Many students often face a wall of English grammar building blocks in their first year of Hebrew or Greek language studies. Phillip Miller developed this English grammar book to help students overcome their frustrations. Each lesson is divided into four sections. First, Miller presents an exegesis illustrating English, Hebrew, and Greek grammatical concepts. Next, he offers explanations and examples of English grammar patterns, rules, and concepts. Third, he provides an extension into explanations and examples of Hebrew and Greek grammar concepts. And finally, each section ends with a homework exercise in review. Miller’s English grammar book is designed to be prescriptive (how it should be written) and descriptive (how it was actually written) to assist students learning biblical languages.

“Language can be defined as a set of sounds (spoken language), symbols (written language), and/or gestures (silent language) when put together communicate meaning within a community.” (Page 3)
“this phrase describes or relates to the thought of the entire sentence” (Page 4)
“Being a good communicator means having a good understanding of grammar.” (Page iii)
“Grammar is basically the study of the rules or patterns that govern a particular language. Each language has its own distinct grammar, but all languages have similar grammatical concepts. This book will attempt to show you some of those similarities between English and the Bible languages of Hebrew and Greek.” (Page iii)
“Exegesis refers to drawing out the meaning from the text itself while interpretation refers to the explanation that results from a thorough exegesis. Exegesis is the hard work of getting the meaning out of the text so that you can make a good interpretation of the biblical text.” (Page 21)
