This vivid biography tells afresh the life story of William Wilberforce (1759-1833), the statesman whose profound Christian convictions compelled him to campaign against the slave trade in Georgian Britain - a two decade struggle that led to the abolition of slavery in British territory.

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 twentyyear 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.
