Baker Academic Inductive Bible Study: A Comprehensive Guide to the Practice of Hermeneutics

Inductive Bible Study: A Comprehensive Guide to the Practice of Hermeneutics introduces the practice of inductive Bible study to a new generation of students, pastors, and church leaders. The authors, two seasoned educator-scholars with over sixty combined years of experience in the classroom, offer guidance on adopting an inductive posture and provide step-by-step instructions to guide interested readers through the process of Bible study development.

But this book is more than a mere "how-to" guide, it also discusses the theoretical foundations and theories that underwrite the skills it seeks to impart to its readers, and those theories which provide a challenge to the methods presented by Bauer and Traina.

Readers should, therefore, be ready to engage in discussion about the merits of various interpretive methods while also learning the skills that enable interpreters to engage with the biblical text responsibly.

To this end, Inductive Bible Study offers a holistic and integrated approach to the study of the Bible, showing how readers can bring together the various facets and methods of biblical study to arrive at original, penetrating, well-grounded interpretation and contemporary application. The process presented incorporates various methods of biblical study to help readers hear the message of the Bible on its own terms.

The book includes a sustained example of the entire process, using 2 Timothy 3:16-17, and many examples of specific aspects or tasks of biblical study taken from passages throughout the biblical canon. It will benefit professors and students in courses on Bible study methods, interpretation, and hermeneutics as well as pastors, Bible teachers at all levels, and church leaders. Indeed, this book is a rich resource for the church as a whole and makes a wonderful addition for church libraries as well.

I've enjoyed this book, haven't finished it yet but so far I'm glad I purchased it. I will give a more thorough review when I'm done.
