Kregel Publications Out of the Depths

The original and unvarnished account of one of Christianity's most dramatic conversions-the autobiography of John Newton, the author of "Amazing Grace." This is the ultimate full-length "hymn story". The enduring story of a slave-trader turned preacher is a powerful message, as spectacular and compelling today as when it was first written.

Reading through the letters of John Newton (Cardiphonia) left us wanting to read his autobiography. When we realized this edition had been adapted with "more contemporary vocabulary and grammar" to make it more comfortable for the modern reader, we had reservations about this purchase. But the book reads smoothly and feels authentic, even to admirers of Rev. Newton's 18th century style. His honesty about his own sinful heart makes its transformation and his later fruitfulness all the more astounding. You will give glory to God as you read of His many mercies and deliverances to John Newton. *A great book to read aloud; Hillman's revisions are well done.

The book isnn/t just what I had expected but I am enjoying reading it. The book is a good insight to how our Lord works in one persons life. The book gives reason to hope and a reminder of God's Grace to mankind. I am glad I bought it.

If you have anyone in your life that you think will never accept Christ as their Savior, read this book. It reminds us that no one is too far out of reach for God. Very encouraging and uplifting both.

After reading this book the song "Amazing Grace" has a deeper meaning to me. John Newton truly realized he was a sinner and God freely forgave him with Amazing Grace.
