1 Endorsements (in alphabetical order) Rick Renner has given us a treasure. Sparkling Gems From the Greek is a magnificent daily devotional that opens the door of understanding and rich revelation in God s Word. This is the daily devotional that will take you deep into the substance and meaning of scriptures and will thrill your soul. Thank you, Rick you have done it again. You have brought fresh insight to scriptures that bring the Word to life. This is a book I will cherish. Dennis Burke Dennis Burke Ministries Fort Worth, Texas When I read the first page of Rick Renner s daily devotional, I sensed the wisdom and anointing of God. Rick has painstakingly revealed the wisdom of God for us to victoriously live life on a daily basis. Now you can study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). Happy Caldwell Senior Pastor, Agape Church Little Rock, Arkansas In his Sparkling Gems From the Greek, Rick Renner has done an outstanding job of acquainting non-greek readers with the essential language of the New Testament. By tracing these basic Greek terms back to their original roots, Rick adds a great deal to our understanding of the richness and depth of what at first glance appears to be the disarmingly simple language of the New Testament. Rick makes it clear that whereas no translation can exactly reproduce the original meaning, nevertheless, through an understanding of the original language and the broad range of meaning that many of the words in that language possess, it is more readily possible to penetrate and comprehend the meaning of the original language. Dr. John S. Catlin Chairman, Classics and Letters Department University of Oklahoma Although some have used the Greek language in an intimidating way, Rick makes the wonderful truths of God s Word inviting and enriching. Far from taking a stodgy, hyper-academic approach, Rick presents powerful spiritual truths with great simplicity and clarity. He uses dynamic Bible principles that are extremely practical, relevant, and readily applicable. As I read the Gems, I was encouraged, enlightened, and challenged to act on these excellent spiritual v

2 insights. If you want your spiritual life raised to a new level, this book will be a wonderful catalyst for you, and a great asset for promoting maturity and growth in the Body of Christ. Tony Cooke Tony Cooke Ministries Broken Arrow, Oklahoma Until Rick Renner came on the scene, the only Greek I knew owned a restaurant in downtown Chicago! But now, hotter than a sizzling gyros sandwich off the Windy City s Halstead Street, comes Sparkling Gems From the Greek. Rick Renner has a tremendous God-given ability to help anyone who has the desire to gain depth in the Word of God. Every day of the year, you can enjoy a feast of the Renner-selected scripture passages. Bite into Sparkling Gems From the Greek. It s delicious! William (Van) Crouch President Van Crouch Communications Chicago, Illinois Rick Renner is a Bible scholar who takes the revelation of God s Word and changes lives. He understands what it means to put the Word to the test, and he writes out of faithdemanding circumstances. You will be strengthened with fresh insights from God s Word as you read Sparkling Gems From the Greek. Billy Joe Daugherty Pastor, Victory Christian Center I am a firm believer in the fact that there are answers awaiting you in the Presence of God. Any amount of time that you spend in His Presence is never wasted. That s why Rick Renner s devotional, Sparkling Gems From the Greek, is so timely. There s nothing like beginning each day the right way basking in God s Presence, meditating on His Word, and focusing solely on heavenly things. Being a no-nonsense man of the Word like Rick, I like the fact that this devotional is practical and has a strong biblical foundation. It covers true-to-life issues such as spiritual boredom, the desire to escape from dead-end places, the requirements for maintaining an attitude for success, and how to think like a spiritual billionaire. The bottom line is that this devotional will help you change the way you think so you can change the way you live. Dr. Creflo A. Dollar Senior Pastor and CEO World Changers Ministries Atlanta, Georgia vi

3 I have been carrying and reading this devotional all over America and have found it truly wonderful, with great and fresh insights into the Word. Some who walk in the high places spiritually find it difficult to minister effectively to the common man, but not so in this case. Rick Renner's approach makes it easy for us all to gain tremendous revelation through his Sparkling Gems From the Greek. Just imagine if one word from God can change our world forever, what can the true revelation of that one word do as we apply it and are impacted by it in our everyday lives? Phil Driscoll Mighty Horn Ministries Chattanooga, Tennessee If you have ever desired a closer relationship with the Lord and wanted to fully understand the meaning and intent behind the scriptures in the Bible, this devotional is for you! Sparkling Gems From the Greek is a powerful devotional by Rick Renner that I believe will not only minister life to you and your everyday circumstances, but will also deepen your hunger for more of God and His awesome Word. Sometimes Greek can be a little intimidating, and for a lot of people it has become just that Greek! But not this book! Rick has a phenomenal understanding of the Greek language. He has compiled his years of study and put it into a daily devotional that is simple and easy for anyone to understand. He takes Greek from the Word of God and seamlessly turns it into a revelation word from God. Some people need only a word from God on Sunday, but this wonderful devotional gives you a word from God every day of your life. I like that! Sparkling Gems From the Greek is a book that I feel is needed in the world we live in today, and I highly recommend it to you. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I believe that you will too! I especially enjoyed the Prayer for Today and the Confession for Today at the close of each day s study. So sit down and relax; you re going to have a great time reading this devotional. It s not just a word from Rick it s a word from God! Rev. Jesse Duplantis Jesse Duplantis Ministries New Orleans, Louisiana Rick Renner has written an insightful and inspiring devotional that will help you win victory one day at a time. Sparkling Gems From the Greek is a great way to begin your day. I heartily recommend it. Willie George Senior Pastor Church on the Move vii

