A History of The Salvation Army's Medical Services

  • By Harry Williams
  • 244 pages.
  • Published 2009, Crest Books
Author Harry Williams has taken the title for this book from an article published in a Salvation Army magazine in 1898, which declared: 'No army engaged in actual warfare is complete without its ambulance and medical corps.' The article was commenting on the creation of the movement's first Medical Department. The books title fits neatly with The Salvation Army's quasi-military metaphor. But an army's ambulance corps serves exclusively its own troops. The Salvation Army's medical services exist for the sake of those outside its ranks — a huge difference. Salvation Army hospitals and clinics have never existed just for the movement's own wounded soldiers, far from it. Perhaps more than any other avenue of Salvation Army services they have epitomized the movement's own wounded soldiers, far from it. Perhaps more than any other avenue of Salvation Army service they have epitomized the movement's philosophy of service to others. This volume — so much more than a history book — makes that abundantly clear.
