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.

Fundamental Read for Every Christian Aug 13, 2008
Christians must communicate. This books explains how in a way that is effective and pleasing to God. RT Kendall writes short chapters in everyday vernacular and does not sugarcoat. I actually taught this class chapter-by-chapter for 3 months to seasoned & mature Christians of all age groups and found myself learning more than my students! What brought the important messages of 1) knowing the power of your words and 2)using the fruit of self-control to harness the flaming tongue, home for me, was that the author himself has made every mistake possible with his mouth! His heart to help prevent us from making the same mistakes and realize that we will be held accountable for our words resounds in every chapter, which makes this an easy book to teach and learn from. Also, he backs up the importance of tongue control with many examples throughout Scripture and in specific Bible characters; which makes the knowledge found in this book irrefutable. This book is well written, thorough, easy to read, easy to teach and fundamental to your growth as a Christian. Every church member should read it, every Apostle, Evangelist, Teacher, Prophet, Pastor, Leader, Deacon, Church Office Staff, should have it on their bookshelf. Well done, R.T.! After this, you should read Bruce Wilkinson's, "Prayer of Jebez", "Secret of the Vine", "A Life God Rewards" and "Dream Giver"; "Total Forgiveness" by R.T. Kendall, "Give it Back!" by Kimberly Daniels, "Bait of Satan" by John Bevere, "Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren, "A Tale of Three Kings" by Gene Edwards, "Fasting" by Jentezen Franklin, "Under Cover" by John Bevere, and "Total Money Makeover" by Dave Ramsey. As a Leader, I just read these books over and over again and get new "meat" each time!
