Item description for Understanding Theology: Volume 1 by R. T. Kendall...
Overview One of the changes facing the Church as it approaches the 21st Century has been its inability to pass on the basics of theology. The Westminster Chapel Society of Theology was set up to counteract this drift. Now, for the first time these lectures have been brought together to give a well rounded and accessible understanding of the major doctrines of Christianity. This book is for pastors, church leaders and people who feel that the time is long overdue to come to terms with theology but have found it boring and hard.
Publishers Description The content and the format of the book are its strengths - the content is searching, clear, profound and fair minded. Rather than 'duck' an issue R.T. explains both sides of an argument - showing its history and logical development. The book is laid out in outline form. This enables you to see the clear pattern of the source and development of a doctrine whilst accessing the information as succinctly as possible. People from a wide spectrum of evangelical belief have found this a very helpful doctrinal series. It has brought them and will bring you, closer to the Bible in your understanding and closer to God in your life.

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.
