My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A short, concise book on the inductive Bible study method – observation, interpretation and application (called OIA throughout the book). The author walks through each step, giving examples and questions to ponder to learn this method of Bible study.
While I was already familiar with this Bible study method, this is a good book explaining each step and making it practical for those who struggle with studying the Bible. The example he used throughout the book was Genesis 1 and I’m not completely sure I agree with his conclusions, but the explanations were clear and easy to understand. This is a great book for those who struggle with Bible study and need practical help to dig further into the Scriptures. Easy to read and to-the-point, this book will help make Bible study come alive.
“In short, we study the Bible to know Jesus and to help others know him.”
“…before we can see what the text means, we must observe what it says.”
“Don’t use minor details to make the text say what you want it to say. Don’t build a theology from one unclear verse.”

*I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for my review.
