“J.C. Ryle you’ve likely heard of, likewise J.N. Darby and C.H. Spurgeon. But what of R.C. Chapman? What if I told you that Darby said of Chapman, “he lives what I teach”? And that Spurgeon referred to Chapman as “the saintliest man I ever knew”? Would you want to learn more about this Victorian-era figure? If so, I would counsel you to procure Robert L. Peterson’s biography of Robert Chapman, Apostle of Love….a well-paced and interesting account of Chapman’s life and ministry.”

“This is a fascinating and inspiring account of a little known saintly man and provides some interesting insights into the churches of the 19th century and the growth of the Brethren movement. You can’t read this and fail to be humbled by the example of such a Christ-like man while, at the same time, being drawn afresh to the Christ he served so selflessly and faithfully for so many years.”
