The Reformation brought to light truths which had been hidden and forgotten for many years. The truth which Luther helped bring to remembrance was that of justification by faith. This truth was the source and determinate of his theology. About two hundred years later another man of God helped to bring out a forgotten truth, that of entire sanctification by faith. This man was John Wesley. This truth is regarded by many as being the source and determinate of his theology. The Methodist Church, which sprang from the movement started by Wesley, spread to America, producing many great leaders. Much research has been done on the theology of Wesley and his immediate followers but a lesser amount of research has been done on those who followed him on the American scene. One of those who stood in the Wesleyan tradition in the American scene was C.W. Butler.
