R. T. Kendall: Holy Fire, reviewed by Mark Sandford


On the last page of Holy Fire, R. T. leaves us with a most encouraging quote from Smith Wigglesworth:

When the new church phase is on the wane, there will be evidenced in the churches something that has not been seen before: a coming together of those with an emphasis on the Word and those with an emphasis on the Spirit. When the Spirit and the Word come together, there will be the biggest movement of the Holy Spirit that the nation, and indeed the world, has ever seen. It will mark the beginning of a revival that will eclipse anything that has been witnessed within these shores, even the Wesleyan and Welsh revivals of former years (p 176).

That blessed day will come more speedily when heralded by voices that honor both the Spirit and the Word as well as each other. A Christian message can soften hardened hearts only when spoken from the heart of Christ. Someone once said, “The messenger is the message.” Such is the voice of R. T. Kendall in Holy Fire.
