Blood and Fire: William and Catherine Booth and their Salvation Army (1999)
by Roy Hattersley
Last year, I attended a dynamic presentation by Joe Bardwell of In Jesus’ Name Productions. Joe is putting together big Hollywood money to produce Christian films on the scale of Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ. The first of a projected trilogy is a biographical film about William and Catherine Booth, the founders of the Salvation Army. Joe’s presentation captured my imagination, and being a student of biography, I decided to read the compelling story of the Booths.
