Whether standing beside the grave of buried hopes or basking in the sunshine of God’s love, this book promises to be a source of comfort, strength, and inspiration, helping you to live out the serene trust and unshakeable peace that David himself experienced.
About the Author

He began his pastoral ministry in 1882, serving in several churches before becoming the pastor of Bethany Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia in 1890.

Chapman’s legacy lives on through his writing and the numerous pastors and evangelists he influenced.
