Overview

Hindmarsh draws upon archival and antiquarian sources to consider the life and religious thought of John Newton (1725-1807). He shows how Newton's life sheds light on little explored aspects of the eighteenth-century Evangelical Revival.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...it is a very fine offering....a really notable volume, and one that will long delight and instruct English eighteenth-century scholars."—Church History

This book cannot be too warmly commended for its comprehensive scholarship. We see Newton steadily and see him whole.
Church History
A fine offering. It has given this reviewer more pleasure than anything he has read for a long time.
