John Newton hated being a sailor. The ship's officers gave him all the worst jobs, whipped him if the tasks were not done perfectly, and practically starved him while they ate huge meals. John wondered how God could have let this happen to him. Everyday he got angrier and angrier with the other sailors and with God. He fought with everyone and stole whenever he got the chance. By the time he was seventeen, he had one of the worst reputations in the whole navy!John prayed that God would get him off the horrible warship where he worked, but he never stopped to think that God might have other plans. Read about John's dangers and exciting life at sea and find out what God did have planned for the angry sailor.
