As you are all no doubt aware this is the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade and much has been said of the role of William Wilberforce and the Clapham Sect in fighting against slavery. If you want to buy a good book about Wilberforce (and two other greats of the faith) then today (0r tomorrow is the day to do it). On the 27th and 28th June the Desiring God online store (John Piper's ministry website) is selling all books for just $US5. The book is titled The Roots of Endurance: Invincible Perseverance in the Lives of John Newton, Charles Simeon, and William Wilberforce and is a good buy at $5! The book focuses on how these three extraordinary men were (and are) examples of "deep and joyful maturity in the face of life-long opposition". While I'm at it, I've just received the latest Zadok Perspectives (No. 95, Winter 2007) and it has a paper by Stuart Piggin that looks primarily at Wilberforce's contribution to the foundation of the Australian Christian Church.

In the beginning was the Word, but it took a while for the hundreds of thousands of words in the Bible to be composed, written down, painstakingly copied, preserved, passed around, tested, accepted, collected together,...
