Amazing Grace

Full Product Description

‘Amazing Grace’ is the compelling and moving biography of the Member of Parliament who dedicated his entire life to abolishing slavery from the British colonies, William Wilberforce (1759-1833).

In an age where very few thought slavery was unjust, William Wilberforce fought for what he thought was right – freedom for all. It took twenty painstaking years of political and cultural struggles for this brave Member of Parliament to lead the parliamentary bill for the abolishment of slavery in 1807. His heroic campaign is now considered one of the biggest human rights triumphs in human history, and he has become a powerful role model to Christians and non-Christians alike.

Penned by Eric Metaxas, bestselling biographer of ‘Bonhoeffer’, this incredible true story has all the twists and turns of a modern day thriller – deception, danger, betrayal, and unrelenting passion for justice. Read 'Amazing Grace' and discover many sides to the man who changed the world – cultural reformer, passionate politician, man of faith – and be inspired to live in his footsteps.

Publisher's Description

Amazing Grace tells the story of the remarkable life of the abolitionist William Wilberforce (1759 -1833). 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, as well as efforts to abolish slavery itself in the British colonies, a victory achieved just three days before his death in 1833.

Metaxas discovers in this unsung hero a man of whom it can truly be said: he changed the world. Before Wilberforce, few thought slavery was unjust. After Wilberforce, most societies in the world came to see it as a great moral wrong.
