Item description for Higher Ground by R. T. Kendall & Kendall R. T....
Overview Which way is your Christian life going? Every year the Jewish pilgrims would go to Jerusalem to keep the annual feasts. On the way, to help focus their thoughts, they would especially sing psalms 120 - 134, commonly called the Psalm of Ascent. Just as God used these psalms to guide his people on their way to the Temple so today he can use these psalms to effect a change in his church, to bring people into closer relationship with him and produce a radical change in lifestyle on our journey to Heaven. RT. Kendell doesn't give us a line by line commentary but instead takes each psalm's theme and shows how our lives should be different from the world's when we are moving together to Higher Ground

In RT's own words... Our premise is this. It seems to us that there has been a ‘silent divorce’ in the church, speaking generally, between the Word and the Spirit. When there is a divorce, some children stay with the mother, some stay with the father.
In this divorce, there are those on the ‘word’ side and those on the ‘Spirit’ side. What is the difference?
Take those of us who represent the Word. Our message is this: we must earnestly contend for the faith ‘once delivered unto the saints’ (Jude 3), we need get back to expository preaching, sound doctrine such as justification by faith, the sovereignty of God and the internal testimony of the Spirit as taught by men like Martin Luther, John Calvin and Jonathan Edwards. What is wrong with this emphasis? Nothing. It is exactly right.
Take those whose emphasis has been on the Holy Spirit. What is the message? We need to rediscover the power that was manifested in the Book of Acts, there needs to be a demonstration of signs, wonders and miracles; we need to see the gifts of the Spirit operating in the church – that the world will once again take notice of the church so that people are left without excuse. What is wrong with this emphasis? Nothing. It is exactly right.
We believe that the need of the hour is not one or the other – but both! It is our view that this simultaneous combination will result in spontaneous combustion! And then, but almost certainly only then, will the world be shaken once again by the message of the church.
This was the message I have preached over the years at Westminster Chapel in London. This is what we are endeavoring to preach in America and around the world. This is not all we preach but it is certainly one of the main things we preach alongside the need for total forgiveness and learning to be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. We need your prayers. God bless you.

Very Insightful Jul 19, 2008
R T Kendall is an excellent author and very insightful. This book is an easy and engaging read yet offers you a personal look at the Psalms of the Ascent in the Bible. You will discover hidden truths in each Psalm which will cause you to look at your own life experience. Higher Ground is a treasured selection in my library and I highly recommend it. When I find a book I really like, I usually purchase two copies. I keep one, and share the other copy with friends. This is definitely one of those kinds of books.
