A great book about a great man 11 April 2013
By W. George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: MP3 CD
Though written a number of years ago, this is still the best book about Wilberforce, a great English politican, legislator and philantropist whose Christian faith motivated him to aggressively fight for decades to end the British slave trade and to establish the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. This is an impressive and affecting book by a thorough, insightful and entertaining author about a man whose works should be better known to more people, and whose like we could use today, again.

wilberforce- written in the Sands of time 6 Jun. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When you read biographies, you suddenly realise that all the illustrious people of our past had to grit their teeth to powder to achieve what we read about in their biographies today.
I have read Nelson Mandela – The Long Walk to Freedom, Wilberforce and Lee Kuan Yew, From Third World to First: The Singapore Story: 1965-2000. I have also read Gandhi. Until I read Mother Teresa, I may be biased to conclude based on the walk of great man in politics.
Nelson Mandela redefined the meaning of forgiveness and was the symbol of tolerance for the greater good of society in the 21st Century.
William Wilberforce as an 18th Century Independent Politician and a born again Christian shaped the governance structures of his time and devoted his entire life to the abolition of the slave trade in and around the British Empire. A feat he accomplished late in his 60s.
Lee Kuan Yew stands to this day as a symbol of commitment to development and progress transforming Singapore at its independence in 1965 from a Third World British Trading Post to a First World Independent country in a single Generation.
These persons and more stand as beacons of light in the human spirit of what can be accomplished and its influence in the world when men devote their lives to selfless service of humanity.
The struggles of these luminaries and their impact on the world of their times stand in judgement to the people of our times.

Did You Know? 27 Jan. 2014
By Rivera V - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It has been rumored by those closest to Morrissey (which is technically nobody) to be the "William" in The Smiths classic "William, it Was Really Nothing".
