Through meticulous research, Gordon Taylor paints an accurate picture of the life and work of William Booth. He tries to imagine what it was like to be William Booth and wherever possible lets Booth speak for himself, through his public addresses and his personal writings, as well as reflecting what some of his critics were saying and how he responded to that criticism. Drawing on parish and church records to record Booth's early years, the author presents a fascinating narrative also built around letters, diaries and newspaper reports, to give a sense of immediacy and vitality.

Gordon Taylor is a life-long Salvationist, who imbibed the Army spirit from his officer-parents and grandparents. He worked for the Greater London council, 1965-86, on planning, housing and social policy and research.

The two-volume review of William Booth's Life and Legacy brings together his research experience and broad knowledge of Salvation Army history and tradition, drawing on a wide range of sources to document and explore the life of William Booth, and to record how the legacy of William Booth has been commemorated and celebrated by the Army in the century since his promotion to Glory in 1912.
