What can a fictional detective teach you about how to study the Bible?

A lot.

You probably would expect Holmes to take the most sophisticated approach to solving mysteries. But, when you read the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes you are actually stuck by the simple and basic approach that he takes. And his approach actually applies directly to studying the Bible.

Eric McKiddie is one of the pastors at College Church in Wheaton, IL. He recently blogged about  10 quotes from Holmes that will equip you to solve mysterious passages of the Bible.

As a Precept Bible study leader you would not agree with everything Eric shares about Sherlock Holmes and Bible study, but his points are interesting and we think some of them might help you look at your inductive Bible study techniques in a different light.

Join David Lawson today as he discusses Eric McKiddie’s 10 Tips on Solving Mysterious Bible Passages from Sherlock Holmes.
