    " Again another book about an important historical figure that God used to change so many lives. Sadly, I found, the book didn't do him justice or bring any events to life. Bit of a snooze fest if I'm honest. "

    " His story is an amazing story of God's grace even in our waywardness. But it was a bit slow... "

    " Newton was a remarkable man, yet ever humble. He had a significant impact on the church of his day, right down to the church today. Highly recommended "

    " Good biography of Newton. Very informative on his influence on Wilberforce and other young evangelicals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 12/10/2013

    " Long!!! It seemed the author added every single detail of Newton's life. It got tedious. Although it was long, it was interesting to learn the origins of John Newton and the hymn Amazing Grace. I just thought there was to much detail. "

    " Very interesting man with a great look into the history of the time - England in the days of the Wesleys, contemporaries of Newton. I had no idea of the story behind the slave-trader turned preacher who wrote the hymn "Amazing Grace". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Garland Vance | 7/19/2011

    " This was a phenomenal biography. The short chapters kept you constantly engaged, and Newton's life is an example for believers. This one should be read by many Christians. Newton was used by God to develop deep relationships that not only changed those people but changed the course of history. "
