Hindmarsh draws upon archival and antiquarian sources to consider the life and religious thought of John Newton (1725-1807). He shows how Newton's life sheds light on little explored aspects of the eighteenth-century Evangelical Revival. Hindmarsh's discussion of historical theology, pastoralia, and spirituality as well as his consideration of conversion narrative, the familiar letter, and hymnody contribute to a fuller understanding of religion and culture in general.
