Essential Virtues: Marks of the Christ-Centered Life

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.

Essential Virtues: Marks of the Christ-Centered Life

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential Virtues is an excellent addition to my library! I found Essential Virtues to be an excellent book on Christian growth and change. While it is written in an easy to understand style, it is very well researched and integrated. The chapter topics flow easily from one to the next and additional information via footnotes and appendices are a great source for further study. Dr. Berg has a way of "brushing aside" all the clutter and getting to the biblical point of it all. I also like the positive tone of this book and the constant encouragement to apply these truths to my life. I highly recommend it. July 14, 2014
