Amazing Grace: The Story of America’s Most Beloved Song

by Steve Turner
Published by HarperCollins/Ecco
ISBN: 0060002190

The definitive look at what is perhaps the most popular hymn in American history. Turner details the life of the song's author, John Newton. Turner's examination of Newton's life and how it influenced the words of "Amazing Grace" gives an added resonance to the second half of his book, which examines the central historical paradox of Newton's specifically religious song: "although the song still holds its original meaning for millions of Christians around the world, it now has a parallel existence outside the church, where often the only link is a shared belief that it is a song about hope."
