William Wilberforce is best remembered as the parliamentary leader for the British campaign to abolish the slave trade. He took on the financial system of his day and fought an incredible twenty-year battle in order to bring about justice and freedom for the marginalized and the vulnerable. But this rarest of politicians was motivated by a radical faith in Jesus that also led him to spearhead a number of other causes. Read the full story of Wilberforce and his friends in the Clapham Sect: how they not only abolished the transatlantic slave trade that was destroying Africa, but also began a missionary movement in India, sent Bibles across the world, were at the forefront of improving education for the poor of Britain, and finally succeeded in bringing emancipation for all slaves throughout the British Empire. "Inspiring, challenging, encouraging and hard to put down. William Wilberforce encapsulates the breadth of Wilberforce's life, his political wranglings and personal musings, and has fuelled my personal journey in the modern-day battle against human trafficking." Antoinette Daniel, Director of Merton Against Trafficking
