Bethany House has published what it calls “Classics of Faith and Devotion,” reprints of classic works in history. Wilberforce (1759-1833) was a Christian politician in England who greatly influenced public policy with Christian belief. This book, Real Christianity, has the subtitle of Discerning True and False Faith.
We all wonder what it would be like for a great Christian of the past, who thought his own time was corrupt, to be able to see our present time with all of its corruption! Probably, if Wilberforce said the things today that he said two hundred years ago, he would be labeled a fanatic and would be largely ignored. I suppose it is a good thing such men wrote their thoughts for our benefit. They often say plainly what ought to be heard today.
