The progress of The Salvation Army in its work amongst the poor and lost of many lands has compelled me to face the problems which an more or less hopefully considered in the following pages. The grim necessities of a huge campaign carried on for many years against the evils which lie at the root of all the miseries of modern life, attacked in a thousand and one forms by a thousand and one lieutenants, have led me step by step to contemplate as a possible solution of at least some of those problems the Scheme of Social Selection and Salvation which I have here set forth.
-Excerpt from the Preface
In Darkest England and the Way Out is a classic of Salvation Army literature and is recognized as one of the world's most respected treatises on social service with spiritual motivation.
Authoring his Scheme of Social Selection and Salvation, the Founder, General William Booth, wrote with a burning passion and a blazing pen of the agony and anguish of "lost souls".
In his day and age, as in ours, the need for prayerful support and practical assistance demands the best that the Army can give with heart to God and hand to man. It has been a balanced ministry from the start: it must remain a balanced ministry.
That is why this book is again being reprinted by the Southern Territory at this time. The forces of evil are every bit as devastating today as ever. But, thanks be to God, there is in the spiritual and social darkness of our times A WAY OUT—in and through the power and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and through the dedication and devotion of today's Salvationists who know and serve Christ. — THE WAY!
