"Who but Jim Beaty would have thought to juxtapose "grammar" and "sacred"? The "grammar" part is down and dirty . . . verbs, nouns, adjectives, and all the rest of that. The "sacred" part is the Bible and its capacity for good grammar as a means of announcing the "good news." Thanks be to God for this book from a passionate teacher who knows the revelatory power of a well-wrought utterance." -- Walter Brueggemann, PhD, Columbia Theological Seminary
Sacred Grammar presents a unique system of learning to master sentence structure by first acquainting the struggling writer with the necessary tools for understanding Biblical writing. 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. The fearful novice will not only learn.
