My minister wants us to study God's word for ourselves not taking just taking (his) the minister's preaching as infallible but investigating his preaching to ensure that he is speaking God's word. The minister lets us know the resources he uses and shows us how to us it.
I love doing Precept Bible Studies by Kay Arthur. This book helps me to determine the Greek tense, mood, and voice of the verbs in the New Testament. It has been a big help in understanding the meaning of Scripture when you learn certain ways in which words are used in the language the Bible was written in.
