The First Blast of the Trumpet

In this mini-documentary shot on location in Scotland, Marie Macpherson narrates the story of how she came to write her novel, The First Blast of the Trumpet based on the early , undocumented life of John Knox. She takes us on a trip around the historic locations mentioned in the novel – from St Mary’s in Haddington, East Lothian, to St Andrews Castle in Fife.

    This sounds like a great read. We have celebrated Knox’ birthday at my church. Had no idea of his early history. Enjoyed the video. Will definitely put this on my to read list.

      thanks Janet. Jury still out whether his birthday is 2013 or 2014 – so I’m still in with a shout. Enjoyed your blog & Tree Soldier’s excerpt. (Still working out WordPress)
