Christianity in Action: The History of the International Salvation Army

Front Cover
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, Sep 15, 2009 - History - 286 pages
This meticulously researched yet engaging book traces The Salvation Army s history of service from its beginnings in Victorian England to its present-day mission in all parts of the world. / A phenomenal religious movement, acclaimed for its compassionate service, The Salvation Army now works in no fewer than 118 countries, yet no contemporary book has chronicled this high-profile organization until now. Henry Gariepy s well-written, comprehensive account effectively fills that gap.
