Amazing Grace tells the story of the remarkable life of the British abolitionist William Wilberforce (1759-1833). This highly accessible biography chronicles Wilberforce's extraordinary role as a human rights activist, cultural reformer, and member of Parliament.

At the center of this heroic life was a passionate twenty-year fight to abolish the British slave trade, a battle Wilberforce won in 1807, as well as efforts to abolish slavery itself throughout the entire British empire, a victory achieved just three days before he died in 1833.

Eric Metaxas discovers in this unsung hero a man of whom it can truly be said: he changed the world. Before Wilberforce, few thought that slavery was wrong. After Wilberforce, most societies in the world came to view slavery as a great moral wrong.
