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 on bible study contain principles ("observe intimately", etc). Torrey just cuts to the chase and serves up a recipe for how to move through a study. It's almost like Robert Traina's old book, Methodical Bible Study, in pamphlet form.
In a strange inconsistency, Torrey recommends that the beginner choose 1 Thessalonians for his first study, and specifically cautions against 1 Peter, explaining that it contains some significantly difficult texts. Then Torrey goes ahead and uses 1 Peter as his model for the rest of the chapter.
The remainder of Torrey's book is fairly so-so. Chapter 3 deals with topical study, and it's pretty good. By the end of this chapter Torrey has shot his wad; there's not much left. The remaining chapters are all three and four pages long, and are of limited value.
Having said that, this is a good little purchase for someone interested in learning how to study their Bible more carefully. I'd read just chapter one and two, and leave the rest. Chapter two alone is worth the price of the book.
It demystifies the study of Scriptures so that ordinary Christians and those who are still "babes in Christ" can be confident in plumbing the depths of the Bible. The result is not for Christians to be experts, but for them to taste the sweetness of God's Word, desire it more than their necessary food, meaningfully engage with it and hold it forth as the Word of Life.
