In His Image: 10 Ways God Calls Us to Reflect His Character Reviews
"What good is it for me to choose the right home or spouse if I'm still eaten up with covetousness? What does it profit me to make the right choice if I'm still the wrong person? A lost person can make 'good choices'. But only a person indwelt by the Holy Spirit can make a good choice for the purpose of glorifying God."In His Image tries to help those who are always questioning about what is God's will in their life. The author states that instead of asking "What should I do next?", we need to s ...more
In His Image is the companion/sequel book to Jen Wilkin’s None Like Him, one of my favorite reads last year. While None Like Him covered the attributes of God that are solely His (and applying them to ourselves results in sin), In His Image is all about His communicable characteristics: holy, loving, good, just, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful and wise. These are the traits we are to pursue after.
As expected, Ms. Wilkin did not disappoint. From the beginning, she engages both my ...more
This is the best book I’ve read in a long time. The goal of the book is to know God and allow him to make us more like Him. Wilkin gently but firmly guides the reader to know more about Gods character and challenges us to desire to reflect that character. Very practical. The application side of the book is fabulous. Wilkin has such a great way of saying it like it is but in a loving way. EVERYTHING is backed by scripture. This is not fluff. It is deep and meaty. I read it slowly so I could chew ...more
We are to be Christlike but what does that mean? Wilkin helps readers understand that this goes beyond the “What should I do?” to “Who should I be?” She reminds us that we can know God's will for our character and godly character will produce godly action.
I like that Wilkin distinguishes the character traits God alone can have, such as his omnipresence and omniscience. What she writes about in this book are the traits we are to exhibit. We are to bear the image of God, not become God. (Loc 139/ ...more
I had the joy of reading "In His Image" by Jen Wilkin (available in paperback May 31st, available on Kindle now). Just a short commendation on the author: I would describe her writing as rich, simple, straight-forward, appropriately fun, relevant, relatable, not fluffy, and not watered-down. She has the gift of getting heavy, deep, important truths across in a way that won't make your brain explode. She organizes her thoughts and communicates in a way that makes her books very readable. This boo ...more
I really enjoyed this book and found it very helpful. I used it each day in my quiet time and I feel that I have learnt a lot about God and about being more like Him. I have already found myself changing my behaviour because of the book and my reflections on my learning.
I love the illustrations used, many of which resonated with me, and The authors writing style is easy to read, funny, but also challenging. I really liked the format of having the verses, questions and prayer at the end ...more
First sentence: If you’ve ever said, “I just want to know God’s will for my life,” this book is for you.
Premise/plot: In His Image isn't your typical what-is-God's-will-for-my-life 'self-help' book. I'm tempted to put in the exclamation: far from it! Wilkin writes:
God is always more concerned with the decision-maker than he is with the decision itself... For the believer wanting to know God’s will for her life, the first question to pose is not “What should I do?” but “Who should I be?” The Bibl ...more
Wilken's book came at such a needed time in my life, when I was questioning His will for various aspects of my life. Wilken rightly points out the way to know this is by knowing Him and pursing God's communicable attributes in our lives.
"Without meaning to, we can begin to regard our relationship with God primarily as a means toward better decision-making. We can slip into a conception of God as a Dear Abby, a benevolent advice columnist who fields our toughest questions about relationships and ...more
