C.H. Cobb
Torrey’s little book on Bible study is composed of eight chapters of good, practical suggestions. He organizes the bulk of the material into particular approaches to study, such as topical, biographical, typological, etc.

The strongest (and longest) chapter is that on individual book study, chapter 2. It contains a step-by-step how-to methodology to approach a book study. This is where Torrey’s little book shines. Most of the other introductory texts contain principles (“observe intimately”, etc)
Excellent little book, but best avoid the RHP Essential Classics edition, as the anonymous editor seems to feel the need to insert his own views at certain points. Only a few comments, so can be ignored, but one in particular completely contradicts what Torrey is saying.
