Understanding and Applying the Bible
by J. Robertson McQuilkin
This book is a more academic look at inductive Bible study, but very helpful and understandable.
Dr. McQuilkin has several additional features not found in other books on inductive study including chapters on the dangers of Natural, Supernatural, Dogmatic, and Existentialist tendencies in Bible study. He contrasts these other methods with the “Historical Grammatical method” he advocates.
Dr. McQuilkin discusses context and the importance of discovering the author’s intended meaning in our Bible study, and also describes a very helpful method for word study in addition to an introduction to structuring techniques.
