MagisterMichiganAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A satisfying readNovember 28, 2012MagisterMichiganAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Reading through the letters of John Newton (Cardiphonia) left us wanting to read his autobiography. When we realized this edition had been adapted with "more contemporary vocabulary and grammar" to make it more comfortable for the modern reader, we had reservations about this purchase. But the book reads smoothly and feels authentic, even to admirers of Rev. Newton's 18th century style. His honesty about his own sinful heart makes its transformation and his later fruitfulness all the more astounding. You will give glory to God as you read of His many mercies and deliverances to John Newton. *A great book to read aloud; Hillman's revisions are well done.

Ricki Zaracki4 Stars Out Of 5March 22, 2008Ricki ZarackiIf you have anyone in your life that you think will never accept Christ as their Savior, read this book. It reminds us that no one is too far out of reach for God. Very encouraging and uplifting both.
Vicki Aldous5 Stars Out Of 5August 23, 2007Vicki AldousAfter reading this book the song "Amazing Grace" has a deeper meaning to me. John Newton truly realized he was a sinner and God freely forgave him with Amazing Grace.
