Winner of five national and international awards One Precious Pearl is an enjoyable easy-to-read devotional style book which presents new and unforgettable insights. A correct understanding of the parable of the “one pearl of great price” (Matthew 13:45-46) will cause the reader to marvel at this simple phrase of Scripture.
Early in the book the author provides a straightforward look at the three most popular interpretations of this parable. Included is a clear Bible-based rejection of the popular notion that the pearl represents salvation.
The major portion of the work provides parallels between the “one pearl of great price” and the Christian church. Presented are seven unique aspects of a pearl which parallel the uniqueness of the church. Finally, eight additional characteristics of a pearl and their parallels are presented.
As part of the “Christian Concepts Series” by international award-winning author Robert Lloyd Russell, One Precious Pearl is made up of short chapters, each followed by a “Think and Grow” section. The series is great for people on the go, for individual devotional study, and as the text in group study. The intent of the series is to assist the reader in the quest for a deeper living theology and dynamic discipleship as timeless truths are presented with a contemporary perspective while maintaining the integrity of the Word of God.
