What about the life of an 18th century human trafficker could inspire you?
John Newton found himself the captain of a ship transporting slaves from Africa to England. On each journey, he mercilessly subjected hundreds to inhumane conditions only to be sold if they survived. But in a life-threatening storm, he cried out to God for help. Saved from imminent death, Newton soon realized he had also been saved from himself. Twenty years into his journey of knowing the grace and mercy of God, Newton penned Amazing Grace, the unforgettable hymn of redemption.
At 82, Newton said, "My memory is nearly gone, but I remember two things, that I am a great sinner, and that Christ is a great Saviour."
The Life of John Newton is a biography that will inspire every man, woman, and child. His spiritual transformation highlights the unstoppable force of God's love and unlimited grace regardless of one's own wretched history. Distributed by Tubemogul.
