Need a method to get a method?

Ziony Zevit in Religions of Ancient Israel writes,

In history writing of any kind, the choice of method is fundamental, because to a large degree it determines the outcome of the inquiry. Where you arrive depends not only upon where you think you’re going, but also upon how you decide to get there. (page 8)

 

But how do you decide on method? Or, how do you decide on … how you decide to get there? What method will you use to find the correct method? Where does the inquiry really begin?
