Inductive Bible Study

The Inductive Bible Study method is the one that Joe introduced at kinship in May 2007. It's also the method described in the old, two-page handout Mike passed around. Mike's version was from Campus Crusade for Christ and is still available online at the God Squad site and as a PDF document.
