Product Description

From the Publisher

Here is the story of the great slave trade abolitionist, and
its implications for Christians today. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

"John Piper's succinct and superbly perceptive study of William
Wilberforce deserves to become an acclaimed bestseller. It not only tells
the story of a great man's life--it also tells us how to understand the
ultimate source of his greatness and happiness. Moreover, that
understanding goes far deeper than the abolitionist achievements for which
Wilberforce is honored, astounding though they were. William Wilberforce's
secret, as revealed in this book, was that he made the journey from
self-centeredness, achievement-centeredness, and political-centeredness to
God-centeredness. And he made it with Christlike joy."
--Jonathan Aitken

Against great obstacles William Wilberforce, an evangelical Christian and a
member of Parliament, fought for the abolition of the African slave trade
and against slavery itself until they were both illegal in the British
Empire.

Many are aware of Wilberforce's role in bringing an end to slavery in Great
Britain, but few have taken the time to examine the beliefs and motivations
that spurred him on for decades. In this concise volume, John Piper tells
the story of how Wilberforce was transformed from an unbelieving, young
politician into a radically God-centered Christian, and how his deep
spirituality helped to change the moral outlook of a nation.

As world leaders debate over how to deal with a host of social justice and
humanitarian crises, a closer look at Wilberforce's life and faith serves
as an encouragement and example to all believers. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
