Reviewer Merv Collins calls the Australasian Journal of Salvation Army History “one of the Army’s best-kept secrets”.

Reviewed by Merv Collins

Let me introduce you to what I consider to be one of the Army’s best-kept secrets: The Australasian Journal of Salvation Army History, a biannual 170-page online magazine featuring scholarly, but never dull, papers on Army historical events and Salvationist book reviews, all accompanied by excellent pictures and graphics.

The latest edition has papers on the facts and background surrounding Fighting Mac’s Sunshine Song, the Army’s role in training nurses and health care workers in PNG, the first Salvationist wedding in the Philippines and more about commemorative and fundraising buttons than you’ll ever need to know.

The breadth of research to each story is thorough and educational. Add in reviews of several books by or about Salvationists and a charming reminiscence from a woman whose placement in The Salvation Army children’s home in Canowindra changed her life, and you have a journal full of interest to anyone who loves the history of our movement and its people. I’ve become a subscriber – I’d recommend you do the same.
