Folks who want to know more about the Bible and improve their English can do both through a unique study that uses sentence diagramming to unlock biblical understanding.

A retired English teacher, Shirley Forsen of Raymore developed Diagramming the Scripture because she believes the art of sentence diagramming is dying. “It’s needed, basic and foundational … like phonics and spelling,” she said.

That need, she thinks, “is why the Lord wanted me to do this.”

“Homeschoolers do it [diagramming] all the time. [The book] fulfills a need that doesn’t seem to be fulfilled in public schools,” she added.
