This book is a fascinating insight into the life, work and mission of The Salvation Army in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland today. During October 2011 Salvation Army corps (churches) and centres were invited to take 'snapshots' of their ministry. While some images were specially commissioned, most pictures in this book were taken by those at the grass roots of the organisation: members, employees, volunteers and service users. Portraits is a record of the Army through their eyes. With 160 pages and more than 500 images in both full colour and black and white, this high-quality hardback publication includes messages from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 19th international leader of The Salvation Army, General Linda Bond. This book is not just for those associated with The Salvation Army; it is for anyone interested in an historical movement that continues to make its mark in the 21st century. Published to coincide with the centenary of the final public address of the Army's Founder, General William Booth, in May 1912, Portraits contains inspirational images, stories and quotes which demonstrate that God, who raised up The Salvation Army, is still at work in the world.
