Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery
Amazing Grace tells the story of the remarkable life of British abolitionist William Wilberforce. This accessible biography chronicles Wilberforce’s extraordinary role as a human rights activist, cultural reformer and Member of Parliament. At the centre of this heroic life was a passionate twenty-year fight to abolish the British slave trade, a battle Wilberforce won in 1807. His efforts to abolish slavery itself in the British colonies resulted in victory achieved just three days before his death in 1833. Eric Metaxas portrays in this celebrated figure a man whom it can truly be said,’he changed the world.’ Before Wilberforce, few thought slavery was wrong. After Wilberforce, most societies in the world came to see it as a great moral wrong.
