About the Author

JOHN NEWTON (1725–1807) was born in London, England. His father was a sailor with whom he spent many years at sea. On March 21, 1748, a stormy night at sea turned his heart toward God. He started a new life of prayer and Bible reading. Mary Catlett became his wife in 1750. He worked as a commandeer of a slave ship and then he became a tide surveyor in 1755. He started studying Greek and Hebrew and was sworn in as a deacon in 1764. He became the curate at Olney, England, a small town of farmers and lace makers. He had financial support from John Thornton of London, which allowed him many privileges for relief of the poor and to keep an hospitable open house. He was a swaying influence in the lives of many famous people. The book of hymns called "Olney Hymns" he wrote with his good friend William Cowper. He is most known for writing the hymn “Amazing Grace.”

Charles Doe's collection of John Newton's Olney Hymns gives someone wanting to research or study Newton's hymns a very well organized and concise research tool. I especially appreciate his organizing Newton's Olney hymns from three books into one book with three sections. Also, his "first lines" index and definitions of 18th century English vernacular were very helpful.

Newton's Olney Hymns made a wonderful addition to my hymn book collection. These hymns by John Newton tell a story of repentance and the joys brought through salvation by grace. The richness of the language and the message in the hymns make reading them and singing of them a blessing. A fine addition to any collection

For the price this is great, very clean lay out, nice type set and scriptures are quoted in full. Maybe someday they will make this in a hardcover edition and combine Wiliam Cowpers hymns as well. Lord willing may buy some more copies. Already thinking they may be of use to some of my children.
