John Newton, writer of 'Amazing Grace', was one of the most prolific letter writers, preachers and hymn writers of all time. His writings are filled with great theology and pastoral reflections, and his sermons delve deeply into the Scriptures
Newton shows us that God is always watching over His children, protecting them, nurturing them, picking them up, cleansing them, sanctifying them and pouring out His amazing Grace upon them!
