Book Description Christian Focus Publications Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. William Wilberforce (1759-1833) was a truly inspiring man. An evangelical Christian, he was the key voice that led to the abolition of Slavery in the British Empire, which then led it s ultimate abolition worldwide. Abolishing slavery was, according to Wilberforce s critics, impractical, idealistic and fantastically uneconomic. But Wilberforce was convinced that Slavery was an evil that needed to be eradicated, and was finally fulfilled a mere three days before his death. What would have happened if William Wilberforce had followed the conventional wisdom of today and kept his religious beliefs separate from his political opinions?, or not tried to impose his beliefs on others ?, or had allowed the desire to be relevant, tolerant and popular to outweigh any desire to stand for what was right?This is a fascinating look at William Wilberforce s life. The energy, persistence and unashamedly evangelical faith is a shining example to all Christians today. The parallels for the Christian today who holds the unpopular positions that following Christ entails, should be abundantly clear. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9781857929164
