John Welch couldn't be stopped. When he was a boy he was independent, stubborn and had a mind of his own. It all ended in tears when he fell in with a gang of thieves. But then he met God. John left his sinful life and became a preacher. With God beside him no one could stand in his way - not even the King of England or the King of France!
This is the true story of one of Scotland's most adventurous preachers. As the son-in-law of another fiery Scot - John Knox - John Welch was bound to cause a stir - and he did! Find out about how he conquered roughians, saved a town from the dreaded plague and even dodged a cannon ball!
