Publishers Description Although he is not widely known today, Robert Chapman was one of the most respected Christians of his generation. His caring and humble attitude had a marked impact on the lives of such men as George Muller, J. Hudson Taylor, John Nelson Darby, and Charles Spurgeon. These notable men agreed that Chapman was a giant among them. This remarkable man served God in the small town of Barnstaple, England, during the nineteenth century. Chapman deliberately avoided publicity because he did not want the attention that rightly belonged to the Lord. Yet at the end of his life he was known throughout the world for his great compassion, wisdom, and love. He is noted as saying, "My business is to love and not to seek that others shall love me." Robert Chapman's life cannot help but challenge the Lord's people to deepen their devotion to Christ and love others more selflessly.

Reviews - What do customers think about Robert Chapman: A Biography?
A man of God Sep 10, 2009
This book describes a man who gave away his considerable monetary wealth and successful law practice for the sake of the gospel. While all Christians desire to live a Christ-like life, such is not easy. Robert Chapman (no relation of mine) was an example of Christ-likeness in practice. The great preacher, C.H.Spurgeon--a few years younger than Chapman--said that he was the saintliest man he ever knew. I found this book a challenge and encouragement to my own Christian life.
An excerpt from the last chapter: Robert Chapman became famous for his exceptional love, grace, and truth. He became so well known in England that a letter from abroad was delivered correctly to him, addressed only to "R. C. Chapman, University of Love, England." He became famous as an apostle of love.'
Perhaps the only criticism I have would be the somewhat detailed record of people, places, and dates of Chapman's life. Maybe I was reading too much at a time, and became lost in the detail. But the book was hard to put down.
