Amazing GraceWilliam Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery
"A supurb, scholarly, must-read book", Baroness Cox
William Wilberforce's mission to abolish slavery is far from accomplished. It is to our shame that an estimated 27 million people (50% of all victims are children) in the world today still suffer from various forms of slavery, including prostitution, human trafficking and enforced labour amongst immigrants and the disadvantaged in cities from Britain to Burma.
Published to tie in with Amazing Grace, the forthcoming film starring Ioan Gruffud, Albert Finney, Michael Gambon and Rufus Sewell, this entirely new biography of Wilberforce by celebrated author Eric Metaxas is meticulously researched and vividly readable.
Includes an introduction by Baroness Cox, and 48 pages of colour images from the film.
