Newton's story is clearly amazing and to the credit of God's Grace. This biography in its focus on writing about Newton's life falls short in its saccharinised treatment of the struggles and failures in Newton's journey to full faith and total surrender. Having said this, Pollock writes well and his book is worth reading despite my reservations.

What a pleasurable read! Loved, loved, loved this book! God used this story to remind me yet once again that He can and will save anyone who comes to Him in simple faith. No one is too far gone in this life to turn their life around and accept Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. God used Newton in many different ways after his salvation of which the book describes in further detail.

I recommend this book to all people old and young - you will not regret reading this story of "Amazing Grace!"

Enjoyed this biography of John Newton. Being a slave trader was not the only thing that amazing grace covered in his life.

Wonderful! I just loved "seeing" God's hand on John Newton's life, wow, what a life. Encouraging and awesome.
