I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in William Booth and the Salvation Army, or in social history of the UK in the 19th century.
In this book Booth explains his views on how a Christian should live and act. In this memoir-like book Booth writes a lot about the poverty and destitution he saw in the slums of London. He includes some of the stories of people he met to help him explain his points of view on poverty and humanitarian help.
