I had anticipated that this biography of the 7th Earl of Shaftesbury KG, a Victorian aristocrat who's Christian faith drove him to bring about reforms in Great Britain to help lessen the strife of the poor and disadvantaged, would be quite interesting but I found it tedious at times and not very readable. There were interesting bits but overall, I was disappointed in this work.
