Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet. The story takes place in France, Italy, and islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of the era of the Bourbon Restoration through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. It begins just before the Hundred Days period when Napoleon returned to power after his exile. The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book, an adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness.

In , Rick and his family moved to what is now the former Soviet Union. Today he is the senior pastor of the Moscow Good News Church; the founder and director of the Good News Association of Pastors and Churches, with a membership of more than churches; and the founder of Media Mir, the first Christian television network in the former USSR that today broadcasts the Gospel to a potential audience of million people.
Rick s wife and lifelong ministry partner, Denise, and their three sons Paul, Philip, and Joel lead this amazing work with the help of their committed leadership team. Rick and Denise, along with their sons and families, all reside in Moscow. I love it because it has the devotional, a prayer that you can pray, a confession that you can say, and questions to ask yourself.
Pastor Renner breaks things down for you and shows you how to apply biblical principles to your everyday life. This devotional has challenged me personally to keep living for God and reach to that next level in God.
It is written by a man who has a deep knowledge of Greek and who knows God intimately, and his book reveals this. The book is divided into daily readings, each one being just the right length, not too short which most are and not too long. The author goes into great detail as he expands the meaning of the Greek words used in the scriptures, and also includes personal anecdotes which are so interesting and lots of encouragement for the reader which we all need.
At the conclusion of the word study are two additional sections: the first is a prayer the reader can pray that relates to the word study for the day, and the second is a declaration of faith relating to the study. I highly recommend it!!! Renner does an outstanding job of making the most out of my morning prayer time and also keeps me on track regarding my own personal growth.
This is definitely a must read for those who are looking to increase their sensitivity to the Holy Spirit, and those who have a sincere desire to grow into the fullness of their God given purpose.
