Presentation

Although not widely known today, Robert Chapman was one of the most respected Christians of his generation. His humble and caring attitude has had a tremendous effect on the lives of men such as George Müller, J. Hudson Taylor, John Nelson Darby, and Charles Spurgeon. These remarkable men agreed that Chapman was a giant among them.

This exceptional man served God in the small town of Barnstaple, England, during the 19th century. Chapman deliberately avoided publicity because he did not want to attract the attention that was rightfully due to his Lord. Yet, towards the end of his life, he was recognized around the world for his great compassion, wisdom and love. These words characterized him: “My task is to love, without trying to get others to love me in return.

The life of Robert Chapman cannot help but challenge the Lord's people to deepen their devotion to Christ and to love others more selflessly.

“We speak of the heavens, but Robert Chapman lives there […] He lives what I teach. " - John Nelson Darby
