William Wilberforce is probably best known as the leader of the parliamentary campaign for the abolition of the slave trade in the United Kingdom. But behind his heart for justice lay a commitment and desire to serve God that permeated not only his life, but also his writings. Michael D. McMullen has worked extensively on the life and manuscripts of Wilberforce and has carefully selected these daily readings to help readers not only know the man better, but also to point their eyes to the God whom he served.

Taken from his spiritual journals and his one published book, as well as his unpublished works, letters and recorded reflections on scriptures, we meet in these writings a man who is introspective and self–deprecating, believing he fell far short of the standards expected of a Christian. But his devotion and love for the God who called him to be an ‘Agent of Usefulness’ is abundantly clear. These words that he wrote to challenge and encourage himself will do the same for a new generation of readers.

William Wilberforce is known as the leader of the Evangelicals in parliament who were responsible for the abolition of the British slave trade. Blessed with a sunny personality, he was also a genuinely humble man who laid out his inner thoughts in written musings on his faith. Michael McMullen has selected some of the best of them as daily readings. Each extract is given under a verse from scripture, the source of his reflections.
