“Few Salvationists have proclaimed, taught and penned The Salvation Army's Wesleyan theological underpinnings, and in particular those concerning the biblical teaching of holiness, more than … General Bramwell H. Tillsley,” writes Commissioner William W. Francis, former territorial commander of Canada and Bermuda, in the foreword.
It Is Written brings together three of the General's books, Manpower for the Master (1978), Life in the Spirit (1986) and This Mind in You (1990), along with two War Cry series, Troublesome Texts (1964/65) and The Beatitudes (1997).
“General Tillsley's writings cover a broad range of topics,” notes Geoff Moulton, editor-in-chief and literary secretary of the Canada and Bermuda Territory, “including the work of the Holy Spirit, profiles of Jesus' disciples, the Beatitudes and difficult scriptural passages. With its deep Bible knowledge and lively anecdotes, this is a book that students of the Word will return to again and again.”
The book also includes a brief original biography that traces General Tillsley's journey from his early years in Kitchener, Ont., to becoming the 14th international leader of The Salvation Army.
It Is Written: The Collected Works of Bramwell H. Tillsley is available in paperback at store.salvationarmy.ca, 416-422-6100, firstname.lastname@example.org. For the e-book, visit amazon.ca.
