Review:

This is a fascinating and enlightening new biography of William Wilberforce, best known for his ultimately successful fight to make the slave trade and slavery illegal.

Eric Metaxas shows that Wilberforce achieved something very few in history have managed—he changed the whole of civilised society’s attitude. Although there is still slavery today, no government and no society believes slavery is right. The exact opposite was the case when Wilberforce began his campaign at the end of the 18th century.

We find at the centre of Wilberforce’s life was his Saviour, the Lord Jesus. We see faith in action. He sacrificed his own political ambitions and spent much of his fortune to improve the lot of his fellow man and society.

Anyone considering entering politics should read this book. Anyone wanting to understand how their faith should affect their life should read this book. In fact everyone should read this book. It will challenge and inspire you to think: What does the Lord want me to do?
