'But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had no received mercy, but now you have received mercy.' (I Peter 2:9, 10 New International Version)

Servants Together provides a Salvationist perspective on the ministry of the whole people of God. It deals with key subjects such as God's call, worship and Christian community.

'Salvationist pride themselves on being "doers of the word and not hearers only", and the emphasis we place on rolling up our sleeves and getting on with it is one with which I heartily agree. But action without reflection soon becomes mindless routine; we must continually review what we are doing and why we do it. There is, of course, an even more fundamental need: to examine in the light of Scripture who we are as a people, and where The Salvation Army fits into the historic Church - that mysterious 'Body of Christ' which God uses, in his mystical mercy, to continue the work of his Son in the world. This book is not, of course, Holy Writ. It represents rather a helpful bringing out and gathering together of the theology that many Salvationists would agree underlies and informs the particular view we have of ourselves and our work. It is my great hope that all who take up Servants Together will be enlightened and stimulated as they read, but even more that they will indeed be led to greater involvement in ministry.' - Retired General John Gowans
