Product Description

Why another book on inductive Bible study? Since Robert Traina's Methodical Bible Study was published in 1952, dozens of books, ranging from popular-level works to academic textbooks, have presented a methodical, inductive approach to the study of Scriptures. This inductive Bible study is a practical, relevant, and time-tested approach to interpreting Scripture. Yet as evangelical scholarship of the Bible yields greater insight to the field of hermeneutics, there's an ever-present need to incorporate those advances into a usable, applied guide for the study of the Bible.

Fuhr and Köstenberger's Inductive Bible Study incorporates insights from contemporary evangelical hermeneutics into an approachable, step-by-step process moving from observation through interpretation and on to the application of God's Word. Each step is viewed through the lenses of the hermeneutical triad, exploring the historical, literary, and theological elements that impact how one observes, interprets, and applies the Bible. Chapter by chapter, Inductive Bible Study explores a broad representation of biblical texts as it illustrates the steps of inductive methodology across the literary landscape of Scripture. Helpful features of the text include:

  • Asking the right questions of the text
  • Comparing translations
  • Considering various facets of context
  • The study of words and phrases
  • Basic discourse analysis
  • The role of the Holy Spirit in approaching Scripture
  • Determining legitimacy in application and
  • Doing theology as the flow of inductive Bible study

Fuhr and Köstenberger offer a hermeneutically sensitive, step-by-step approach to inductive Bible study that will bring insight and practical benefit to many who endeavor to know God through the depths and riches of his Word, the Bible. Inductive Bible Study is an ideal textbook for courses in biblical interpretation, and for anyone who desires to better understand and teach Scripture.
