Twenty years into his journey of knowing the grace and mercy of God, Newton penned Amazing Grace, an unforgettable hymn of redemption.
The Life of John Newton is a biography that will inspire every man, woman and child. His spiritual transformation highlights the unstoppable force of God's love and unlimited grace regardless of one’s own wretched history.
