Sacred Grammar, a Bible-based grammar text book, presents a unique system of learning to master sentence structure by acquainting the struggling writer with the necessary tools for understanding grammatically correct writing using Bible verses. All of the principles of correct usage are presented in Biblical texts, whose translators are mindful of subtle choices. This fascinating process convinces the new writer that careful, conscious selection of structure and meaning create clear, interesting writing. Dr. James Beaty illustrates the significance of syntax and word choice in select verses while also deconstructing the sentences themselves. No book is more widely, seriously studied or widely translated than the Bible, and now, a writing and grammar text that engages the student in a painless, even pleasant reading and writing experience dramatizes the importance of the right word and appropriate subordination. This book is fun and fascinating to read. Below is the Table of Contents of Sacred Grammar.
