I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Aside from the fresh look at the Pearl of
Great Value parable, I especially enjoyed the addendum addressing the gifts
brought by Magi to a young Christ Jesus.
~ Benjamin Potter
an accomplished writer... informative and interesting... I really enjoyed the book and appreciate your "graceful" approach to interpreting the scriptures. ~ Maggie Harding
This is an excellent Bible study. Mr. Russell really develops
insights that I hadn't appreciated before in One Precious Pearl. He writes clearly so that the material is
easily understood by both clergy and laity. It was very edifying for me to read.
~ William J. Petersen, Emeritus Senior
Acquisitions Editor, Baker Book House and Fleming H. Revell
Russell has shown his best work, in the development of the concept of the
Church as a pearl of great price. Throughout this study there is a development
of analogical thought, where the latent imagery of the pearl is made clear for
the modern reader.
content is superior throughout. He has drawn on a natural science and Biblical
thought without violating either. I have learned a great deal about the concept
of a pearl and have appreciated more the concept of the Church as the Pearl of
Christ." ~ Ronald B. Allen, Senior Professor of Bible
Exposition, Dallas Theological Seminary
will never think of a pearl in the same light again. I absolutely love the way
you have drawn a parallel between the pearl and the Church. This is inspired! ~ Elizabeth Hightower, Women's Ministry Leader, Laurelwood
have been Christians for over 40 years, but never have been so enlightened and
enriched as we have been by the in-depth study of the One Precious Pearl. You have
given us new meaning and insight. ~ Jerry & Maureen Shoop, Senior Pastor
