John Newton is famous for his conversion (a crude slave trader turned Christian) and for his hymns (like “Amazing Grace”). However, many Christians remain unfamiliar with John Newton’s forty years of pastoral labor in England as a “heart doctor” among people with great spiritual needs. As one of the greatest letter writers in Church history, Newton used his wit, wisdom and experiences of grace to help others pursue Christ-centered lives. In the latest addition to Crossway’s Theologians on the Christian Life series, Tony Reinke introduces readers to Newton’s pastoral care by leading them through the life-changing sermons, hymns, and letters Newton wrote to address the most pressing questions of life. Over this sweeping synthesis of Newton’s wisdom on the Christian life, J.I. Packer simply writes, “Here is mastery!”
