RT Kendall - In Pursuit of His Wisdom

(Hodder and Stoughton, £13.99, 237 pages) ISBN 978 144 74972 4

There is always something reassuringly familiar and yet remarkable fresh about any book by RT Kendall. That is the case with his latest; those who have read his books before will recognise familiar themes and the usual suspects from the gallery of biblical characters that RT interacts with so skilfully. In some ways he only has one story and one message: the wonderful reality that God works in and through deeply flawed individuals to bring the blessing of salvation and useful service.

The book focuses on how we can gain wisdom and avoid the blind spots of life-wrecking folly. RT defines wisdom as having “The presence of mind of the Holy Spirit”. He explores this theme by looking mainly at a series of Old Testament characters. All of these display wisdom but have glaring blind spots. The book ends with a chapter on the flawless wisdom of Jesus as a pattern for our pursuit of wisdom.

We live in an age that has knowledge at its fingertips with the click of a mouse or the swipe of a screen; yet never has an age been so subject to foolishness. Wisdom is the gift that allows us to use knowledge with skill; this book makes a contribution to the task of putting wisdom back on our radar.
