Dr Hindmarsh draws upon extensive archival and antiquarian sources to provide a serious, scholarly consideration of the life and religious thought of John Newton (1725-1807). In addition, he uses the theme of Newton as a 'sort of middle man' to explore the religious understanding of a whole generation who knew themselves as 'evangelical' although this was different from those who later adopted the term as a badge of partisan loyalty. The author shows how Newton is related to other Church of England evangelicals, Methodists, and various Dissenting bodies, and how his life sheds light on little explored aspects of the Evangelical Revival which contribute to an understanding and reassessment of the eighteenth-century church. In addition to discussion of themes in historical theology, pastoralia, and spirituality, an analysis of conversion narrative, the familiar letter, and hymnody contribute to an understanding of the relationship between religion and culture more generally.

This acclaimed volume explores the life and religious thought of John Newton (1725-1807), the famous converted slave-trader who wrote the hymn "Amazing Grace." Drawing on extensive, untapped archival and antiquarian sources, D. Bruce Hindmarsh's scholarly yet thoroughly enjoyable book, called "a milestone in evangelical historiography," offers the best available study of Newton's life and the wider English evangelical tradition.
