Catherine Booth: Laying the Theological Foundations of a Radical Movement

by John Read

ISBN: 9780718893200

“Previous writing on Catherine Booth – a cofounder of The Salvation Army – has been broadly biographical, but this book concentrates on the theology…The book reveals some of the major debates that were hot topics in some 19th Century Christian circles: how to understand the atonement, whether you needed a very personal experience of salvation, the relationship between prevenient grace and personal choice in relation to faith, the place of sacraments in the life of the church, the risks of antinomianism etc…Comparisons with today’s renewal movements are invited by this book too. The Booths were inspired to live a Christianity that was faithful to the first generation of Christians. Is that hope as lively today? Are we as hungry to be faithful to the apostolic church?”
Rev Susan Durber, Reform Magazine, (May, 2014)
