Overview

God's Army recounts the turbulent history of a radical religious movement that has evolved into one of the world's best-loved charities. Founded by William Booth in 1865, the Salvation Army was born out of London's East End to wage war against poverty and sin, giving the industrial poor hope in a time before social welfare.. "Despite a quasi-military structure, the Army has always considered itself a liberal movement. Never more so than today. In Britain the Army's work is wide ranging - it is second only to the government in its provision of social services - with 3,400 beds for the homeless, seven residential centres for problem and dependent drinkers, the world's largest tracing service for missing persons and countless local welfare projects.. "Over the last two years a team of management consultants has been helping the Salvation Army restructure and re-establish its relevance in a changing society.
