John Newton: From Disgrace to Amazing Grace

Ushering in the New Year

One of my favorite hymns is Amazing Grace. It’s author is John Newton ( 1725-1807). Last Thursday, December 27, 2007, I purchased a book by author, Jonathan Aitken, called, John Newton: From Disgrace to Amazing Grace. Last night, on New Year’s Eve, I thought I would read a chapter or two. However, I didn’t end up putting it down until chapter thirteen. I know you shouldn’t judge a book before you have read the whole thing, but this book is a great read so far. I’ll let you know my final thoughts as soon as I finish.
