Amazing Grace is the story of British abolitionist William Wilberforce (1759-1833), a man of whom it can truly be said: he changed the world. Human rights activist, cultural reformer, and member of Parliament, Wilberforce led a twenty year battle to abolish the British slave trade. He won this battle in 1807, and would go on to help abolish slavery itself in the British colonies shortly before his death in 1833. Eric Metaxas's best-selling biography of Wilberforce introduces readers to this extraordinary man, who has remained relatively unknown to the American public. Hero to Abraham Lincoln and inspiration to the anti-slavery movement in America, Amazing Grace will inspire readers everywhere to stand up for what they believe in -- no matter the odds. Eric Metaxas is the author of Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God (But Were Afraid to Ask) and thirty children's books. He is founder and host of Socrates in the City. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Atlantic, the Washington Post, Books & Culture, Christianity Today, Mars Hill Review, and First Things. "A superb history of the British campaign against slavery ... Amazing Grace will prove to you how great a human effort abolition demanded." -- Stanley Crouch in the New York Daily News--USA TodayBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Eric MetaxasPublisher: HarperOnePublished: 11/13/2007ISBN: 9780061173882Pages: 297Weight: 0.55lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.30w x 0.90dReview Citations: Christian Century 11/13/2007 pg. 39
