John Newton, Slave Set Free
The man who wrote the song 'Amazing Grace' began his career as the captain of a slave ship. When God changed his heart and his life, he began to free the people he kept captive. This is the amazing story of how Newton found 'amazing grace' and became a champion of the faith and abolition.
This series captures the hearts of men and women who loved God above all else. Each book details the life of a missionary or other worker for God from their childhood all the way through their deaths. Their stories are told in a straightforward yet interesting way, providing readers with inspirational, true stories of men and women who served God. The books are digest-sized and around 150 pages in length (my two sample copies are 141 and 175 pages), divided into fairly short chapters for easy reading. - Melissa