4 Sparkling Gems From the Greek is an exciting new approach that marries a faith-filled devotional with bite-sized morsels of Greek word studies. I highly recommend Sparkling Gems From the Greek. The daily devotions will exhort you, teach you, and bless you. Rev. Kenneth Hagin, Jr. Pastor, RHEMA Bible Church Executive Vice President Kenneth Hagin Ministries I have known Rick Renner for years and have watched as God rewarded his faithfulness by repeatedly promoting him. I think of Rick as the apostle to Russia for our day. I ve had a peek at his new book, Sparkling Gems From the Greek, and this is Rick as I love to hear him mining practical, life-changing revelations from his exhaustive study of the Greek language. I look forward to discovering Rick s Gems on a daily basis. This is an important book, a treasure! I can t wait to get my copy and you must have one too! Marilyn Hickey International Bible Teacher Marilyn Hickey Ministries Denver, Colorado Rick Renner has done it again! He has written a book that is so fascinating and so intriguing that you can t wait to get to the next page. It is a daily devotional, but I don t know anyone who is going to be content to read just one day at a time. The urge is to get to day 365 as fast as you can! Rick Renner is the only person we know of who can expound on the Greek and yet make it simple enough for anyone to understand it. This is a precious gift for any person s home library. A diamond sparkles more brightly that any other gem, and this book is really a diamond! Charles and Frances Hunter Hunter Ministries Kingwood, Texas This devotional is totally awesome and a wonderful resource for those of us who do not know how to read Greek. The ability the Lord has given Rick to explain the Greek words in such a colorful, easy-to-understand, easy-to-apply manner is a gift from God to the Body of Christ. Sparkling Gems From the Greek is definitely a must for every minister s library! Dr. Jim Kaseman President, Jim Kaseman Ministries Association of Faith Churches and Ministers Branson, Missouri viii

5 The breadth of the subject matter in this book sets it apart from the traditional devotional. From peace to preparing for battle, from dealing with the devil to preparing for success and meditating on the love God has for us, Rick s book is truly filled with Sparkling Gems, just as the title indicates. The book is not only a tremendous learning tool but a daily practical guide to living life as God intended and in a way that is consistent with His principles. You will find great study subjects to help you grow, as well as daily confessions and very practical daily living suggestions to guide you. No person interested in walking a daily walk with God should be without this book. Mike King Attorney Winters, King & Associates Rick Renner is real, radical, and anointed and so are his books. They are easy to read and full of the truth that makes you free especially this one! It will change your life! Mylon LeFevre Musician, Evangelist Fort Worth, Texas Rick Renner is brilliant and anointed. His ability to translate from the Greek provides a richer understanding of the scriptures. Like other precious stones, the gems Rick mines and shares with us have facets that reflect the Light in ways we perhaps have not seen before. Sparkling Gems From the Greek is a devotional that will take you deeper in your walk with God. Prepare yourself to partake of the rich treasury of God s Word through Rick s treasure hunt! Joyce Meyer Joyce Meyer Ministries Fenton, Missouri Rick Renner is not only one of the most outstanding apostles of today, but he is also one of the most sound biblical teachers in the Body of Christ. His books and teaching ministry have been an inspiration to me and thousands of others like me. I believe that you will find a Sparkling Gem for every day of the year in his daily devotional. I highly recommend this book and believe that it is one of the best daily devotionals today! Pastor Ray McCauley Pastor, RHEMA Bible Church Johannesburg, South Africa ix

6 Rick Renner has written a daily devotional with more than 1,000 Greek word studies that will enrich your walk with God. It is filled with information that every believer will benefit from, and I highly recommend it! What a great way to start your day! Pat Robertson Founder/President, CBN Regent University Virginia Beach, Virginia Wow! Sparkling Gems From the Greek is the most comprehensive devotional study of substance available to the Body of Christ today. Rick Renner continues to help us remain accurate in our pursuit of the Master. I not only highly recommend it I also teach it! Robb Thompson Senior Pastor Family Harvest Church President Family Harvest International Tinley Park, Illinois In Sparkling Gems From the Greek, each new day in your life will be filled with exciting insight from the Greek that makes the Bible come alive in a new way. I believe this devotional is not only a great book, but truly a must for any Christian seeking insight into Scripture and wanting to grow spiritually. Dr. Duane Vanderklok Senior Pastor Resurrection Life Church Grandville, Michigan Sparkling Gems From the Greek is one of the finest devotional and inspirational works ever written. God Almighty has breathed His anointing upon these pages to heal and to deliver hope and intimacy to His people. This inspired work is so needed for this generation. It is my personal recommendation to every believer who desires to meet with God in a personal way. Bob Weiner Weiner Ministries International Gainesville, Florida x

7 Rick Renner has created a masterpiece. The rich nuances of each Greek word make this devotional a book that affords the reader the opportunity to grow closer to God in every area of life. It will increase your consecration and your faith; it will help you to tap into God s divine guidance system and to be transformed by His power. It will be well worth it to invest in Sparkling Gems From the Greek. Dr. Douglas J. Wingate President Life Christian University Tampa, Florida Just as an attorney uses the laws of the land to counsel and represent a client, Rick Renner has masterfully used his knowledge of God s Law to create this sparkling collection of daily devotions to counsel and encourage the reader. Sparkling Gems From the Greek will challenge you, teach you, rebuke you, and comfort you. Pick it up, open it, read it, apply it! Tom Winters Attorney Winters, King & Associates Rick s new devotional Sparkling Gems From the Greek is the best way I know of to begin each day with the Lord. It gives you both a thought and a scripture on which to base your meditation. I believe this book is also great for ministers, adult class teachers, and Bible teachers because it provides a great foundation for sermons and lessons. I plan on using many of the Gems in my own sermons. If you are like me, you can use all the help you can get! Thanks, Rick, for making this new book available. Bob Yandian Pastor, Grace Fellowship xi
