Sentence diagramming unlocks Scripture meaning

Retired English teacher develops new way to study Bible

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.
