The international leader of The Salvation Army is elected by a High Council comprised of more than 100 of the Army’s most senior leaders from around the world.
In this book the author invites readers to step inside a typical High Council in session at the Army’s conference centre in Sunbury-on-Thames to observe what happens. His role is that of a tour guide, explaining and giving the background to the various stages of an event that lasts a week or more.
Drawing on the recollections of previous Generals and little-known historical data, the author weaves the material into a fascinating factual and human interest account of what takes place when a High Council meets.
