Reviews - What do customers think about The Amazing Grace of Freedom: The Inspiring Faith of William Wilberforce?

The Amazing Grace of Freedom: The Inspiring Faith of William Wilberforce  Mar 21, 2007
This is an excellent book. It has beautiful pictures and is laid out in an 'easy to read' manner.
 
Excellent all-around look at the big picture  Mar 13, 2007
If you're interested in Wilberforce and want to learn more about his life-- but are not excited about the idea of ploughing through long (or possibly dull) biographies, this book is perfect. Accessible, colorful, and refreshing, it's a well-organized collection of 'articles' written about aspects of Wilberforce's life, friends, colleagues, relationships, influence, and legacy. The variety of authors who penned the book gives it balance, and gives you insight from the perspective of people in different walks of life (who have different reasons for being drawn to Wilberforce).

This is definitely not a 'coffee table book' in the sense one is used to; it's basically just a great anthology that looks attractive like a coffee table book. You'll get some great inside info on the film Amazing Grace as well, but it's not at all the focal point of the book--no fluff involved. Also, the physical quality of the book makes it absolutely worth more than its low price--I was actually surprised that this was not a $24.99 book. Highly recommended.
