A stirring example of Christian perseverance
26 November 2017
It would be hard not to think well of the man credited with the abolition of slavery. What this book achieves is to oblige the reader to admire the dogged and God-given determination with which emancipation was pursued. It also recognises the causal link between Wilberforce's Christian faith and the determination with which he battled against immense opposition gently to win over sceptics and even opponents. William Hague has written a fair, balanced and inspiring biography.
