Lamar, James S. - The Inductive Method of Bible Interpretation 1.0
Expository Topics Bible Interpretation Hermeneutics Context Methodology
James Sanford Lamar
9.x - 10.x
This book was published in 1860, describing, defining, and defending the Inductive Method as the proper method of Biblical Interpretation.
The following was written about J.S. Lamar
In 1859, he published a work entitled "The Organon of Scripture; or, the Inductive Method of Biblical Interpretation." This work is written in an easy and graceful style, and is a very creditable production for one so young to write. If, however, he had spent several more years in perfecting it, the work would, doubtless, have been of much greater value. As it is, it is worthy of careful study, and certainly encourages us to hope that the author will not let his pen remain idle.
Brother Lamar has a beautiful mind. He is incapable of any thing uncouth or vulgar. His thoughts are chaste and fresh, and always expressed in a polished, forcible style. He is a hard student, but reads a very select library. He seeks for perfection in every thing, and, consequently, his literary labors are always carefully performed.
As a speaker, he is clear, pointed, earnest, and impressive. He is very choice in his selection of words, and generally says the right thing in the right way.
