Description

William Wilberforce (1759-1833) was a truly inspiring man. An evangelical Christian, he was the key voice that led to the abolition of Slavery in the British Empire, which then led it's ultimate abolition worldwide. Abolishing slavery was, according to Wilberforce's critics, impractical, idealistic and fantastically uneconomic. But Wilberforce was convinced that Slavery was an evil that needed to be eradicated, and was finally fulfilled a mere three days before his death.

What would have happened if William Wilberforce had followed the conventional wisdom of today and kept his religious beliefs separate from his political opinions?, or not tried to "impose his beliefs on others"?, or had allowed the desire to be "relevant", "tolerant" and "popular" to outweigh any desire to stand for what was right?

This is a fascinating look at William Wilberforce's life. The energy, persistence and unashamedly evangelical faith is a shining example to all Christians today. The parallels for the Christian today who holds the unpopular positions that following Christ entails, should be abundantly clear.

Endorsements

"The relatively brief account of the life of William Wilberforce deserves to be widely read by modern Evangelicals. The book records how God honoured Wilberforce's devotion in amazing ways. It is well written, thought-provoking, challenging and encouraging,and is highly recommended."

Evangelical Times

If one wishes to know how William Wilberforce came to be who he was, what he believed and how he acted upon it, read Murray Pura's Vital Christianity. This book is, and I hope will be for years to come, an invaluable resource.
