Lutheran Salvationists? : the development towards registration as an independent faith community in the Salvation Army in Norway with focus on the period 1975-2005 by Gudrun Maria Lydholm( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of a state religion is seldom connected to religious freedom and liberal, modern, and democratic states. However, such a situation existed in Norway until 2012, when the Lutheran Church was the state church of Norway. A large majority of the population belonged to the church, even though the percentage in 2013 had fallen to well over seventy-five. The relationship between the church and minority religious movements demanded adaptation and compromises from the minority churches. The Salvation Army's enculturation and accommodation during its 128-year history in Norway illustrates such a situation. The book examines how The Salvation Army accommodated itself both doctrinally as well as practically to the situation of a dominant state church. The study reveals such a close affiliation of Salvationists to the Norwegian Church as a state institution, that it raises the question of whether a concept of civil religion was implicitly present in Salvationists' view of the state church and their own adherence to the church. This situation also raises the question of what constitutes a real church. The book indicates the tension between Lutheran and Salvationist ecclesiology as well as the influence from the Lutheran Church--from publisher's website
1929 : a crisis that shaped the Salvation Army's future by John Larsson( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1929," begins the author, "a constitutional storm that had long been gathering suddenly burst, sweeping from office General Bramwell Booth, the son and successor to William Booth. So traumatic was this event that for many years '1929' -- for that is how it was known -- was only talked of in hushed tones in Army circles. The telling of what happened was left to those from outside the Army family." Now after 80 years the full story of the crisis, with all its astonishing twists and turns, is set out by a Salvationist writer. In the drafting of this account, General John Larsson (Retired) has had access to hitherto unpublished material, much of it in the Army's heritage centres around the world. "What shook the Army also shaped its future," concludes the author. "Through these events of long ago the Army was set on a path of reform that continues to this day. 1929 is part of our heritage."--Author website
