CBYR John Newton
1 in stock
John Newton’s life was full of adventure, danger, travels, exotic places, and romance. Young readers will encounter each of these things in Simonetta Carr’s carefully narrated and charmingly illustrated book. But more importantly, readers will come to appreciate the way Newton’s life was changed for good, even when he was attempting to run as far as possible from God. In spite of Newton’s rebellion and sin, God’s grace finally won—a grace that Newton recognized as amazing, invincible, and completely undeserved.
“John Newton called himself a spectacle of grace—a prime example to the world of God’s transforming power in the life of a hardened rebel. So I am thrilled to see the colorful drama of Newton get retold for another generation through the child-friendly storytelling skill of Simonetta Carr!”
—Tony Reinke, author of Newton on the Christian Life: To Live Is Christ
