I was introduced to Jen Wilkin through her excellent book Women of the Word, which is a wonderful resource for learning to dig into the Scriptures and study them well. I am currently going through her study on the book of Judges and finding it to be a wonderful way to grow in understanding of the Old Testament.
Jen's new book, None Like Him, continues to display her passion for God and His word. I found this book to be an edifying read that encourages me to worship God for who He is.
In None Like Him, Jen writes about ten attributes of God that are exclusive to Him and do not apply to humans. She helps the reader to understand the attribute, why it is a good and essential part of God, and why we are not defined by that attribute. She writes, "I want us to consider the majesty of a limitless God. I want us to meditate on his perfections...And along the way, I want us to stare down our tendency to ask others and even ourselves to be what only God is."
Each chapter ends with summary questions, verses for further study, and encouragement about how to pray through what was discussed in the chapter. The inclusion of these study aids makes this book a good choice for a small discussion group.
Jen's love of Scripture is evident throughout the book and inspires the reader to draw near to God. She encourages, "Read it (Scripture) with new eyes, eyes that hunger for a loftier vision of who he is...Behold there your Maker, fearful and wonderful. Lift us your eyes."
I was blessed by this book and recommend it highly.
I received a copy of this book from Crossway in exchange for an honest review.
