See how being aware of God's purpose for your life can lead you or someone else to restoration.

Reviews - What do customers think about Created for His Glory: God's Purpose for Redeeming Your Life?
Life-changing Mar 12, 2008
This book's stated purpose is to help us find the peace and joy that the Bible describes. I guess Dr. Berg has done a great job, because it was after I read it that I started viewing just about everything with eternal eyes and therefore experiencing what the apostle Paul called in Philippians 4 "the peace of God which surpasses all understanding." Totally life-changing, as is its predecessor, Changed into His Image.
I'm Here for a Reason! Jul 2, 2006
This is the book that God used to begin showing me that He is God, that my relationship with Him can be very intimate, that I am loved by Him because of Who He is and not what I do. I would say that this book was the beginning of much encouragement and catapulted me into tracking my thinking and began my great love of reading great Christian books. Check out the workbook too, it makes you think about what you have read!
The most practical, biblical book on Christian growth avail. Jul 11, 2003
Changed Into His Image (1st book) and Created for His Glory (2nd), by Jim Berg, comprise a pair of books that is HANDS DOWN the most practical work on biblical Christian growth available. Changed Into His Image covers the biblical teaching of sanctification (Christian growth), the frustrations of an idle Christian life, and how a Christian can overcome his old sinful nature through spending time with God. The second book, Created for His Glory is just as phenomenal, and takes the Christian the next step in understanding Christianity as the Creator designed it to be. Both are MUST OWN works for any Christian desiring to grow spiritually according to God's Word. I will sing it's praises 'til my dying day--it's worth its weight in gold. Buy 1 for you and 2 to give away!
