The Francis Wayland Institute exists for the purpose of propagating and defending
from a Christian perspective the ideals of liberty, property, peace, free markets, limited
government, and sound money. It is not a Bible
institute, a college, a seminary, a correspondence school, or a
school of any kind. The Francis Wayland Institute is a think tank in the
intellectual tradition of the nineteenth-century Baptist minister Francis
Wayland (1796-1865). The Institute is dedicated to making available online and
printed materials that
uphold the ideals of liberty, property, peace, free markets,
limited government, and sound money from a Christian perspective.
Francis Wayland's classic work on economics, The Elements of
Political Economy, is now available online in PDF
as well as in a newly reset hardcover
The director of the Institute is Laurence
M. Vance. His article about Wayland called "Francis Wayland:

the Military; and twenty-two other books. All books currently offered can be seen here. Contact the director here.
