Synopsis:

Do you feel guilty about not enjoying personal Bible study? Ever wonder how some people can percolate with enthusiasm over the same passages that leaves you unmoved? Father and son authors Howard and Bill Hendricks believe practicing effective inductive Bible study methods can make the difference. After taking Howard's course at Dallas Theological Seminary, Chuck Swindoll said, "What a difference it would make if all God's people could get hold of the techniques and principles necessary for the cultivation of their own spiritual nourishment."
