New William Booth Biography

THE publication by Salvation Books of a new two-volume biography of Salvation Army Founder William Booth was preceded by the delivery of the first copies of the book to International Headquarters (IHQ). Author Gordon Taylor was present to receive them ‘hot off the press’.

IHQ Literary Secretary and Managing Editor Paul Mortlock welcomed Gordon to ‘101’ and handed over the newly-produced books, printed by Page Bros in Norwich, to a delighted author.

The fruit of an almost 10-year process of meticulous research, writing, editing and production, this major biography of William Booth examines both the life and legacy of one of the most influential Christian leaders and social reformers of the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.

Gordon Taylor is a lifelong Salvationist and a member of the corps (church) at Croydon Citadel in south London. He has written numerous articles and was the author of the 1986 A Companion to the Song Book of The Salvation Army. He was a member of staff at The Salvation Army’s International Heritage Centre between 1988 and 2011, retiring as associate director.

Comprising in excess of 1,000 pages of text and photographs, William Booth: The Man and His Mission and William Booth: The General and His Army will soon be available through Salvation Army trade departments around the world and as e-books through Amazon and Kobo.
