Item description for The General: William Booth, Vol. 1: The Evangelist by David Malcolm Bennett...
Overview The General: William Booth is the first full-length biography about William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army, since 1934. It is in two volumes. The first, The Evangelist, covers his life from childhood to his settling in London with his wife Catherine in 1865, which is usually seen as the year The Salvation Army began. It examines the early life of William Booth more thoroughly than any book before it, paying particular attention to his relationship with Catherine and his time as a Methodist preacher. The second volume, The Soldier, which is to follow, will tell the story of his life from 1865 until his death in 1912, and the early years of The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army has long been recognized in many countries as Christianity with its sleeves rolled up, and has helped millions of people throughout the world.
