Item description for All's Well that Ends Well (The New Westminster Pulpit) (The New Westminster Pulpit) (New Westminster Pulpit Series) by R. T. Kendall...
Overview All's Well that Ends Well explores the life of Jacob revealing a three-dimensional character with whom modern readers can closely identify. Despite that fact that God has spoken to Jacob at Bethel and wrestled with him at Peniel, Jacob had a weak faith. Yet his story offers insights into human behavior and God's character that have not changed in thousands of years. The central theme of these sermons, says Kendall, is "letting God love us." Through God's dealings with Jacob and his family, Kendall reveals a God who is faithful, loving and just, demonstrating how we can overcome our weaknesses and grow in Christian faith.

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.

Relief to those who live with regret Jan 16, 2007
It would be very hard to find a person who has reached middle age in life who does not identify (at least a little) with Jacob, a partriarch of the Old Testament. Though he has made many serious mistakes, especially with his family, God still chooses him and identifies with him by calling Himself (God) "The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob". This book is a triumph in the revelation that God can use ALL things to work together for the good of them who love HIM- even our obvious blunders! Thank God for R. T. Kendall for writing this book. I've never seen the life of Jacob from this perspective until now.
