William Wilberforce was a world-class statesman, a politician whose profound Christian convictions not only led to the abolition of slavery in the British Empire but also paved the way for the development of the Welfare State. The forthcoming film, starring Ioan Gruffud, Albert Finney, Michael Gambon and Rufus Sewell, is directed by Michael Apted and is released in March 2007 in the UK. It is released by Walden Media, the same company as made the film of 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'. This entirely new biography by celebrated author Eric Metaxas is meticulously researched and vividly readable. It will contain approximately 75 stills from the film.
Metaxas is a witty, prolific and much feted author in the US, where he writes for the New York Times and Atlantic Monthly as well as Christianity Today. He has authored more than 20 children’s books and innumerable articles. A writer for Chuck Colson, and equally well known in secular and Christian markets, he is described by Os Guinness as “supremely gifted, irrepressibly creative, and astonishingly versatile”.
