Catherine Booth (1829-90) was the wife of William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army. Highly intelligent but by nature shy, she braved a rigid code by breaking into the silence at the close of a Service to begin her public witness for Christ, thus preparing the way for thousands of Salvationist women preachers of all races. Her contribution to the improvement of social conditions was immense, but she never ceased to declare that man's greatest need was power to lead a new life in Christ.

Church History/Theology Throughout his life, William Booth sought to minister to the least, the last, and the lost. Booth, together with his wife Catherine, founded and organized the world-wide mission that is still known as The Salvation Army. Booth's focus on the poor and marginalized comes directly from his theological convictions and his relationship with the Methodist movement in Great Britain, particularly his understanding of John Wesley's doctrine of sanctification and emphasis on social activism. This grounding was the matrix from which Booth transformed his world. "Dr. Roger J. Green has written a bold, insightful biography of a remarkable man whose legacy continues today in more than one hundred countries of the world. This portrait of an imperfect but dedicated leader will illumine readers and awaken them to a new understanding of William Booth as a thoroughly biblical Christian and adaptable pioneer with a heart that burned for God." Lt. Colonel Marlene Chase, Editor in Chief, Literary Secretary, The Salvation Army National Headquarters "Roger Green brilliantly shows how the life of William Booth was shaped by: (1) the early Methodists in England and their commitment to both personal and social holiness, (2) his own poverty, and (3) the organizational genius of John Wesley. This is a valuable book that underscores the link between The Salvation Army and the worldwide Methodist family. It can only deepen our kinship and strengthen our resolve to more closely work together!" George H. Freeman, General Secretary, World Methodist Council "This biographical study by Roger Green is a wonderfully textured and theologically sensitive portrait of General William Booth. May it enable readers to recognize and emulate Booth's synthesis of vital Christian piety and active social service." Paul W. Chilcote, Professor of Historical Theology & Wesleyan Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida "Roger Green gives us remarkable and unprecedented insight into the life of the founder of The Salvation Army, William Booth. His scholarship carefully documents the powerful influence of John Wesley and Wesley's Methodist legacy on General Booth's life, theology, and world-wide ministry. Green gives us a balanced and provocative look into the strengths and flaws of this very human soldier-saint, illuminating the Wesleyan DNA of Booth's legacy, The Salvation Army." Jonathan S. Raymond, Ph.D., President and Vice Chancellor, William & Catherine Booth College, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada Roger J. Green is Professor and Chair of Biblical and Theological Studies at Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts. He is co-editor of Word and Deed: A Journal of Salvation Army Theology and Ministry. Dr.Green is also a member of the Salvation Army International Doctrine Council.

Catherine Booth's achievements--as a revivalist, social reformer, champion of women's rights, and, with her husband William Booth, co-founder of The Salvation Army--were widely recognized in her lifetime. However, Catherine Booth's life and work has since been largely neglected. This neglect has extended to her theological ideas, even though they were critical to the formation of Salvationism, the spirituality of the movement she cofounded. This book examines the implicit theology that undergirds Catherine Booth's Salvationist spirituality and reveals the ethical concerns at the heart of her soteriology and the integral relationship between the social and evangelical aspects of Christian mission in her thought. Catherine Booth emerges as a significant figure from the Victorian era, a British theologian and church leader with a rare if not unique intellectual and theological perspective: that of a woman.

Describing the faith and accomplishments of a self-giving and God-centered world-changer, this portrait is most concerned with Mother Booth's intellectual and spiritual journey. That journey was shaped by revivalists, social activists, and feminists. Booth, in turn, influenced the movement she headed through life-long fidelity to the doctrine of entire sanctification and her conviction that a Christian must be fully consecrated to God.

Rich in historical events and colorfully written, this fascinating account of women in the church spans nearly two thousand years of church history. It tells of events and aspirations, determination and disappointment, patience and achievement that mark the history of daughters of the church from the time of Jesus to the present. The authors have endeavored to present an objective story. The very fact that readers may find themselves surprised now and again by the prominent role of women in certain events and movements proves an inequality that historical narrative has often been guilty of. This is a book about women. It is a setting straight off the record -- a restoring of balance to history that has repeatedly played down the significance of the contributions of women to the theology, the witness, the movements, and the growth of the church. An exegetical study of relevant Scripture passages offers stimulating thought for discussion and for serious reevaluation of historical givens. This volume is enriched by pictures, appendixes, bibliography, and indexes. Like many of the women whose stories it tells, this book has a subdued strength that should not be underestimated.

This volume provides an introduction to the diverse role that Christianity has played in American history. The multiperspectival approach of the volume reflects not only the pluralistic nature of Christianity's role in American culture, but also the breadth of interpretive methods used in the study of American religious history. The 32 essays of American Church History underscore Christianity's multiformed influence in American history. The general introduction to the volume includes guidelines on how to use the work as a resource. The 32 essays are clustered around five main themes: religion and culture, religion and ethnicity, religious thought, "mainstream" religion, and alternative in religion. Each of the five major sections includes a general introduction to the theme. Introductions to each of the essays highlight both the interpretive significance of the particular essay as well as the importance of the topic in American religious history. Brief but substantial bibliographic essays for each main section and essay provide useful guides to students and scholars interested in pursuing further research on a particular topic.
