"It would, indeed, be difficult to name another historical personage who in such degree as Knox revealed a nation's genius to itself, and at once vitalized and dominated its collective thought and action. To present Knox in this twofold aspect, at once as a great Scotsman, and a figure of European importance, is the object of the present biography."
Moreover, Brown continues, noting that in Knox,
"we have precisely what distinguishes the great religious leader from the mere religious visionary... we have seen in Knox one of the great emancipators of humanity, whose work left undone would irremediably have injured the highest interests not only of his own country but of the community of civilized nations... For the mass of his countrymen, those who have shaped the nation's destinies in the past as they must shape them in the future, Knox is the greatest person their country has produced."
