The Amazing Works of John Newton

Front Cover
Bridge Logos Foundation, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography - 420 pages
John Newton was one of the most prolific letter writers, preachers, and hymn writers of all time. His hymns and letters are filled with great theology and pastoral doctrine, and his sermons reach into the depths of the Scriptures and apply them to his hearers in such a manner that anyone taking them to heart and applying them will experience the deepest kind of Christian life. Everything John Newton wrote came out of the depths of his personal spiritual journey from a slaver to a saint. It is a journey that shows any sinner there is hope in Jesus Christ, and teaches every Christian that God never stops working, watching over, protecting, never stops picking up those who fall, and never stops cleansing and sanctifying His children in Christ. This new addition to the Pure Gold Classics includes a CD of excerpts from the book including an inspiring rendition of Amazing Grace. Other additions to this classic are selected Olney hymns, selected sermons from Newton's series based on Handel's Messiah, John Newton's spiritual journey in his own words and a definitive biography.
