Four times in its history - 1925, 1951, 1974 and 2001 - The Salvation Army has organised international training councils which gathered the best leader-trainers from around the world to discuss and learn about best practice for training leaders in the movement. After each event the presented papers, containing the very best perspectives on training Army leaders, were published for limited circulation. Some of the lectures were representative of their day, while others stand out beyond their era and offer to us lessons relevant to today. A Field for Exploits brings together a selection of lectures - including chapters by Generals Bramwell Booth, Albert Osborn, Erik Wickberg, Arnold Brown, Eva Burrows and Paul A. Rader - and makes them available to a wider readership for the first time. Each paper has been carefully revised and updated, and reading guides and discussion starters will stimulate debate on a local level.
