John Newton is famous for his legendary hymn "Amazing Grace." Many have celebrated his dramatic conversion from a life in the slave trade to his eventual work to end it. But often overlooked are Newton's forty years as a pastor ministering to parishioners and friends unsettled by the trials, doubts, and fears of life.

Through a careful study of scores of letters, Tony Reinke brings together Newton's brilliant vision of the Christian life in one accessible place.

To make a long story short, it was exactly what I needed. And so of course I went to google in hopes...

  3. Awesome, food for the Christian life A great book about the pastoral theology of John Newton. The famous author of the hymn Amazing grace, has helped many through his pastoral letters and loving care to discover their own insufficiency and the all-sufficiency of Christ, our all in all. It will help you also, dear reader. I heartily recommend this book of Tony Reinke for everyone who wants a better understanding of how the all-sufficient Christ works through the all-sufficient gospel in the life of the insufficient sinners, like...
