Our new Trinity Forum Reading offers an enhanced new edition of one of our most popular publications, telling the story of William Wilberforce, “an indefatigable reformer and abolisher of Britain’s odious slave trade, [who] arguably led the single most effective stand against evil and injustice in all history.”
This engaging essay by John Pollock will inform and encourage readers as they learn about a man of faith and conviction. “Rather than ascribing to lifeless dogma or dull, conventional religious thinking, Wilberforce and his colleagues were motivated by a robust personal belief in a living God who is concerned with individual human lives, justice, and the transformation of societies.”
This edition includes a new foreword by Trinity Forum Senior Fellow Karen Swallow Prior, the author of works including The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More – Poet, Reformer, Abolitionist. Dr. Prior notes that “The fruit of Wilberforce’s life – including his personal faith and the political influence that stemmed from that faith – was richly fertilized by good friendships.” The Reading also features an introduction by J. Douglas Holladay and author of Rethinking Success: Eight Essential Practices for Finding Meaning in Life and Work.
