ROBERT L PETERSON & ALEXANDER STRAUCH
Agape Leadership promises to be one of the most spiritually inspiring books you have ever read. As we start the 21st century, we desperately need examples of what Christian leaders are to be like.
Robert Cleaver Chapman (1803-1902) provides an extraordinary example of Christ-like, agape leadership. Although little known today, he was a widely respected Christian leader in England during the last century. Chapman became legendary in his own time for his gracious ways, his patience, his kindness, his balanced judgment, his ability to reconcile people in conflict, his absolute fidelity to Scripture, and his loving pastoral care. By the end of his life, Chapman was known worldwide for his love, wisdom and compassion. See godly, pastoral leadership in action through these biographical snapshots from Chapman’s life.
“It will challenge you to be a better leader, a more committed believer, and a brighter light to the world.” — Greg Stephenson, Grace Community Church, Grace Ministries International
“R.C. Chapman’s life is a vivid illustration of Jesus’ teaching. I have given a copy of the book to pastors and ministry leaders with the prayer that we might reject a professional ministry mindset and follow Jesus as Chapman did.” — Peter Hubbard, Pastor/Teacher, North Hills Community Church, Taylors, SC
