Quieting a Noisy Soul
Summer Bible Course
Sunday Afternoon at 2:00 PM
“Sounds of guilt, anxiety, anger, despair, addictions, and even entertainment can generate overwhelming noise in our souls. The quiet rest and joy promised by the Lord Jesus can seem illusive, and almost impossible. Yet His words still beckon to us:
“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.”
His call extends even to those experiencing panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, and compulsive behaviors as well as those practicing more overtly destructive behaviors such as anorexia, bulimia, addiction, and self-mutilation. No human problem of the soul is too complicated and no personal agony is too overwhelming for the Master.”

More about Jim Berg
Growing up in South Dakota, Jim Berg spent countless hours side by side with his dad, tinkering on the family Volkswagens and taking care of the farm. Working with machinery taught Jim to troubleshoot, an ability he has since put to use in counseling. He draws many of his examples and illustrations from his experiences growing up in a working-class home. Jim credits restaurant work during his high school years with teaching him “people skills,” and college as being the place where God got hold of his heart, and “blended” all of his growing up experiences to give him the ministry he has now. Today, one wife, three daughters, three sons-in-law, several grandchildren, thousands of students, and a host of readers and listeners later, Jim Berg finds a broad audience with which to share the important spiritual truths the Lord has taught him.
Berg received his undergraduate degree in Bible in 1974, and his MA degree in theology in 1976 from Bob Jones University. He has an honorary doctor of divinity degree from Tabernacle Baptist Theological Seminary. He served as dean of students at BJU from 1981 to 2010. Today he teaches in the BJU Seminary and tinkers on his old Volkswagen, Willie.
