Amazing Grace : William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign, Paperback / softback Book

Amazing Grace : William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

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.
