Luther Lee, D.D. (1800-1889), one of the founders of Wesleyan Methodism, was a nineteenth-century reformer and an ordained minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church. Lee is known to most Methodist historians as a Methodist Episcopal minister who deserted the church that had brought him to spiritual birth and ordination. Wesleyan Methodist church historians know him as the first president of their denomination, an editor of their periodical, and unfortunately, a traitor who betrayed and then subsequently walked away from the church he had helped to establish. His significance to American history has not heretofore been observed.

...there are two groups who should have particular interest in its contents: Methodists and students of the abolition movement in America... It is an outstanding book and deserves a wide readership. * Ashland Theological Seminary *
Lee's story provides students of the Early National Period with a fresh example of the "New Man, The American" (p. 329). * Ohio History *
