Right now, I'm reading John Newton, From Disgrace to Amazing Grace. It's the biography of the guy who wrote Amazing Grace. Quite a story, and very well-written by a British former politician who has a pretty amazing redemption story of his own. I'm nearly through now, and I'm trying to decide what to read next. Any suggestions? It doesn't have to be something "spiritual," by the way, I like a good novel as much as the next guy. In fact, that's really the direction I'd like to go next.
If you'd like another suggestion from me--and you're not a history geek--I'd highly recommend the book I read before this: Same Kind of Different As Me. It's a true story about a rich art dealer and a homeless former sharecropper who became unlikely friends. That doesn't make it sound very exciting, I know. But trust me...this book will inspire you.
