Perhaps our greatest need as we train new generations of church leaders is for role models – godly examples of what Christian leadership should look like.
Though largely unknown today, Robert Chapman (1803-1902) serves as just such an example. Chapman, who was one of J. Hudson Taylor’s close friends and a spiritual mentor to George Muller of Bristol, determined early in his life not only to preach Christ, but to live Christ. In the years that followed, Chapman’s reputation grew to legendary proportions on account of his patience, kindness, gracious ways, balanced judgment, ability to reconcile conflict, fidelity to Scripture, and loving pastoral care. Featuring twelve leadership lessons drawn from Chapman’s life, Agape Leadership demonstrates godly, pastorl leadership in action.
