This re-issued, single-volume edition of The Salvation Army Handbook of Doctrine is the latest in a long line of books devoted to The Salvation Army's articles of faith. The very first Doctrine Book, entitled The Doctrines and Discipline of The Salvation Army was prepared by General William Booth for use at the Training Homes in 1881. A public edition went on sale in 1883 and various further editions, with the title The Doctrines of The Salvation Army, were published between 1885 and 1913.

A new Handbook of Salvation Army Doctrine was prepared under the direction of General Bramwell Booth and published in 1922, with revised editions appearing in 1925, 1927 and 1935, and subsequent reprints or new impressions in 1940, 1955, 1960, 1961 and 1964.

The next new Handbook of Doctrine was published by General Frederick Coutts in 1969 and this was reprinted several times prior to an entirely remodelled Handbok of Doctrine appearing in 1998 with the title of Salvation Story. A related Study Guide followed a year later.

This 2010 Handbook of Doctrine - which merges the main Handbook with the 1999 Study Guide into a single volume - retains the wording of the 1998 edition, except for minor clarifications and stylistic changes aimed at maximising user-friendliness.
