  • Descrição: In this article, I argue that hateful practices that are prevalent in society are, for the most part linked to our excessive quest for materialism. To demonstrate this, I discuss different ways John Newton, author of the popular hymn, Amazing Grace, justified why he became a slaver in Granfield’s non fiction picture book, Amazing Grace: The Story of the Hymn. Knowing fully well that slavery was wrong, Newton willingly participated in the triangular trade business, because he believed it was truly the only he could make a living.
