''Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me . . .'' So begins one of the most beloved hymns of all time. This is the autobiography of the man who penned those words. John Newton, the self-proclaimed ''wretch'', was an active slave trader for several years until, on a homeward voyage through a violent storm, he experienced what he was later to refer to as his ''great deliverance.'' He tells of the events that led him from sin and bondage to a life transformed by God's amazing grace.
