John Newton was a rich and princely teacher, a sensitive and caring pastor, and a straight, outspoken guide. His whole ministry bore the marks so evident in his lovely hymns: it was consistently biblical (to share the Word of God), spiritual (to promote walking with God), simple (to make biblical truth and principles plain), and practical (to inculcate personal holiness and sound relationships in church and society). In this collection, every day bears these marks, so useful to every believer, so instructive for those called to minister.

My wife and I are using this devotional, and it is great. One of the best things about it is the amount of Scripture each day has. Many devotionals have a mere verse.. this one has entire sections of God's Word that are relevant to the thoughts of Newton. Thank you! And I am so glad to see there at=re other renditions f 365 as well!
I bought this book at the beginning of the year, after having done Spurgeon's Cheque Book of the Bank of Faith and Morning and Evening for many years. I have found Newton's writing to be really warm and the additional readings really helpful. I used to use Spurgeon to begin my devotional times, but the Newton book is a little deeper.
"‘In Marylynn Rouse, Newton has found a true disciple, and a skilled publicist. By enormous diligence, and self-sacrificing application, she has made herself a leading ‘Newton expert’, and in this sensitive compilation all that expertise is put at our disposal. Come, enjoy and profit!’
—From the Foreword, J Alec Motyer
‘John Newton in his day, for all his colourful past, was among those early evangelical clergy whom Sir James Stephen, in a famous phrase, called ‘the second founders of the Church of England’. Here, from the ripeness of his ministry, his hymns, diaries, letters, sermons and other writings, Marylynn Rouse offers us a Scriptural meditation for every day of the year. No one could have done it better; and no reader who will approach the book with a receptive heart will not be drawn closer to God by the warmth of John Newton’s practical Christian counsel and pastoral exposition.’
—Bishop Timothy Dudley-Smith, Ford, Salisbury
