Clarke Chapman was born in California and trained at Boston University. He served on the faculty of The Department of Religion at Moravian College for his entire career, from 1963 until his retirement in 2006. Clarke and his family had several stays abroad in Germany for his scholarship. He traveled to the annual Bonhoeffer Society Conferences, often in Europe, and enjoyed an educational tour of St Paul's ministry in Turkey. Passionate about living out his faith, he was active in local peace and justice work, and authored books and articles on the evils of nuclear proliferation. He held leadership positions in LEPOCO (Lehigh-Pocono Committee of Concern) and helped to found the Bethlehem Peace Center. For many years he walked in the annual Christmas Peace Pilgrimage. Some of Clarke Chapman’s contributions to Bonhoeffer scholarship include:
