There is no doubt that RT is a very gifted expositor. He is also in the Lloyd Jones mould of the one man minister, not the team player with a session of elders where there is parity. My personal experience of him in a pastoral situation was that he did not even recognise the decisions of elders in other churches.
This book gives fascinating insight into RT's relationship with the Doctor. One learns new information about LLoyd Jones. RT is very open and honest about his struggles at the Chapel. He comes across as an impassioned evangelist who brought about positive change. In matters charismatic he comes across as a somewhat gullible enthusiast. After all the prophecies he quotes about revival beginning, why does he not see the reality of their falsity? Like his predecessor, RT's his dißsappointment is that revival never came to the Chapel. But at least The Doctor did fill the building. perhaps RT is right to say it was for his own humility that he never managed this.
He has many good insights. he is right that Americans often fail to regognise or bridge the cultural divide when they come to England. However I find him superficial on his view that believers in particular redemption will lack assurance for they will base it on sanctification. I also find it hard to understand how a man who regards the law as no longer binding can be such an enthusiast for tithing. RT is refreshingly open and self critical. He has a proensity for name dropping. His editors should have spotted the he preached on Psalms of Ascent not Assent as printed.
at Westminster Chapel. At first he had the support and encouragement of his predecessor Doctor Martyn Lloyd-Jones. The book shows how the man changed and how life at Westminster Chapel changed. It is not a success story it tells how R T Kendall coped with disagreements and failures. I think it shows the greatness of the man in that the last chapter is entitled 'If I could turn the clock back'. In this chapter he describes how he would do some things differently if he could turn the clock back. We may not all be great preachers but I feel we can all learn something from this man's relationship with God and his attitude to people whoever they are.
