Ever wish there was a cartoon the detailed the account of how the Salvation Army was started? Well, your wish has come true. The Christian History Institute has recently released “The William Booth Story,” a DVD that chronicles the tale. From their website:
“Introduce children to the action-packed story behind the Salvation Army and its founder William Booth. The pub owners and their hired thugs are ready for William and his ragtag followers when they come marching into London’s East End. With clubs and rocks, the thugs are set to chase this preacher out of town once and for all. But William and his “Salvation Army” are not so easily dissuaded! Armed only with Bibles, musical instruments and their unflinching faith in God, they march in to face their most dangerous opponents so far. Who will win the spiritual battle for the hurting souls of this forgotten corner of London?”

- 44-minute documentary, abridged from the program Our People: The Story of William and Catherine Booth
