Simply put, studying the Bible inductively allows you to see for yourself what God says in Scripture.
If all of the Bible studies you’ve done have been based on either questions from a Bible study leader or an author of a Bible study book, then you owe it to yourself to learn how to study the Bible independently . . . firsthand.
You’ll find that discovering God’s truth from Scripture on your own with the illumination of the Holy Spirit will excite you to want to know more!
We’re here to help you get started . . .
How do you learn best?
Learn by READING
If you’re a VISUAL learner, you learn best by reading or seeing pictures.

Learn by HEARING
If you’re an AUDITORY learner, you learn best by hearing and listening. You need to hear things–not just see things–in order to learn well.
So consider WATCHING VIDEOS and WEBINARS that show you how you can study the Bible inductively. Our resource, Unlock the Bible Student in You, does just that.
Learn by DOING
If you’re a TACTILE learner, you learn best by touching and doing.
