All's Well that Ends Well explores the life of Jacob, revealing a three-dimensional character with whom modern readers can closely identify. Despite the fact that God has spoken to Jacob at Bethel and wrestled with him at Peniel, Jacob had a weak faith. Yet his story offers insights into human behavior and God's character that have not changed in thousands of years. The central theme of these sermons, says Kendall, is "letting God love us." Through God's dealings with Jacob and his family. Kendall reveals a God who is faithful, loving, and just, demonstrating how we can overcome our weaknesses and grow in Christian faith.
"I warmly greet my celebrated near-neighbour in London on the appearance of yet another of his remarkable Bible character studies. May the pivotal, yet enigmatic figure of Jacob inspire R.T. Kendall's public with the thrill and the adventure of life with God." - Richard Bewes Former Rector of All Souls Church, Langham Place
"R.T. Kendall's fast-pace style makes the story of Jacob live for the modern reader. I heard the original sermons at the Keswick Convention some years ago and was challenged by them. In this extended treatment there is much help to the non-christian as well as nurturing for the believer. The author does not avoid controversy but always is very practical and homely in his style." - Philip H. Hacking Vicar of Christ Church, Fulwood Sheffield
The New Westminster Pulpit Series is based on sermons preached weekly by R.T. Kendall while he was minister at Westminster Chapel.
