Spend a year with the author of the hymn Amazing Grace, John Newton (1725-1807), slave ship captain who dramatically converted to Christ in the middle of a storm at sea. Newton left his life at sea and began to study for the ministry. He was ordained into the Church of England and spent the rest of his life in ministry. George Whitefield and John Wesley greatly influenced his life and ministry. He, in turn, influenced William Wilberforce, who led the worldwide movement to abolish slavery.
Author, Marylynn Rouse, has dedicated years to the study of the life and works of Newton, including The Complete Works of John Newton.This devotional draws directly from her research into never-before-published notes of sermons, diaries, journals, correspondence, as well as some of the nearly 300 hymns Newton wrote, many together with noted poet and friend, William Cowper.
John Newton was a rich and princely teacher, a sensitive and caring pastor, and a straight, outspoken guide. His whole ministry bore the marks so evident in his lovely hymns: it was consistently biblical to share the Word of God, spiritual to promote walking with God, simple to make biblical truth and principles plain, and practical to inculcate personal holiness and sound relationships in church and society. In this collection, every day bears these marks, so useful to every believer, so instructive for those called to minister.
Marylynn Rouse has a background in teaching. She developed an interest in the life and ministry of John Newton, and has been involved for some years in the John Newton Project, a charity dedicated to research into the writings and life of Newton.
