JOHN NEWTON
John Newton (July 24, 1725 – December 21, 1807) was a clergyman, poet & former Sea Captain born in Britain. Considered a hypercritic by critics for participating in the slave trade despite holding strong Christian convictions, Newton & poet William Cowper published a volume of Hymns in 1779. The volume included ‘Amazing Grace’, which has since become one of the most instantly recognizable songs in the English speaking world with numerous modern interpretations.
