This first volume of R. T. Kendall's Understanding Theology has been re-printed every year since it was first published in 1996. The content and the format of the book are its strengths, making it searching, clear, profound, and fair minded. Rather than avoid a contentious issue, Kendall explains both sides of an argument—showing its history and logical development. This format enables you to see clearly the source and development of a doctrine while accessing the information as succinctly as possible.

Top Highlights

“One can learn facts about the Bible and miss the important principles that lie behind these facts.” (Page 9)

“Epistemology is connected to reason, revelation to what is given” (Page 13)

“The conscience, the natural ability of man to reflect on himself in the light of what he knows is right or wrong.” (Page 15)

“Pluralism: the belief that there is more than one way to God, or to heaven.” (Page 14)

“When Jesus said ‘strive to enter in’ the Greek is ‘agonize’.” (Page 10)

Dr. Kendall is convinced of the importance of all Christians being able to understand basic doctrine. Hundreds gather on Friday evenings to learn about "theology made simple" at his Westminster Chapel School of Theology. His lecture notes have now been brought together to give a well-rounded and accessible understanding of the major Christian doctrines. This book is for pastors, church leaders, students and all Christians who feel that the time is overdue to come to terms with theology but who have found it boring and hard. R. T. strives not only for simplicity but balance: matching the practical with the cerebral, the Spirit with the Word.
