Therefore, a proper use of language, both spoken and written, must be of concern especially for the person training for Christian service. Secondarily, the examples used in this text provide a Christ-centered basis for interacting with the material. Major grammar areas that relate to good writing are the focus of the opening chapters with each chapter having exercises for the student to complete.
