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 and Scribd, as well as in a newly reset hardcover edition.

The director of the Institute is Laurence M. Vance. His article about Wayland called "Francis Wayland: Preacher–Economist," which appeared in the Winter 2006 issue of the Independent Review, can be seen here. A new and greatly expanded edition of the director's book, Christianity and War and Other Essays Against the Warfare State, can be ordered here. All books currently offered can be seen here. Contact the director here.

The Institute is maintained solely by the voluntary contributions of like-minded individuals.
