Inductive study compares related Bible texts in order to let the Bible interpret itself, rather than approaching Scripture with predetermined notions of what it will say. Dr. Trainas Methodical Bible Study was not intended to be the last word in inductive Bible study; but since its first publication in 1952, it has become a foundational text in this field. Christian colleges and seminaries have made it required reading for beginning Bible students, while many churches have used it for their lay Bible study groups. Dr. Traina summarizes its success in this comment: "If the truths of the Bible already resided in man, there would be no need for the Bible and this manual would be superfluous. But the fact is the Bible is an objective body of literature which exists because man needs to know certain truths which he himself cannot know. There are two main approaches open to the Bible student. One is deduction, which begins with generalizations and moves for their support to the particulars. By its very nature deduction tends to be subjective and prejudicial. Its opposite, induction, is objective and impartial; for it demands that one first examine the particulars of the Scriptures and that ones conclusions be based on those particulars. Such an approach is sound because, being objective, it corresponds to the objective nature of the Scriptures." This book fills the need for a simple, practical textbook in hermeneutics. It encourages the serious Bible student to practice the best kind of hermeneutic, which allows the Word of God to speak for itself.

Paige-Patric Samuels5 Stars Out Of 5April 24, 2010Paige-Patric SamuelsThis is the crem della crem of inductive Bible studies. Teachers of the sacred Scripture should not leave home without it. It is detailed and and user frendly. This has been used by myslf to help mystudent in both their homoletic class and in their engaging in spiritual formation.
Ajith Fernando5 Stars Out Of 5November 2, 2007Ajith FernandoThis is the classic treatment of inductive Bible study. I learned inductive study using this book and what I learned I use everyday. I yearn to see inductive study of the Scriptures becoming part and parcel of every Christian's life. For a comprehensive introduction to inductive study Traina's book is without peer.
