Family Heroes: John Knox

ImageKing Richard III is not the only famous person to be buried underneath a parking lot. Slot No. 23 outside St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland is the final resting place (on this earth) of the body of John Knox, reformer, body-guard and founder of the Church of Scotland. A bit ignominious for someone the Scottish nation owes so much to – you know things like free education, civil liberties and the like.

Well, a hero like that deserves to be your family’s hero too – and he can be when you read together age appropriate titles about this fiery Scot.
