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.

Absolute Must Read Oct 12, 2007
I have never read one of R.T.Kendall's books before, but that will change! I have been a Christian for 23 years and have read over a hundred titles in that time as well as being an avid Bible student. Among my very favorites are The Incomparable Christ, by Oswald Sanders; The Pleasures of God, by John Piper and Knowing God, by J.I.Packer, just to name a few. There is a common theme among these titles and that is God Himself - I cannot get enough of Him! If you are like me, then do yourself a huge favor and read Mr Kendall's new book - it is my new number one out of all the titles I've read. Some of his insights, and clarity of thought can only come from someone who truly knows our God. Very readable. Destined to be a classic.
