Induction and Deduction with Reference to Inspiration by Dr. Roger Nicole

Dr. Nicole compares inductive and deductive Bible study and discusses the need for balance and perspective:

Deductive reasoning starts with a principle and/or statement, and analyses its implications (in these terms, to ascertain the meaning of a statement involves primarily deductive activity).

Induction starts with a number of concrete facts or data of observation, and seeks to correlate them in terms of a common principle.
