William Wilberforce's relentless campaign eventually led the British Parliament to ban the slave trade, in 1807, and to pass a law shortly after his death in 1833, making the entire institution of slavery illegal. But it is impossible to understand Wilberforce's long antislavery campaign without seeing it as part of a larger Christian impulse. The man who prodded Parliament so famously also wrote theological tracts, sponsored missionary and charitable works, and fought for what he called the "reformation of manners," a campaign against vice. This is the Wilberforce that Mr. Apted has played down.

This is probably the best book I've read on the topic of spiritual warfare. The book is based on scripture. Spurgeon discusses extensively the fact that we can defeat Satan through the power of the gospel. His writings are practical and he directs his focus to where he found Satan at work in the lives of people - enslaving them in sin, keeping them from the influence of the gospel, hindering their spiritual development, bringing discouragement, depression, and moral failure.
