Chapman graduated from Lake Forest University in 1879 and Lane Seminary, Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1882. Ordained a Presbyterian minister, his first pastorate was split between two churches—in Liberty, Indiana, and College Corner, Ohio. In 1883 he became the minister of the Old Saratoga Dutch Reformed Church in Schuylerville, New York. In 1885, he moved to the First Reformed Church in Albany, New York, and in 1890 to the Bethany Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was one of the founders of the Winona Lake Bible Conference and, in 1900, traveled to the Holy Land. His works include:
