Title:Works Of John Newton 6 Vol Set- (OUT OF STOCK UK & US)
: John Newton
Description:Newton's writings have an assured place among the classics of Christian literature. While his style is strong and clear, it is the spiritual attractiveness and importance of his main themes which secure the permanent value of his writings. Most of his books came unpremediated out of a need to help his congregation or individual hearers, and it is in practical helpfulness towards Chrsitian living that he excels. If he is loved rather than admired, it is for this reason. Conformity to Christ is the one subject upon which all his themes finally focus. ('It will not be a burden to me at the hour of death that I have thought too highly of Jesus, expected too much from him myself, or laboured too much in commending and setting him forth to others.'). Not surprisingly, Alexander Whyte could write: 'For myself, I keep John Newton on my selectest shelf of spiritual books: by far the best kind of books in the whole world of books.'
