100 years after his death, William Booth (1829–1912) is remembered for the role he played in founding the Salvation Army, the evangelical organization that now operates in more than 120 countries. What few people know, though, is that Booth was also a prolific author, writing articles and speeches on topics such as Christian doctrine and women in ministry.

Roger J. Green, professor and chair of Biblical Studies and Christian Ministries and resident expert at Gordon on the Salvation Army, has compiled many of Booth’s more important essays in a new book, Boundless Salvation: The Shorter Writings of William Booth. Green has written extensively on Booth, his theology, Catherine Booth and the organization. A lifelong Salvationist, he’s also the co-editor of Word and Deed: A Journal of Salvation Army Theology and Ministry, and travels internationally for the Salvation Army on speaking engagements. He was the first layperson appointed to the Army’s International Doctrine Council. Click here for more details on his new book.
