Saved, Sanctified and Serving PART ONE



DENIS METRUSTERY

Saved, Sanctified and Serving is not necessarily an 'authorised' account of Salvation Army theology, but given the distinguished cast of contributors it is certainty an authoritative work.

Denis Metrustery's opening chapter seeks to contextualise the Army in the Church and the world. He has not only'read' the Army accurately, he has made its history and theology accessible to his intended Salvationist and non-Salvationist readership.

 A word of warning to Salvationist readers! This book is not written exclusively by Salvationists for Salvationists. It is about the Army, not for the Army alone, and it is all the more valuable for that.

General John Larsson says: 'In this groundbreaking book the author fields a strong international team of The Salvation Army's foremost thinkers to offer a fresh 21st-century perspective on the Army's theology and threefold mission. It is ideal both as a thought provoker for Salvationists and as an introduction to the modern Salvation Army:
