A.T. Robertson's little book _The Minister and His Greek New Testament_
provides some strong encouragement for ministers (and, I think, others) to
learn NT Greek. When I was a young Bible college student I found chapter nine
(which details how John Brown of Haddington learned Greek without any
instruction) to be particularly stirring.
