Catherine Booth (1829-1890): If you had to choose one 19th century woman who most influenced church history, you’d be hard pressed to find a better choice than Catherine Booth! She and her husband, William, founded the Salvation Army, one of the most influential Christian ministry organizations in history. Along with William, Catherine was also a well-known speaker and advocate for the poor and underprivileged. In fact, it has been said that no one family ever spread the Gospel farther and more effectively than the Booths! Today we begin a two-part series on this remarkable woman and her call to preach the Gospel and reach out to London’s poorest and most destitute with the love of Jesus Christ.
