Item description for Voices Against Slavery: Ten Christians Who Spoke Out for Freedom by Catherine House...

Overview
Over two hundred years ago slavery was a fact of life. People were bought and sold in the same way that animals were, or sacks of flour. Often a slave was treated worse than an animal, with little or no regard for life or dignity. Slavery is still a fact of life for people today. Although slavery has been banished in America, the U.K. and other western countries, people are still bought and sold around the world. Even in today's liberated democracies children and young people are smuggled across borders and thrown into a life of captivity and worse. Today's slave markets are unseen by most of the world but still destroy countless young lives. We need to speak out again in the 21st century. Our voices need to be heard. Catherine House introduces ten voices that spoke out for freedom. These men and women come from different times and different backgrounds but they have one voice - a Christian voice - a voice against slavery

Reviews - What do customers think about Voices Against Slavery?

Great Resource  Nov 9, 2008
This book is a great resources for anyone who wishes to find out more about the Atlantic Slave Trade and the Abolitionist movement both in England and the United States. There is also an entry for a woman who uses her position of influence to resist modern-day slave traders.


It is a book that is inspiring for any Christian, not just for children or for young people.


Voices Against Slavery - Anthony Benezet
Voices Against Slavery - Olaudah Equiano
Voices Against Slavery - Granville Sharp
Voices Against Slavery - William Wilberforce
Voices Against Slavery - Elizabeth Heyrick
Voices Against Slavery - Samuel Sharpe
Voices Against Slavery - Harriet Tubman
Voices Against Slavery - Harriet Beecher Stowe
Voices Against Slavery - David Livingstone
Voices Against Slavery - Baroness Cox

The voices against slavery include well-known ones like William Wilberforce, Harriet Beacher Stowe, and Harriet Tubman. There are also lesser known individuals who played key roles in bringing about the abolition of slavery in their countries. All of these were strong Christian people who took stands that were unpopular in their time.

Some were political leaders, others housewives, and still others merchants.


This book should inspire all to follow Christ even into the dark places of this world and make a difference for liberty and justice. It has a strong message for those who may be weary in fighting the just cause of the rights of the unborn and the aged, too - people who are often dehumanized by liberalized abortion or so-called "death with dignity" laws. We must not give up the fight for the rights of those who are unable to defend themselves.
