Most people are familiar with The Salvation Army, which has more than 1.5 million members and adherents in 109 countries. Many have been directly affected by its activities in health, relief, and community service, but few know much about this unique Christian organization, founded in London in 1865 by William Booth, its first general. The A to Z of The Salvation Army provides a wealth of information on all aspects of The Salvation Army - its history, organization, structure, beliefs, and activities around the world. Written by over 150 contributors, this volume contains a broad introduction, hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries, a comprehensive chronology, numerous appendixes containing both statistical information and Salvation Army documents, an extensive bibliography, and 16 pages of photos.
