In 1797, there were 11 million African slaves. Most people found the practice acceptable. In the minority, however, was William Wilberforce, an elected Member of Parliament who toiled for years to abolish slavery in Britain. Fueled by his faith, the “Conscience of Parliament” persevered and made history.
Now, on the 200th anniversary of the slave trade’s abolition in Britain, comes a movie chronicling Wilberforce’s fight. This study will help you discuss the deeper themes of the movie. What does it mean to say that Christianity leads to both spiritual meditation and social action? Can any profession be used for ministry? And why do we often need to personally witness injustice to take action?
