Lewis Sperry Chafer

The capstone of Lewis Sperry Chafer’s life as a musician, evangelist, and Bible conference speaker—in addition to founding and teaching theology at DTS—was the publication of his eight-volume Systematic Theology, the last of his books. Dr. Chafer’s presence was a blessing and benediction to his students. He served as the first president of DTS from 1924 to 1952.
