In His Image: 10 Ways God Calls Us to Reflect His Character Reviews
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
“In His Image” is a study of 10 of God’s communicable attributes and how we should strive to reflect His character in these ways. It is a follow-up to her 2016 book “None Like Him” which does the same with 10 incommunicable attributes. This books starts with the attribute of holiness and that everything we do either illuminated or obscures the character of God therefore we must strive to become more like Him and therefore grow in Holiness! My very favorite chapters were those on justice (God’s J ...more
We know that God is merciful and gracious but we typically try to separate the two, instead of as Jen puts it, seeing them as sisters. We separate God’s mercy and grace from His justice when in fact all three are connected.
Know God: In His Image is an invitation to learn more about the character of God. As children of God, we should hunger for a connection with Him. That connection will deepen as we spend time getting to know who He is.
Know yourself: As we learn more about who God is, a stark co ...more
Jen Wilkin begins by urging readers to ask a different question: not "What does God want me to do?" but, "Who does God want me to be?" and has written a great Bible study on growing in God's image by describing ten of His attributes. Her ideas are backed by scripture. Her writing is clear, her points vivid, and her chapters concise. Each chapter concludes with a few questions that encourage the reader to apply the ideas to our lives; keeping a journal is suggested, and I found it very helpful. I ...more
Received an early copy for review.
Jen Wilkin is an author I'm starting to love. I love her writing style, her thoughts and how much scripture she includes in her books. In His Image is all about how we can reflect the character of God and not by just one example, but she gives us 10 different ways to do so. This is not a book you want to fly through. This is a book you want to pace yourself with and use a Bible with to take in-depth notes and really grasp the points that Jen shares. I love that ...more
"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 a Bible study on ten attributes of God that Christians are called to reflect. She talked about: holy, loving, good, just, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful, and wise. The author explored what it means to be holy, loving, etc., in a biblical sense--how God displays this attribute and how we can reflect this in our own lives. At the end of each chapter, she provided several Bible verses for meditation, questions for reflection, and a prayer prompt. This book worked ...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
