GOD'S SOLDIER by St. John Ervine


Email this review


Two volume life of General William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army, a thoroughly scholarly, and at the same time human biography of a great figure in the history of the last century. An exhaustive research into the available documents, letters, records, accounts of proceedings, contemporary data, and the memories of various and sundry connected with the Army. Enthusiastic admiration for William Booth motivated so tremendous a work, but the last half of the second volume, with its analysis of the forces of disorganization and the reasons back of Bramwell Booth's deposition will antagonize the Organization as such, and the sale will doubtless come primarily from Public Libraries and from people sincerely interested in a detailed history of an important movement in religious history.
