A Holiness Manifesto is a good climaxtitle for a book prepared by C. W. Butler in life's evening, and I can hardlythink of any one's leaving it out of his library, after having witnessed thenationwide ministry of the Author. I am quoted as having referred to him in theearlier days as the Martin Luther of the Holiness Movement. It is a miracle theway the Lord has strengthened him to write and preach for revivals and campmeetings. The Publisher has been asked to send me my copy, as soon as TheHoliness Manifesto comes off the press.
I have knownDr. C. W. Butler for many years. He is a tower of strength in the holinessmovement. He has been honored and respected by those who have known him, andhis preaching and writings have been a mighty power for God. I am sure thatthis new book, A Holiness Manifesto, will have a large sale and be the means ofblessing many.

Dr. C. W. Butler has had a long and fruitful life inpromoting Biblical truth—especially that of scriptural holiness. His virilemind, logical habits of thought, keen insights into truth, sensitivity ofspirit and loyalty to the highest standards of God's Word have made him anoutstanding leader in Arminian-Wesleyan circles in America.
I know of noman who has kept the passion for a sound theology and a soul-saving ministry incloser union across the years than has Dr. Butler. He has maintained aperennially fresh approach to the Word of God, to the Throne of Grace and tothe souls of men. His sermons by voice and pen have been both intellectually stimulatingand soulfully satisfying. He is eminently qualified to give us instruction onthe "central idea of Christianity," namely, "true holiness." I heartily commendhis Holiness Manifesto to all who would know God and his power through Christ,by the Holy Spirit, to cleanse from all sin.

Forsomething over forty years Reverend Charles W. Butler and I have worked side byside in school, tabernacle, and camp meetings. We have had remarkable agreementin our views on all vital matters of doctrine and general policies. When he iscalled to a camp meeting I know the camp will get great preaching, soundteaching, and rugged truth. His messages come from a rugged personality. A manthoroughly and conscientiously in earnest saturated with truth, shot throughwith experience and mastered by sober thought, tugging at the mind to lead manto God and holiness of heart and life. Possessing strength without arrogance,faithfulness with charity for all that is good, and unbending opposition to allthat is evil or scripturally unsound, his preaching is under the light andanointing of the Holy Spirit. He has continued as long, if not longer in yearsof full salvation evangelism than anyone of our time. A cedar of the mountains,a strong oak of the valley, a gleaming pine of the hills. May the sun linger onhim here until it dawns upon him from the skyline of the everlasting tomorrows.
