Amazing Grace in the Life of William Wilberforce
by John Piper
William Wilberforce is best known for his successful and hard-working effort in abolishing the slave trade in Great Britain. At seventy pages this book does not attempt to provide a complete biography of William Wilberforce, rather it focuses on his spiritual and Christian life. As with most of John Piper’s books it is very well written and it helps put the Christian driving force to William Wilberforce’s life to the fore, which many biographies fail to do.

The Desiring God website says:
In this concise volume, John Piper tells the story of Wilberforce’s transformation from an unbelieving young politician into a radically God-centered Christian and how his deep spirituality helped to change the moral outlook of a nation.
