Commentary by David Cox
This work basically goes over the basics of how to study the Bible, looking at different methods. In general this is very profitable for new believers, but also for every Christian to review periodically. While I don’t recommend Anglican authors as a general rule, the principles laid out in this work are the same principles that I have seen in a dozen or more similar works by all kinds of theologians.
