The 2016 edition of The Salvation Army Year Book is now available to purchase as an e-book. It is hoped that many people will take advantage of this facility, allowing them to have a copy of the 2016 Year Book on their smartphones, tablets and some e-readers. As before, printed copies are also available, providing a valuable resource to Salvationists and non-Salvationists alike.
The first Salvation Army Year Book was published in 1906. Since then it has provided an annual snapshot of Salvation Army work and ministry, with facts and statistics supported by reports and articles. The 2016 Year Book includes articles about the online Salvation Army, the accountability movement and celebrating 100 years’ ministry to Chinese communities.
General André Cox writes in his foreword: ‘This edition of The Year Book provides many facts and much information about what God is doing through the worldwide Salvation Army. May this resource encourage you to prayer and service that the world might be won for Jesus Christ.’
Like the printed copy, the e-book features numerous black-and-white photographs of The Salvation Army’s ministry from many of the 127 countries in which it is at work, along with colour sections containing vibrant photos – including memorable images from the Boundless International Congress – and detailed maps. The printed version also exclusively contains a record of officers in designated appointments, details of retired senior leaders, and a list of officer retirements and promotions to Glory.
The 2016 Year Book is available for Kindle e-readers – and the many other devices which can run the free Kindle app – through the various international versions of online retailer Amazon (search for ‘Salvation Army Year Book 2016’). It can also be downloaded onto Kobo e-readers through kobobooks.com. Prices will vary.
Printed copies of the Year Book can be purchased from territorial trade and supplies departments or direct from International Headquarters, at the special price of £5 (plus postage – £1.50 in the UK/£5.09 in Europe/£7.31 for the rest of the world). Please send a cheque made payable to ‘The Salvation Army’ to Communications Section, The Salvation Army International Headquarters, 101 Queen Victoria Street, London EC4V 4EH, United Kingdom.
