A great book about a great man,

The story is an easy read, about a man who fought against the stream and changed the world. For me I found it very moving, because I my self, am a man who is living for others. As this may be good in some situations it is not in others. Living in a peaceful and passive way is not good most of the times.

This is exactly what moved me in the story, this man although lived a life where he could have been as passive as he wants, enjoying the luxuries and joys of life. S

While Bingham's prose is often elementary and lacking in insight, this short volume remains a moving account of one of history's greatest Christian humanitarians.

Recommends it for: Anyone interested in William Wilberforce or the abolishment of the slave trade.
Watched Amazing Grace and realised how little I knew about William Wilberforce, so I thought I'd make up for it by reading a biography. I read it in one day. I'd love to find a longer, more detailed one less aimed at children, but unfortunately I doubt I'd understand the politics involved.
