William Wilberforces Struggle to Abolish the Slave Trade and Reform the Morals of a Nation

Even the most skeptical cynic about the role of religion in public life would not denigrate Wilberforces decades-long battle against [the barbaric evil of England's slave trade].

I pray it will stimulate thousands of American Christians to follow Wilberforces example. Charles W. Colson
