I quite enjoyed this little book by the author of the famous hymn Amazing Grace. Not really an auto biography, but rather John Newton's account of his own spiritual development and conversion. In one review I saw some complains about the heavy emphasis on sin and sinfullness. What struck me most, though, was the focus on God's providence and guidance. The style is old, of course, but the language reasonably modernised. FAVOURITE QUOTE: "I trust that His will and my true interest are inseparable." I need to add something some years after I wrote the above part of this review. I couldn't help wondering about the lack of remorse over his participation in the slave trade. That must have developed later. Maybe it is a good example of how we only gradually grow in understanding of the will of God and of our own sin, also after repentance and conversion.
I learned that this is one of my favorite books.
