About the Author

Rick Renner is a highly respected leader and teacher within the global Christian community. Rick first fell in love with the Greek New Testament when studying Journalism and Classical Greek as a university student. In the years that followed, he continued his extensive study of the Greek New Testament, later earning a Doctor of Philosophy in Ministry.

Rick ministered widely throughout the United States for many years before answering God's call in 1991 to move his family to the former Soviet Union and plunge into the heart of its newly emerging Church. Following an apostolic call on his life, Rick works alongside his wife Denise to see the Gospel preached, leadership trained, and the Church established throughout the world.

Today Rick's broadcast "Good News With Rick Renner" can be seen across the entire former USSR, reaching a potential audience of more than 100 million viewers. He has distributed hundreds of thousands of teaching audio and videotapes, and his best-selling books have been translated into five major languages - Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian, and German - as well as multiple other languages that are spoken throughout the former Soviet Union.

Rick is the founder of the Good News Association of Churches and Ministries, through which he assists and strengthens almost 700 churches in the territory of the former Soviet Union. He also pastors the fast-growing Moscow Good News Church, located in the very heart of Moscow, Russia. Rick Renner Ministries has offices in England, Latvia, Russia, Ukraine, and the United States. Rick, Denise, and their family live in Moscow, Russia.

Sparkling Gems from the Greek is buried treasure for us all. This book gets into the etymology of various words in the Bible. Great study aid as one is trying to go deeper into the word!

Scholarly piece written for common people such as myself. I love anything Rick Renner writes. This book was the first one I purchased and I have never regretted it. Over a thousand pages-definitely worth the price. Has a lot of greek words that helped me understand the culture and background to the scriptures. I purchase this book now as gifts.

This book is an outstanding resource for those who are tired of cutsie devotionals that don't seem to dig very deep. Rick Renner breaks down one or two words from a verse each day and expounds on them using the original greek meaning. This is a great gift for someone who loves the Word and wants to dig a little deeper but doesn't have the time or resources to do a bible study at home. Rick has aptly named this book 'Sparkling Gems' - he hands you a new one each day. He definitely breathes new life to verses that we've read many times before.

This book seems as much a Greek reference work as a daily devotional, yet it's fascinating and easy to read. Rick Renner has an extraordinary ability to bring a whole new level of clarity and revelation to New Testament scriptures that you thought you understood before you started reading what he has to say! His down-to-earth, conversational style makes him easy to read, yet his knowledge of the original Greek takes you deeper into grasping the original intent of a passage than you've ever gone before. Rick is unique among Christian authors because he combines his skill as a teacher of faith and the Spirit-filled life with his extensive knowledge gleaned from decades of studying New Testament Greek. I don't know of another devotional in the same league as this one!

I'm on my third time through this wonderfully thought provoking book. Each morning I turn on my Nook and read the daily devotion that never fails to inspire my day. I find something new each time that I start the book again. So if you want to be inspired to explore the word of God more fully, just purchase this book. You will begin to sparkle like a gem by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Great daily book read to help with study of the scriptures. It gives the meaning behind the Greek word and helps with understanding of the meaning of the verse. It also helps you apply the scripture more effectively to your everyday life.

I rate this a number one book, I had never felt the spirit of the Lord like I did reading just a passage out of this loaned book! I can't wait until I can own my own book! Awesome!

Phenominal! Best devotional I've found! I must admit that I have not read the entire book---1046 pages worth, but of what I have read, Renner is right on. I truly feel that God wanted me to have this book and He has spoken to me through the work of Renner. I love it so much that I cannot just read one day's worth of reading at a sitting.

I have just recently begun to delve into the riches of this book's insight into the original meanings of many biblical words, and this has helped open the door to deeper understanding of many things that were previously difficult to fully grasp when reading the bible. It's a must-read for anyone who wants to dig deeper.
