Who was Catherine Booth?
Major Dr John Read is the author of ‘Catherine Booth: Laying the foundations of a radical movement.’ Based on doctoral research, Dr Read will not only explore how Catherine’s musings on ‘practical religion’ and theology were critical to the innovative early days of The Salvation Army but how they continue to speak to ‘our’ contexts.
