I have an interesting relationship with reading books about Christian growth. I always want to read more, because I don't read much non-fiction at all, but I'm always leery in the back of my mind about the content of them, in terms of what kind of view the author has of God and the Bible. I was very pleased to read None Like Him, because this is a book I can very readily recommend!

In None Like Him, the author Jen Wilkin explores 10 different ways that God is different from us. I loved this take on exploring God's character, because I know I very often start to feel really good about myself as a Christian and think that I am well on my way to perfection. Well, if you read this book you're going to get a reality check. You're also going to grow in the fear of the Lord, which is always a good thing. In Wilkin's comparisons of God's character and human character, I realized that there were indeed some areas where I had made God more like me in my mind. (I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about.) The good news is that God is very much not like me, and praise Him for that! I think Jen Wilkin has a very Biblical view of God and a right understanding of the Bible. I feel like there may have been one statement that gave me pause, but now I can't even remember what it was so it couldn't have been that bad.) Her reflections of God and our relation to Him was really insightful.

At the end of the chapters there are devotional questions and Scripture passages for reflection and meditation, as well as a guided prayer to close. I listened to this book on audio at work (side note, it's narrated by Wilkin herself) so I wasn't able to engage with those sections, but I'm itching to buy a physical copy so that I can have this wonderful resource in my collection! I definitely see myself coming back to this book often. I also want to pick up her other book, Women of the Word, because I can tell by her passion about the Bible in this book that it will be just as good.

  1. I'm listening to Women Of The Word and have been really impressed with Wilkin too! It's nice to know there are at least some solid Christian women authors out there. I'll have to check out this book too!
