneva, to Frankfurt, to Edinburgh, absolutely timely in this 450th anniversary of Scotland’s Reformation.
