Synopsis

The story of slavery, a man, and the worlds most beloved hymn.John Newton led a rich life. He was a God-fearing man and a successful seafaring trader; his cargo was a lucrative business, for his wares were human beings. In 1748, Newtons ship, the Greyhound, sailed the triangular trade route from Liverpool to Africa and on to Antigua as it had many times before. But on one journey, at the height of the slave trade, a storm raged. Feeling all was lost, Newton prayed that if he were spared, he would leave the cruel world of slave trading behind forever. That night, Newtons prayers were answered, and true to his word, he turned his back on the slave trade. In fact, he went on to become an ardent abolitionist. Among Newtons many achievements, his greatest legacy would be the most beloved hymn of all: Amazing Grace.Out of Slavery: The Journey to Amazing Grace is the story of slavery as well as the man and the hymn.
