Statesman and Saint: The Principled Politics of William Wilberforce
 

Details

"God has set before me two great objects: the abolition of the slave trade and the reformation of manners." These passionate words penned by William Wilberforce in 1787 marked the beginning of his lifelong crusade as a Christian statesman and philanthropist. Under his leadership parliamentary and prison reforms were championed, the Church Missionary Society was founded, the British and Foreign Bible Society was established, and countless charitable efforts were made. For forty years he crusaded against slavery in the face of much opposition, and his entire life was dedicated to the improvement of the lives of his fellow Englishmen. In this engaging biographical look at Wilberforce, David J. Vaughan examines the sterling character of this undeniably noble man. Size 1.11" H x 6.94" L x 4.8" W, 340 pages
