Item description for 365 Days with Wilberforce: A collection of daily readings from the writings of William Wilberforcethe friend of humanity (365 Days With) by Kevin Belmonte...
Overview William Wilberforce (1759-1833) led the 20 year fight to abolish the British slave trade-a victory described as 'one of the turning events in the history of the world.' He found 'nothing more effectual than private prayer, and the serious perusal of the New Testament,' insisting that 'in the calmness of the morning, before the mind is heated and wearied by the turmoil of the day, you have a season of unusual importance for communicating with God and with yourself.' This is a collection unlike any other. Drawing directly from Wilberforce's writings, the selections in this book illustrate how God sustained and guided him. Those who seek to walk their pilgrim's progress aright will find much to ponder, pray over and treasure.
