Publisher's Summary

William Wilberforce is chiefly remembered as the reformer who campaigned for the abolition of the slave trade in England. He was at the heart of British politics for over 40 years during the inflammatory times of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. He lived just long enough to see the passage of the Act to emancipate all slaves in British territories.

Drawing on a vast array of previously unpublished manuscripts, John Pollock presents a full picture of the man, who was "exciting, lovable, delightful, with faults which must have maddened his friends."

biographies are blessings for the future

My appreciation for Wilberforce, life, mission, and Christ have grown from this bio. I love that this was detailed account from great amount of research. Much of the account is from journals of Wilberforce and his peers.
