The August selection of the Chevy Chase History Book Club is Amazing Grace by Eric Metaxas.
Amazing Grace is the biography of William Wilberforce, a British statesman and reformer from the early part of the 19th century. It chronicles his extraordinary contributions to the world, primarily his 20-year fight to abolish the British slave trade, which he won in 1807.
