Through Many Dangers
Author Brian Edwards
A common sailor at the age of eleven and press-ganged onto a man-of-war at nineteen, John Newton experienced the thrill of action against French warships and the cruel lash of navy discipline for desertion. Rejecting God and morality, Newton entered the slave-trade, became a slave himself and, by the age of twenty-three, was little removed from the state of a wild animal.
Brian Edwards was pastor of Hook Evangelical Church, Surrey, England, for thirty years. He now has a ministry of writing, lecturing and itinerant preaching.
