Amazing Grace in the Coliseum in Rome

Here is a great rendition of Amazing Grace, tough to do an old classic impressively, but the environment helps, and they sing pretty good too.

  1. Thanks for posting this, which I found here via Google when the original URL I had, didn’t work.

    It’s a moving rendition but I think what brought out the tears for me was the thought of that place. I’ve always wondered whether I would actually be able to go into the Coliseum – a place of such evil and suffering that not even two thousand years is enough time for it to fade away.

    So the singing is not only “about” God’s grace but is also actively representing the grace that transcends time.

  2. My wife and I have really been down with health issues and feeling blue. This song got us out of the dumps. Is there any way we can get a copy of the DVD? Thank you.

  3. I sure would like to have this Amazing Grace ti okay at home on a DVD
    Where can I get it?

  4. This beautiful song which is quintessential a Christian hymn makes me think of my love for my Christian brothers and our bond. Growing up Jewish in Texas my childhood friends were mostly Christian and we grew up together sharing wonderful times — sports, hunting, hot rods, girls, etc. I would fight shoulder to shoulder with these guys to preserve our brotherhood.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes.

Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.
