        Abstract

        While Salvationist spirituality is typically perceived in terms of evangelism and social activism, this thesis argues that the Contemplative Tradition is an equally important element of Salvation Army spirituality. Further, it demonstrates that this aspect of Salvationist spirituality has had a significant impact on the Army’s ministry of Spiritual Direction.
