I was recently introduced to the work of Jen Wilkin by our Women’s Bible Study group at church with her Study of Hebrews. Unfortunately, I fell behind, but I have been working on it at home, and I just love the way it’s presented and how she encourages us to study God’s Word. When I was given the opportunity to review the Jen Wilkin book None Like Him: 10 Ways God is Different From Us (and Why That’s a Good Thing).

In None Like Him Jen Wilkin she shares how God is self-existent, self-sufficient, immutable, eternal, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, infinite, sovereign, and incomprehensible. We are not, of course, and she goes into detail about each of these characteristics and, of course, relates personal stories and scriptural reference. I knew right from the Introduction on Becoming a God-Fearing Woman this book would be a huge blessing – not just for me, but for any woman who reads it.
What I found really makes this book unique is it’s not just a book you read through (although just the text alone is a blessing). She encourages us to dig deeper. She provides verses for meditation, questions for reflection, and a prayer. I have particularly found the questions helpful because, I admit, I often read through things quickly and then realize I didn’t actually take in everything I just read. With the questions, I’m challenged to really dig in to the meaning of the chapter – not just the words.
Overall, I am so glad I had the chance to review this Jen Wilkin book. I love the way it presented and encourages us to dig deep in the meaning. It not only helped me realize who God is, but also why I’m not those things, and why I don’t have to be. I think the Conclusion “Fearful and Wonderful” really helps bring it all together. We need to embrace our limits in light of our limitless God.
None Like Him: 10 Ways God is Different from Us (and Why That’s a Good Thing) can be purchased on Amazon. The paperback book is beautiful, and it’s available for Kindle as well.
