John Newton Books
John Newton lived a tumultuous life on land and sea. His faith-filled mother died when he was a young boy and his sea captain father began taking him on voyages when he was just eleven. For the next two decades, he endured the rigorous life of a sailor. He ultimately deserted that life before the mast, but was captured, press-ganged onto a navy ship and flogged. He then joined the slave traffic industry and suffered a stroke. During a tremendous storm at sea, though, his divine purpose rose up and he recognized his need for the “Almighty Saviour.” He began working as a tide-surveyor, where he heard great evangelists speak and he turned to preaching. Letters of John Newton have been published, and The Works of John Newton is available as a four-volume set. Other John Newton books include Jewels from John Newton, Select Letters of John Newton and more.
