               As King Solomon aptly observed, “…of making many books there is no end; and much
               study is a weariness of the flesh.” (Ecclesiastes 12:12)  And yet there is much value in
               the careful, systematic study of God’s Word.  The Apostle Paul commanded Timothy to,
               “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be
               ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)  The following bibliography
               is not an exhaustive list nor is it intended as an “approved” list.  It is offered merely as a
               beginning point of reference and as a means of encouragement to candidates for
               Discerner, Licensed Minister, Commissioned Minister, or Ordained Minister status.
               Candidates are free to utilize any, all, or alternate resources as they see fit and as their
               particular ministry interests may require.
