THE cover image and title of the book about The Salvation Army's 150th anniversary international congress, Boundless – The Whole World Redeeming, has been released by the International Headquarters (IHQ) Communications Section. Boundless – The Experience will be a 120-page photographic book – with informative text to guide the reader through five days that will have lasting repercussions on the worldwide ministry of The Salvation Army.

The book will seek to capture some of the vibrant internationalism, warm fellowship and inspiring worship that took place at The O2 in London, right up to the march along The Mall that brought the congress celebrations to such a memorable conclusion. The IHQ Boundless Media Team photographers were at events right across the congress, taking thousands of photos. These are currently being sifted through to choose a selection that reflects every aspect of a unique gathering.

Major John Murray (International Headquarters Communications Secretary) headed up the IHQ Boundless Media Team. He says: 'The Boundless congress exceeded hopes and expectations for the 15,000 Salvationists and friends who gathered at The O2 in July. We can't go back and relive the congress but – through the outstanding photographs taken by our media team members – we can revisit the Boundless experience and remember over and over again this God-inspired event which has invigorated and re-energised people across the international Salvation Army.'

Boundless – The Experience is scheduled for publication before the end of August and will be sold through the UK Trade Department, SP&S, price £10. More details will be made available next month.
