Item Description...
A common sailor at the age of 11 and press-ganged onto a man-of-war at 19, John Newton experienced the thrill of action against French warships and the cruel lash of navy discipline for desertion. Rejecting God and morality, Newton entered the slave-trade, became a slave himself and, by the age of 23, was little removed from the state of a wild animal. A violent Atlantic storm brought Newton to his knees and to God. The servant of slaves rose to occupy the pulpit of the most influential church in London. As author of the well-known hymn 'Amazing Grace' Newton left hymns and letters that have inspired many for over 200 years.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Heart warming  Oct 28, 2006
My page references are from the Evangelical Press edition of 1975 (the 3rd impression - 1994).

Since a sizable proportion of readers are likely to be aspiring preachers, it was great to read of his preaching style and preferences on page 94 and following. He "preferred extempore preaching [and] prepared his sermon, writing out his notes in a small hardback notebook, but entered his pulpit without it." (page 95). I have just finished reading (and have just reviewed) a biography of George Whitefield by John Pollock, which I enjoyed immensely. He met John Newton (detailed on page 69 of the volume at hand and page 191 of Whitefield's biography) and it has been great to taste something of the overlap between these men's lives. However, little is said in Pollock's biography of Whitefield's idiosyncrasies when it came to preaching and Bible study. Was he a margin scribbler? Did he keep many books? Did he use any Latin in his preaching? These are things which many readers would want to know about and thankfully Brian Edwards gives us some of this detail. Please note, however, that this is not that I found Pollock's biography lacking - it's just my own personal preferences coming to the fore.

John Newton's journey/ies, both literal and spiritual, are heart warming and inspiring. How much more should we, in the information age, with easy access to good Churches, with Bibles and study aids in abundance and so many good pastors who are grounded in the traditions of the reformers and the puritans, contend for the faith once delivered to the saints.

One of the great advantages of this biography over so many others of its type is that it includes an index! Unfortunately this is lacking in quite a few reformed paperback publications.
