Lewis Sperry Chafer
American Bible lecturer and theologian. Lewis Sperry Chafer
was born February 27, 1871, at Rock Creek, Ohio. Graduating
from Oberlin College in 1892, he studied under Dr. Frank E.
Finch and was ordained to the Presbyterian ministry in 1900.
Chafer launched into evangelism, demonstrating talent as a
Gospel singer, as well as a preacher. He toured as a renown
Bible lecturer from 1914 until 1924, when he founded Dallas
Theological Seminary and became its first president.
        Chafer was widely honored, receiving a D.D. from
Wheaton (1926), Litt.D., Dallas (1924), and Th.D. from the
Aix-en-Province, France, Protestant Seminary (1946). He wrote
prolifically, producing his widely-read Grace, Salvation and
True Evangelism and his monumental Systematic Theology.
Through all of the acclaim and accomplishments, his students
remember best his deep reverence for the Word and a daily,
humble dependence on the Holy Spirit.
        Dr. Chafer died August 22, 1952, but his work contin-
ues through his books and his students.
