The importance of the spoken and written word in Christian culture cannot be overestimated. In this English grammar
guide, Nancy Wilson surveys the major concepts in English grammar for beginners at the late elementary and junior high
level (even adults seeking a brush-up). Wilson avoids common, contrived sentences that serve merely to illustrate her
point; instead, she uses many selections from Scripture and from great English writers which help to instruct the
student through their content, style, and structure. In addition to a helpful format that highlights key definitions,
punctuation issues, and important concepts, short historical sidebars tell the facinating story of the development of
English. She continues the traditional and challenging exercise of sentence diagramming, which trains students to
quickly ananlyze the structure of any given sentence. The grammatical explanations, the logic of diagrams, and the
rhetoric of her examples blend with complementary emphases to create a helpful classical and Christian text.
