William burst into the house. "I have found my destiny!" he shouted. "I have found a place where there is so much human misery in such a small space that there is a lifetime's worth of work there for me!"
 
Horrified by the poverty and suffering most people took for granted in industrial England, William Booth dedicated his life to bringing the gospel to the outcasts of society who would never enter a church and weren't welcome there. At age fifteen William vowed, "God shall have all there is of William Booth," and not even resistance from the church and government, lack of financial support, or vicious attacks by angry mobs could stop him from spreading the light of the gospel through the streets of England.
 
Today, all around the world, general William Booth's Salvation Army operates thousands of evangelistic and social service centers, changing countless lives with the love of God and the courage of their convictions (1829-1912).

This best-selling, missionary biography series - Christian Heroes: Then & Now - chronicles the exciting, challenging, and deeply touching true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary exploits for His kingdom and glory.

Born in 1829, right in the thick of the Industrial Revolution, William Booth saw hardship from the very beginning. After quitting school at age 13 to help support the family William went to work in a pawn shop and then at age 17 began his preaching career. The following account describes one of history’s greatest evangelical figures. This book does a fantastic job of showing the early history of the Salvation Army and goes in depth in its portrayal of Williams’s life. I literally had trouble putting the book down, it was so captivating. However, I found that the last chapter was slightly confusing and could probably have been left out of the book, although it did make for an interesting ending, albeit a befuddling one. As well, some of the descriptions of people in need or in trouble were disturbing and therefore I would recommend this book for Grades 7 and up. I would give it 4 out of 5.
