He founded and served as the first president of Dallas Theological Seminary , and was an influential proponent of Christian Dispensationalism in the early 20th century. John Hannah described Chafer as a visionary Bible teacher, a minister of the gospel, a man of prayer with strong piety. His father, a parson , died from tuberculosis when Lewis was 11 years old, and his mother supported the family by teaching school and keeping boarders in the family home.
Here he discovered a talent for music and choir. Reed of Ohio. They were married April 22, and formed a traveling evangelistic music ministry, he singing or preaching and she playing the organ. Their marriage lasted until she died in Ordained in by a Council of Congregational Ministers in the First Congregational Church in Buffalo and in he ministered as an evangelist in the Presbytery of Troy in Massachusetts and became associated with the ministry of Cyrus Scofield , who became his mentor.
During this early period, Chafer began writing and developing his theology. He joined the Orange Presbytery in due to the increasing influence of his ministry in the south. He aided Scofield in establishing the Philadelphia School of the Bible in From to , he served as general secretary of the Central American Mission.
Then, in , Chafer and his friend William Henry Griffith Thomas realized their vision of a simple, Bible -teaching theological seminary and founded Dallas Theological Seminary originally Evangelical Theological College.
Chafer served as president of the seminary and professor of Systematic Theology from until his death. He died with friends while away at a conference in Seattle, Washington in August In , the newly built chapel was designated the Lewis Sperry Chafer Chapel after the recently passed leader. Chafer had a tremendous influence on the evangelical movement. Chafer was recognized among his friends and peers for his balanced, simple life. He was a well-spoken and relaxed leader and was not a fire and brimstone preacher.
Chafer believed the basic truths for Christian living are found in Romans 5 , a chapter which teaches about peace, grace, weakness, hope, sacrifice, love, and joy. The Dallas Seminary Foundation has also set up a charitable giving program called the Lewis Sperry Chafer Legacy, recognizing the graciousness in Chafer's life.
Chafer is widely recognized as one of the founders of modern Dispensationalism     and was vehemently opposed to covenant theology. His overall theology could be generally described as based on the inductive study of the entire Bible, having similarities to John Nelson Darby of the Plymouth Brethren , moderate Calvinism rejected limited atonement , a mild form of Keswick Theology on Sanctification, and Presbyterianism , all of these tempered with a focus on spirituality based on simple Bible study and living.
Chafer's theology has been the subject of much study and debate in and out of the theological community since his death,    especially on the two larger topics of dispensationalism and Christian Zionism ,  specifically that the Jews are a people called unto God with a separate historical purpose and plan from the Church.
In , Dallas acquired the periodical Bibliotheca Sacra and began publishing it in Chafer wrote about 70 articles for this journal see external links below. In , after 10 years of work, he completed his Systematic Theology in eight volumes. This was the first time that a premillennial, dispensational framework of Christian theology had been systematized into a single format. The books were so popular that it sold out the first printing in six months and needed a third printing within two years.
Chafer's Systematic Theology is a standard dispensational systematic theology at Dallas Theological Seminary. Lewis Sperry Chafer wrote, "These pages represent what has been, and is, taught in the classrooms of the Dallas Theological Seminary".
