Here is the fascinating story of The Salvation Army’s indomitable presence in America, from its formation in 1880 to its ongoing crusade today both as a major evangelical movement and as the nation’s foremost human services agency.
These pages are filled with the chronological history of The Salvation Army and with illustrative anecdotes and brief biographical accounts of major figures in the denomination. Writing with the detailed precision of an insider, yet with the judicious balance and careful objectivity of a professional historian, Edward McKinley records the tale of an innumerable company of ordinary men and women, of their courage and compassion, of their daring and dedication, and of their unselfish commitment to the will and work of God in this God-ordained movement.
This second edition, based on thorough archival and scholarly research, is a major revision and update of the widely praised first edition, which was written to commemorate The Salvation Army’s centennial in the United States in 1980. There is also a new chapter on events in The Salvation Army in the years since 1980, a dynamic period that has witnessed a major expansion of the Army’s evangelical thrust and its service to others.
