The Authoritative Life of General William Booth

George Scott Railton (1849 - 1913)

William Booth, together with his wife Catherine founded a small mission in London which eventually expanded to become a global movement, carrying the Christian gospel message of salvation and holiness under the banner of the Salvation Army. While never losing his sharp focus on personal transformation that saved men and women from the depths of despair, Booth put faith into action by caring for the temporal needs of society wherever the Army gained a foothold. George Scott Railton was the first Commissioner in the Salvation Army and second in command, working closely and intimately with Booth, and traveling extensively around the world. He presents here a comprehensive biography of the man who changed history; Included are many tributes to the General after his death, and further chapters on the spirit of the Army and its work. - Summary by Larry Wilson
