Day One Christian Ministries Inc 365 Days with Newton: A Unique Collection of 365 Daily Readings from The Sermons and Hymns of John Newton

Spend a year with the author of the hymn Amazing Grace, John Newton (1725-1807), slave ship captain who dramatically converted to Christ in the middle of a storm at sea. Newton left his life at sea and began to study for the ministry. He was ordained into the Church of England and spent the rest of his life in ministry. George Whitefield and John Wesley greatly influenced his life and ministry. He, in turn, influenced William Wilberforce, who led the worldwide movement to abolish slavery.

Author, Marylynn Rouse, has dedicated years to the study of the life and works of Newton, including The Complete Works of John Newton.This devotional draws directly from her research into never-before-published notes of sermons, diaries, journals, correspondence, as well as some of the nearly 300 hymns Newton wrote, many together with noted poet and friend, William Cowper.
