Right now my three boys are playing with water guns in the backyard, and my girls are working on their summer reading for the library’s reading challenge. Oh summer, how I love thee!! And I am sitting down with my Bible and excellent new book, None Like Him by Jen Wilkin. Let me tell you about it, because I think you’ll love it to! (P.S. We’re giving away 1 copy, too! Keep reading!)
A few days ago, a friend stopped by just to drop off this book. We had had a conversation awhile back about what it means to fear God. This is something that I struggle with, because I often feel like I don’t really understand him. But the fear of the Lord is so important!
Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
My friend remembered this conversation and knew this was just the book I needed to read. None Like Him, 10 Ways God is Different From Us, is a book about God. It’s about how God is God. It’s about how we are not God. These are subjects that I need to be reminded of daily.
In each chapter, Wilkin examines a different attribute of God, including some that I’ve thought about before such as Omniscience (infinite knowledge) and omnipresence (infinite place). But she also introduces other qualities of God that are new to me. I really enjoyed reading about how God is self-sufficient (he doesn’t need a thing- how restful!), and how God is incomprehensible (we can never really understand everything about him).
At the end of each chapter, Wilkin lists verses that pertain to each character quality of God. I’ve been writing some of them in my prayer journal, but a reader could also memorize these. She also lists some questions for reflection, which would also be a lot of fun to talk about in a group.
If you are looking to learn more about who God is, or maybe you just need a refresher course, this book is for you! The writing is witty and fun, but each chapter is packed with truths that will change and grow your understanding about God and help you to value him even more. I have been comforted, challenged, and motivated to learn more about God in this book!
