‘O blessed man! that thus fears the Lord, that delights in his word, and derives his principles, motives, maxims, and consolations, from that unfailing source of light and strength. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, whose leaf is always green, and fruit abundant. The wisdom that is above shall direct his plans, inspire his counsels; and the power of God shall guard him on every side and prepare his way through every difficulty; he shall see mountains sink into plains, and streams spring up in the dry wilderness… The conduct of such a one, though in a narrow and retired sphere of life, is of more real excellence and importance, than the most splendid actions of kings and conquerors, which fill the annals of history, Prov. 16:32. And if the God whom he serves is pleased to place him in a more public light, his labours and cares will be amply compensated, by the superior opportunities afforded him of manifesting the power and reality of true religion, and promoting the good of mankind…’

Book Description

John Newton (1725–1807) was a trophy of God’s grace. His transformation from a blasphemous slave trader to a much loved minister of the gospel is a testimony to the powerful, life-changing grace of God in Jesus Christ. His hymns, letters, and other writings have been a source of strength and comfort to Christian believers for centuries.

Jewels From John Newton, a volume of daily devotional readings, has been lovingly and carefully compiled by one who owes a great debt to the helpful writings of John Newton. She (Miller Ferrie) writes:

‘What impresses me about this man is his honesty in readily admitting his struggles, sinfulness, and failures. This aspect of his writings has been such an encouragement to me personally, for it gave me the assurance that my own daily battles and humiliations are not unique. In addition, he repeatedly reminds his readers of God’s trustworthiness, no matter what circumstances they might be facing. He never ceased to be amazed at God’s grace in the gospel, and it was this grace that he sought to proclaim till his dying day.’

The material included in this book is largely drawn from Newton’s prolific correspondence, and covers a wide variety of topics related to the Christian’s life and experience. Although written more than two hundred years ago, it remains as relevant and edifying as ever.

    I use “Jewels from John Newton” DAILY in my devotional time. I mark each page in pencil that I have read that selection. I use a red marker for those entries that are especially meaningful. I have stopped doing that for each entry sincerely ministers to my life.

    It should be read with “Voices from the Past” and “Valley of Vision.”

    Newton has a tender and compassionate heart. I heartily recommend the book.
