William Booth, born April 10, 1829, faced rowdy crowds, physical attacks, and cranky drunks when he took the gospel to the streets of London. His wife, Catherine, who read the Bible eight times before age 12, assisted him in reaching poor and struggling people for Christ. Through their world and their willingness to endure obstacles, God changed lives forever.
Their story is told in a new Torchlighters DVD, The William Booth Story, produced by Christian History Institute and The Voice of the Martyrs.
