In this work, Adams argues for the use of studies of accents in sermon preparation and Bible teaching. He provides an introduction to how accents work in Scripture, and then describes the various kinds used throughout the Bible. He maintains that knowing the original wording and style illuminates overall meaning of the text, guiding the preacher and Bible teacher in creating sermons and lesson plans. This is an invaluable introduction and overview to Scriptural accents, perfect for students, pastors, and teachers.
