Shining new light on one of Britain's most celebrated figures, this new biography insightfully explores the beliefs underlying Shaftesbury's passion for the poor
Drawing extensively from Lord Shaftesbury's private journals, this accessible biography shows not just the story of his life-from his happy marriage and many children to his acts of Parliament-but also how his faith led and equipped him to fight for justice in society. Lord Shaftesbury was one of the best loved politicians and social reformers of nineteenth century England. His deep compassion for the poor was legendary, as were his tireless campaigns to limit factory hours, stop the use of boys as chimney sweeps and children in coalmines, and to develop universal education. As a result he changed the character of English society forever. Revealing a moving portrait of a sensitive thinker, areas covered in this important biography include his upbringing and education; his work as a politician and his campaign for mental health; his contribution towards the founding of the Bible Society; his role as a defender of the Protestant faith; his personal theology; and much more.
