More About R. T. Kendall
Dr. R. T. Kendall, renowned pastor and author, spent 25 years as senior minister of the historic Westminster Chapel in London. He has authored numerous bestselling books, conducts conferences all over the world and is a columnist for "Ministry Today". He lives with his wife, Louise, near Nashville, Tennessee.
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.
Awesome, solid scriptural teaching by a true hero of the Word! Dec 10, 2007
R.T. Kendall is not as well-known as some other modern-day Christian pastor/writers, but he should be! He is one of the most deeply spiritual and insightful, not to mention super sensitive to people, Christian leaders I have ever come across in my reading of tons of Christian books! He is just so in-depth and prayerful and utterly awesome. I come away from all of his books, this one included, with a fresh, revitalized perspective on God, Christ, life, sin, death and the world. I recommend all of his books because they are that good. Truly a hero of the Word!
Thank God for R. T. Kendall! Feb 24, 2006
R. T. Kendall is the greatest Christian Author of our time. His books have comforted me on many levels in my times of extreme trial. His writings reflect an intimate knowlege of God that goes beyond theology, even though he is an esteemed theologian. I haven't read of another author than can see far beyond the obvious and unfold revelation of God's ways in such a delightful manner as Dr. Kendall does. His own personal background and experience with both the Lord and the sometimes humorous church cultures made me laugh out loud! If you never quite understood how the loving God of the New Testament could be the same one as in the legalistic Old Covenent with His list of laws, semmingly impossible to keep, Kendall puts it into persepective through his in-depth study of the Sermon on the Mount, and WHY the Old Testament law was given in the first place!
After reading this book, you will find yourself loving God more. Your life with God will turn into a relationship and not a list of do's and don'ts. As the understanding of the Grace of God emerges we all can.... "Love God, and then do as you please". Reading this book on grace felt like God was speaking to my questions. Many thanks to R. T. Kendall and I can't wait to order another one of his books!
