~ A Review of “One Precious Pearl” by Rev. Colin ~

Reproduced immediately below is one of the many positive reviews the book “One Precious Pearl” has received. This one is from Reverend Colin a retired Presbyterian minister in Wales.

A Pearl of a Parable Study

One Precious Pearl – Robert Lloyd Russell

I’m currently reading One Precious Pearl, subtitled ‘God's Design for His Church’, written by Robert Lloyd Russell. This book deals with the parable found in the Bible in the book of Matthew, chapter 13, of which the ‘Parable of the Pearl of Great Price’ is one of a group of seven. Expertly written by a man with over forty years of experience as a popular Bible teacher, this is a book which guides you through the background and interpretation of the parable, concluding each chapter with the instruction to ‘Think and Grow.’ Russell leads you through and stays with you throughout the book, ready to explain and point you towards the answers to your questioning and seeking mind. 

I quote Ronald Barclay Allen, Senior Professor of Bible Exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary, who is quoted on the back cover as follows: ‘Throughout this study there is a development of analogical thought, where the latent imagery of the pearl is made clear for the modern reader. Mr Russell's content is superior throughout. He has drawn on 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.’

This is a book which feeds the seeking and open mind, and which opens the closed heart, to Biblical truth which is as encouraging  as it is enlightening, and which I can thoroughly recommend to all seekers of the timeless truths of the Bible.

Rev. Colin
