“Mr. 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. His 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
