In Darkest England: 130 Years On
In Darkest England 130 Years On
General William Booth, co-founder of The Salvation Army along with his wife Catherine, was a prolific writer.
His most famous book, In Darkest England And The Way Out, was released in October 1890. In it, Booth presented detailed proposals for the reformation of social and welfare services.
The book became an immediate bestseller and was to have a long-lasting impact on the work of The Salvation Army all around the world.
In Darkest England: 130 Years On is a celebration of Booth’s best-known work, offering a range of reflections and observances on the original In Darkest England text.
This is a tribute to one of the more memorable faith-based works of the 19th century; a book whose message, ideology and mission are still very visible in the 21st century Salvation Army.
