“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.” So begins one of the most beloved hymns of all time. This is the autobiography of the man who penned those words. John Newton, the self-proclaimed “wretch”,was an active slave trader for several years until, on a homeward voyage through a violent storm, he experienced what he was later to refer to as his “great deliverance.” He tells of the dramatic, real-life events that led him from sin and bondage to a life transformed by God’s grace.
“Out of the Depths provides a beautiful picture of the 'mazing grace’ Newton so eloquently described in his famous song.” (Singing News)

A Fine Complement...
"Amazing Grace How Sweet the Sound"
I listen to it frequently. "Who is wise? Let him give heed to these things, And consider the lovingkindnesses of the LORD" (Ps 107:43).
"Grace Abounding to the Chief Most of Sinners." God uses various means and various men to accomplish His will and saves renown sinners in profound ways in order that "Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life" (1 Tim 1:16).
I love his somber voice. It is very memorable and makes it easy to remember phrases and quotes from this book.
