Description
Out of Slavery: The Journey to Amazing Grace By Linda Granfield Illustrated by Janet Wilson Hardcover Ages 4 - 6 32 pages "Amazing Grace! (How sweet the sound!)"The hymn';s composer, John Newton, led a successful life as a seafaring trader, sailing from Liverpool to Africa and on to Antigua. His cargo was a lucrative one, for he traded in human beings. It was the height of the slave trade, and he made his terrible journey many times. But one night a storm raged. His ship was almost lost. He prayed that if only salvation would come to "a wretch like me,"; he would leave the slave trade and work towards its abolition. That night was a turning point in Newton';s life. He became an ardent abolitionist and a Methodist minister. But his greatest legacy is "Amazing Grace.";This unique book is an excellent introduction to the history of slavery and also contains the original text of the hymn and map endpapers.
