February is black history month, and that with the February 23rd release of Amazing Grace, a movie about the life of William Wilberforce, make John Piper’s recently released Amazing Grace in the Life of William Wilberforce a must read for this month.
This is a brief 76 page book that tells a beautiful story of endurance for the glory of God in the righteous cause of the abolition of both the slave trade and slavery in England. Desiring God has generously made the whole volume available for free online here.
Perhaps you know someone who thinks of Christianity as oppressive, or who thinks that the Christian faith would take society back to the dark ages. This book would be a timely evangelistic gift, maybe accompanied by an invitation to see the movie together.
Let the word go forth, slaves to sin can be set free by the power of the Gospel, and what is best for all mankind is glad submission to King Jesus!
