BJU Press Description:
In God Is More Than Enough, Jim Berg offers practical wisdom for overcoming the stresses of life and finding God’s peace. This book is for Christians who have reached the end of their own strength and are ready to take God’s hand.

This book is adapted from the Quieting a Noisy Soul Counseling Program.
BJU Press Description:
Essential Virtues by Jim Berg draws from the principles of 2 Peter 1 to explore the marks of the Christian life. Peter lists the virtues of a Christlike believer: knowledge, self-control, endurance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love. As we understand the meaning and importance of these core virtues, we can learn to cultivate these qualities while avoiding worldliness, rebellion, and spiritual apathy. Berg’s clear application encourages personal Bible study that will result in true biblical maturity. Essential Virtues includes study-guide questions for personal reflection.
When Jim saw his children on the brink of adulthood, he was burdened to provide them with a biblically sound, realistic, and practical handbook for godly Christian living. Changed into His Image is the result of that mission to help them and others maintain their day-to-day walk with the Lord. Now in its fifth printing since its debut in 1999, Changed into His Image offers basic training in Christian growth and guidance in recognizing and overcoming the habits that commonly hinder spiritual progress. Also available in Spanish, Portuguese, German, Russian, and Chinese.
Created for His Glory is Jim’s second work on discipleship. It’s a dynamic tool for pastors, Christian educators, parents, or any other Christian dedicated to the ministry of discipleship and personally in search of greater spiritual fitness. Dr. Berg takes an enthusiastic look at the fullness of joy and the victorious life available to every Christian who comes to a clearer understanding of God’s purpose in redemption. He also takes a probing look at pitfalls and misconceptions that commonly weaken believers.
Jim Berg presents four truths to apply when a person faces a crisis. These truths act as “spiritual CPR” to stabilize Christians or those they are helping in the event of sudden calamity. Dedicated to those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001, When Trouble Comes contains truths that can help anyone through the toughest times.
This tiny treasure offers a wealth of simple explanations for sometimes complex topics such as resisting temptation, witnessing, finding God’s will for your life, and personal Bible study. It’s a valuable handbook for new believers, who will find it a helpful tool for spiritual growth, and for seekers, who will find answers to their most basic questions about what it means to believe and how to come to Christ. It is also helpful for seasoned believers, who will want to keep it on hand for personal work and to give away. Available in French and Spanish.
