You are invited to join author Kevin Belmonte on a journey through the life and times of William Wilberforce. Explore his childhood, his troubled youth and his departure from Christianity. Learn about his early political ambitions, and the process of his reunion with evangelical faith-an inner transformation that prepared Wilberforce to embrace his destiny. Experience his triumphant emergence from a forty-six year battle to abolish the slave trade and ultimately slavery itself in Britain. And discover how, in forsaking his own success and living for something greater than himself, Wilberforce salvaged his country from the turmoil of war, bolstered the cause of human dignity, and impacted the lives of millions across the globe.
