Crown of Fire by Craig and Janet Parshall is an amazing book! It is about part of the Scottish Reformation with John Knox as one of the main characters. Ransom Mackenzie is swept up in the reformation and has to struggle with what God's role for him is. He also needs to decide if he is supposed to marry the refined, young lady from London, or the wild young lady from the Highlands, who has captured his heart?
The book follows young Ransom from when he is a young teenager who has to become an adult too soon due to the rebellion and his father being arrested for printing the scriptures through him becoming an adult and how he plays a role in the reformation.
I cannot imagine what our forefathers of the Christian faith had to go through to bring God's written Word to the common people. Did you know it used to be against the law to own a Bible? Good men and women died to give us that freedom, yet Christians are standing by doing nothing while our religious freedoms are slowly being stripped away again. Would you be willing to be burned at the stake for your beliefs? You need to read this book that is chock full of history, yes it is a fiction book, but there is a lot of historical fact in the book also.
