Lewis Sperry Chafer remains one of the most beloved theologians of the early twentieth century, and this nine volume collection contains his views and expositions on a myriad of topics, such as dispensationalism, salvation, evangelism, grace, the kingdom of Christ, and elements of living a holy life. The founding president of Dallas Theological Seminary and editor of Bibliotheca Sacra, Chafer is considered to be one of the key founders of modern dispensationalism. Known for his faithful life and careful attention to biblical doctrine, Chafer's influence continues to this day. With over 1,500 pages of in-depth and theologically sound doctrine, this collection is vital for any student of dispensationalism or anyone wanting to learn from a trustworthy theologian of the twentieth century.
Chafer was well-known for making theology practical and applicable for his audience. He wanted to provide basic, solid doctrine for laity as well as for scholars, and with the Logos edition, studying his works is easier than ever before. All Scripture references are automatically linked to the Bibles in your library, making study and comparison with your other resources quick and easy. In addition to the titles in this collection, Chafer is also the author of Systematic Theology (8 vols.).
No subject was more dear to the heart of Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer than the teaching of the Scriptures on the spiritual life.
—John F. Walvoord, president of Dallas Theological Seminary
I welcome therefore this present book on these fundamental truths. Having had the privilege of seeing it in manuscript, I bespeak for it the candid attention of all who are concerned for the truth of God.
—C.I. Scofield, in the preface to the 1936 edition of The Kingdom in History and Prophecy
I am glad of the privilege of calling attention to a presentation of the way of salvation which is certain to lead all who read it earnestly to a living faith in Christ, and then to a constant joy because of the abundant and assured provision of God for the Christian life.
—W. H. Griffith Thomas, in the preface to the 1917 edition of Salvation
