The Newton Editorials: Light & Life Magazine, 1997-2010


Both long-time subscribers and readers new to Light & Life will find much to treasure in this collection of editorials penned by Doug Newton during the 15 years he edited the magazine. A life-long Free Methodist and tenured pastor, Newton approached with enthusiasm and trepidation the high calling of employing the written word to speak to the church, its members and families. No subject was off-limits, and the gloves came off when needed to touch hearts, minds and lives, and open discussion floodgates. Whether the contents of this volume bring back memories or open new doors, you’ll undoubtedly find words to live by, thoughts to ponder, and many a word fitly written (Proverbs 25:11).
