"A very valuable guide for any student learning or relearning Greek"

Learning Greek is a difficult task, and the payoff may not be readily apparent. To demonstrate the insight that knowing Greek grammar can bring, Benjamin Merkle summarizes thirty-five key Greek grammatical issues and their significance for interpreting the New Testament.

"The book is aptly titled: readers are indeed treated to exegetical gems from the Greek text. Merkle also provides a concise review of Greek grammar as he discusses particular biblical texts. This is a most helpful way to keep up or review one's Greek and to learn more about the biblical text at the same time."
--Thomas R. Schreiner, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Merkle is passionate about helping people make progress in their study of the Greek New Testament, and nothing shows that better than this book. The author provides a treasure chest for current students, and those who want to refresh their Greek, by focusing on points of syntax and related issues while examining sample passages. The discussion is clear and provides solid, even profound help in Greek to benefit all readers of this work. Highly recommended!"
--S. M. Baugh, Westminster Seminary California

"Don't be misled by the title. These are not random gems rolling around loosely in a jewelry box drawer. These brilliant gems have been carefully selected, ordered, and strung on a gold chain. Merkle thoroughly treats exegetically significant examples of the major grammatical categories covered in biblical Greek, following the order in which most students learn them. His explanations are clear, and his exegesis is insightful. This book is a very valuable guide for any student learning or relearning Greek."
--Charles L. Quarles, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
