Item description for John Newton A Slave Set Free (Trailblazers) by Irene Howat...

John stood and watched as some of the largest waves he had ever seen threw themselves at the ship. Very little stood between the young slave ship captain and death and he knew it. His panic and fear made him think only of himself and nothing for the hundreds of men, women and children chained in the hold below. However, God still heard his prayers and the cries of the tortured humanity pleading for mercy and justice. The very man selling them into slavery would soon fight for their freedom. John Newton was one of the worst abusers of the African slave as he travelled the oceans to make money from their misery but in the end his life was changed and so was theirs.

Reviews - What do customers think about John Newton A Slave Set Free (Trailblazers)?

Farily good, but nothing's like the original autobiography  Nov 26, 2008
We purchased this book to read aloud as a family. We're only about three-fourths of the way through, but I must admit I'd prefer to be reading Out of the Depths, Newton's own autobiography. Granted, the original would probably be too hard for my 9 and 7 year olds to understand, but I'm confident that my 11 and 13 year olds would do fine with it.

A Slave Set Free opens a little awkwardly in the present day. In the first chapter, two boys named Chris and James end up doing some exploration on their computer about the history of slavery. In the second chapter John Newton's story begins. Though we haven't finished the entire book, it doesn't appear that the author returns to the modern-day Chris and James computer scene.

Anyhow, my boys are all enjoying it. The author does a good job depicting slave conditions on the ships. My nine year old was moved to tears listening to one of the passages.

Overall, a good book. I've always been happy with Christian Focus Publications. Author Irene Howat also wrote the "Ten Boys/Girls Who..." series, which my kids have really enjoyed.
