Amazing Grace details the life and times of British abolitionist William Wilberforce (1759-1833). This biography by Eric Metaxas looks at the extraordinary role Wilberforce had as a human rights activist, cultural reformer and member of Parliament. At the heart of his life was a passionate twenty-year fight to abolish the British slave trade. Wilberforce ultimately won this battle in 1807, and a subsequent one to abolish slavery in all the British colonies (achieved in 1833, three days before his death). Wilberforce saw slavery as wrong and inhumane and his fight against it changed the world.
