Amazing Grace : William Wilberforce and the heroic campaign to end slavery by Eric Metaxas( Book )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tells the story of the remarkable life of the British abolitionist William Wilberforce, and his extraordinary role as a human rights activist, cultural reformer, and member of Parliament. At the center of this heroic life was a passionate twenty-year fight to abolish the British slave trade, a battle Wilberforce won in 1807, as well as efforts to abolish slavery itself in the British colonies, a victory achieved just three days before his death in 1833. This is a man of whom it can truly be said: he changed the world. Before Wilberforce, few thought slavery was wrong. After Wilberforce, most societies in the world came to see it as a great moral wrong.--From publisher description
Martin Luther : the man who rediscovered God and changed the world by Eric Metaxas( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 1,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On All Hallow's Eve in 1517, a young monk named Martin Luther posted a document he hoped would spark an academic debate, but which instead ignited a conflagration that would forever destroy the world he knew. Five hundred years after Luther's now famous Ninety-five Theses appeared, acclaimed biographer Eric Metaxas paints a startling portrait of the wild figure whose adamantine faith cracked the edifice of Western Christendom and dragged medieval Europe into the future. This book tells the searing tale of a humble man who, by bringing ugly truths to the highest seats of power, caused an explosion the sound of which is still ringing in our ears. Luther's monumental faith and courage gave birth to the ideals of liberty, equality, and individualism that today lie at the heart of all modern life.--From dust jacket

If you can keep it : the forgotten promise of American liberty by Eric Metaxas( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eric Metaxas offers a thrilling review of America's uniqueness, and a sobering reminder that America's greatness cannot continue unless people truly understand what their founding fathers meant for them to be. The book includes a stirring call-to-action for every American to understand the ideals behind the 'noble experiment in ordered liberty' that is America. It also paints a vivid picture of the tremendous fragility of that experiment and explains why that fragility has been dangerously forgotten - and in doing so it lays out our own responsibility to live those ideals and carry on those freedoms. Metaxas believes America is not a nation bounded by ethnic identity or geography, but rather by a radical and unprecedented idea, based upon liberty and freedom
