Great book demonstrating a life moving from total despair to fellowship and fruit for God through His grace. Newton's post conversion life of intense prayer, Scripture reading and service is one for Christians of all times to emulate.
I had read Out Of The Depths, John Newton's autobiography, but Jonathan Aitken's book gave me a much broader and expansive understanding of Newton's influence and what he meant to the whole realm of British Christianity and ultimately to the world's Christianity. I highly recommend it. A great book!
