how do we select our products?
First and foremost, our desire is that our materials would encourage people to turn to the Word of God as their authority for living their lives in a way that is spiritually fruitful and pleasing to the Lord.
Some of our resources do this more directly than others, yet all are for the purpose of informing and edifying the body of Christ. Sometimes we offer books by non-Christians that contain research information that we believe is valuable for our readers. In some instances, we make available resources with which we do not agree entirely, yet we believe that the material, overall, is very helpful for the believer. In such cases, we may attach a disclaimer, or we may issue an exhortation for the reader to exercise discernment, i.e., be a “Berean.” Nevertheless, we scrutinize all of our materials from a biblical perspective.
We see our material resources as a ministry in itself, providing edifying media that is not usually available in local Christian bookstores. We are very conscious of our stewardship responsibility and try to make what we offer as economical as possible. We are also thankful to the Lord that the sale of materials is a viable source of provision, in addition to the unsolicited donations of those who are blessed by and who support The Berean Call.
The Berean Call (TBC) has always operated on the belief that God will provide as we seek His face, so we do not make appeals for financial help. Although the ministry operates primaily on donations, these are freewill and not solicited. Through the years, TBC has seen God “do exceeding abundantly above” all that was asked or thought.

We offer all of our our ebooks in several formats. After you add an ebook to your cart and checkout, all available versions of your selected product will be emailed to you!
Books - MOBI format
Kindle books can be viewed on Kindle devices or on just about any other device using the Kindle Reading App.
If you purchase a Kindle (MOBI) book from our website, it will not be automatically added to your Kindle. You must transfer the file to your Kindle by email or another method. Amazon provides instructions here.
It is easiest for you if you purchase Kindle books directly through Amazon, the book will be added to your device automatically.
ePub books can be viewed on IOS and Android devices.
After you purchase a book in ePub format from our store you can download it, then add it to your IOS Device. See Apple's help page here for more information.
After you purchase a book in ePub format from our store you can download it, then add it to your Android Device. You'll need to choose an ePub reader from the Google Play Store.
PDF format books can be viewed on a variety of devices, but you will not be able to resize the text and the reading experience is not nearly as nice as Kindle or ePub formats.
The only advantage to the PDF format is that you can print the pages.
