Publisher's Description

"John Piper's succinct and superbly perceptive study of WilliamWilberforce deserves to become an acclaimed bestseller. It not onlytells the story of a great man's life-it also tells us how tounderstand the ultimate source of his greatness and happiness.Moreover, that understanding goes far deeper than the abolitionistachievements for which Wilberforce is honored, astounding thoughthey were. William Wilberforce's secret, as revealed in this book,was that he made the journey from self-centeredness,achievement-centeredness, and political-centeredness toGod-centeredness. And he made it with Christlike joy."
-Jonathan Aitken

Against great obstacles William Wilberforce, an evangelicalChristian and a member of Parliament, fought for the abolition ofthe African slave trade and against slavery itself until they wereboth illegal in the British Empire.

Many are aware of Wilberforce's role in bringing an end toslavery in Great Britain, but few have taken the time to examinethe beliefs and motivations that spurred him on for decades. Inthis concise volume, John Piper tells the story of how Wilberforcewas transformed from an unbelieving, young politician into aradically God-centered Christian, and how his deep spiritualityhelped to change the moral outlook of a nation.

As world leaders debate over how to deal with a host of socialjustice and humanitarian crises, a closer look at Wilberforce'slife and faith serves as an encouragement and example to allbelievers.
