A Treasure Trove of Truth

Sparkling Gems from the Greek, Volume 2 is the result of thousands of hours of both prayer and study. Author Rick Renner is a highly-respected leader and teacher who loves and has extensive knowledge of the Greek New Testament.

Building on Sparkling Gems from the Greek, which sold more than 100,000 copies in print, this new volume includes what Renner believes is his strongest teaching and best writing to date.

In Volume 2, Renner offers a masterful blend of poignant personal memories, intriguing historical perspective, and penetrating insights into the believer’s role today. Woven throughout these daily “gems,” Renner shares more than 1,000 unique Greek word studies with teaching that will challenge you to adjust your actions, realign your attitudes, and act on the practical applications of truth that are pertinent to your own walk with God. Through it all, Rick guides you into a deeper understanding of God’s Word to strengthen your faith and reignite fresh passion to pursue God’s plan for your life.

Both volumes are designed as daily devotionals but can be used as a Greek reference tool for your own personal study or sermon creation. In Wordsearch, you can use these volumes to take time to focus on your relationship with God before starting your ministry work and study.
Each day includes a prayer, confession, and questions for you to consider throughout the rest of the day. You’ll find challenges, reassurance, comfort, and reminders of God’s love and healing every day of the year.

Until October 3 you can add both of these volumes to your Wordsearch library for $14.95 each. Learn more here.

A Commentary Designed for Pastors

“Teach the Text is the kind of commentary I have wanted for a long time. It deals with the kinds of questions that busy pastors have to ask and answer in order to preach the Scriptures every week. I commend it to those of you who are in that kind of ministry.”—Haddon Robinson, Harold John Ockenga Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

After carefully researching the needs of pastors who teach the Bible on a weekly basis, the creators of Teach the Text Commentary Series realized the need for a commentary that utilizes the best of biblical scholarship but also presents the material in a clear, concise, attractive, and user-friendly format.

Teach the Text Commentary Series meets that need by providing pastors and teachers with easy access to the information you need to preach or teach effectively. The biblical text is broken out into “preaching units” that include three different sections: Understanding the Text, Teaching the Text, and Illustrating the Text. In Wordsearch, you can easily navigate to each of these sections from the Table of Contents.

Follow Preaching from the Apostles to Today

What an incredible work. I was so impressed by the thoughtfulness and care the editors put into their selections. If you want to be blessed by, and mentored by, some of the most anointed teachers in history, this great work is where to begin! I’m excited to add it to my library and hope every serious student of God’s word will do the same.” – J.D. Greear, The Summit Church

A Legacy of Preaching: Apostles to the Present Day explores the history and development of preaching through a biographical and theological examination of its most important preachers. Instead of teaching the history of preaching from the perspective of movements and eras, each contributor tells the story of a particular preacher in history, allowing these preachers from the past to come alive and instruct us through their lives, theologies, and methods of preaching.
