Decades before the Civil War brought an end to slavery in the United States, William Wilberforce was fighting to abolish the wicked practice in England and its colonies. As a committed Christian in Parliament, Wilberforce also set his sights on improving the morals of the English aristocracy, urging them to practice the 'real Christianity' that he depicted in his book A Practical View of the Prevailing Religious System of Professed Christians. His legacy is of a man ahead of his time - and of a politician who can be effective while being truly Christian.
