“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)

I'm Still Down There
I am sorry to say that, although the song, "Amazing Grace" is one of my favorites, and I love to read and hear biographies, I have attempted 5 times to listen to this book, with no success. How sad.
