The author, General Frederick Coutts, CBE, served as General from 1963 to 1969. In retirement he continued with public work and published a number of books on the history and work of The Salvation Army. He is also the author of Volume Six of the present series.
Volume Seven brings us a complete record of the work and activities of the Army after the Second World War: Albert Orsborn, the sixth General (1946-1954), contends with the rebuilding and restructuring in the aftermath of war. Wilfred Kitching's work of consolidation from 1954 to 1963 is detailed here, as is Frederick Coutt's period as eighth General, from 1963 to 1969. Erik Wickberg, from Sweden, takes the reins of what had by 1969 become a truly international organization. The final part of the volume recounts the work of Clarence Wiseman, the tenth General of the Army since the time of the Founder, William Booth.
Social work, mission, publications, relief aid, music, worship, and meetings with world leaders are but a few of the activities that are at the heart of the international work of The Salvation Army. They represent but some of "The Weapons of Goodwill."
The story of Volume Seven is drawn from five continents; it is fast moving, inspiring, and heartening. With its wealth of human interest and historical detail, this official history will hold your attention by its vivid description of the manner in which the worldwide activities of The Salvation Army expanded.
