Overview

According to John Adams, an early twentieth-century Scottish scholar, sermon helps are provided in Scripture with the study of language accents.. The John Adams Hebrew Studies Collection (3 Vols.) introduces the reader to accents and demonstrates how to make the most of them in sermon and Bible teaching preparation. Adams shows how a familiarity with accents is essential to understanding context of Scripture passages, thus making more meaning for one’s audience.
