A Holiness Manifesto

Length: 108 pages1 hour



A Holiness Manifesto is a good climax
title for a book prepared by C. W. Butler in life’s evening, and I can hardly
think of any one’s leaving it out of his library, after having witnessed the
nationwide ministry of the Author. I am quoted as having referred to him in the
earlier days as the Martin Luther of the Holiness Movement. It is a miracle the
way the Lord has strengthened him to write and preach for revivals and camp
meetings. The Publisher has been asked to send me my copy, as soon as The
Holiness Manifesto comes off the press.


I have known
Dr. C. W. Butler for many years. He is a tower of strength in the holiness
movement. He has been honored and respected by those who have known him, and
his preaching and writings have been a mighty power for God. I am sure that
this new book, A Holiness Manifesto, will have a large sale and be the means of
blessing many.

S. White, Editor Herald of Holiness

Dr. C. W. Butler has had a long and fruitful life in
promoting Biblical truth—especially that of scriptural holiness. His virile
mind, logical habits of thought, keen insights into truth, sensitivity of
spirit and loyalty to the highest standards of God’s Word have made him an
outstanding leader in Arminian-Wesleyan circles in America.

I know of no
man who has kept the passion for a sound theology and a soul-saving ministry in
closer union across the years than has Dr. Butler. He has maintained a
perennially fresh approach to the Word of God, to the Throne of Grace and to
the souls of men. His sermons by voice and pen have been both intellectually stimulating
and soulfully satisfying. He is eminently qualified to give us instruction on
the “central idea of Christianity,” namely, “true holiness.” I heartily commend
his Holiness Manifesto to all who would know God and his power through Christ,
by the Holy Spirit, to cleanse from all sin.

R. Rose, Ph.D. Prof. of Biblical Theology Asbury Theological Seminary Wilmore,

something over forty years Reverend Charles W. Butler and I have worked side by
side in school, tabernacle, and camp meetings. We have had remarkable agreement
in our views on all vital matters of doctrine and general policies. When he is
called to a camp meeting I know the camp will get great preaching, sound
teaching, and rugged truth. His messages come from a rugged personality. A man
thoroughly and conscientiously in earnest saturated with truth, shot through
with experience and mastered by sober thought, tugging at the mind to lead man
to God and holiness of heart and life. Possessing strength without arrogance,
faithfulness with charity for all that is good, and unbending opposition to all
that is evil or scripturally unsound, his preaching is under the light and
anointing of the Holy Spirit. He has continued as long, if not longer in years
of 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 on
him here until it dawns upon him from the skyline of the everlasting tomorrows.
