Abstract:

"To few men is given the opportunity not only of seeing the gaping sores of humanity but also of spending a lifetime in applying to them the antiseptic of love and the emollient of compassion. General Arnold Brown, eleventh international leader of the world movement founded in 1865 by the Rev. William Booth and known as the Salvation Army, is such a man. Into these pages is compressed the essence of what he felt, and saw, and heard, and acomplished in almost fifty years of Salvation Army officership."--Publisher's description
